I was watching food network tv the other day. I think I saw something unusual or out of the ordinary. I don't even remember what the show was called but it was before the live Thanksgiving cook by celeb chefs. Anyway, the show features chef Aaron Sanchez making some salad at home. Holy cow, I was impressed by his range, not by how extravagant, "industrial" or "retro" it is but how actually down to earth and down right "cheap" it looks (I could be wrong, it could be some 20000 btu range costing a gazillion dollars). I certainly feel better about my range. I know deep down if you enjoy cooking you will cook on any stove, almost any stove, cheap or expensive.
