We feel like the luckiest family today, because Abt Appliances and Electrolux delivered our prize-winning appliances this past weekend! Aren’t they beautiful?! In case you didn’t read last week’s blog, my husband Bill entered his first ever cooking contest and won all of these appliances- for cupcakes! Or actually, it was for “Cubcakes” in honor of his beloved team.
We are having the best time trying to figure out all the new gadgets, and how things start just by a wave and a touch. I have only accidentally started the dishwasher about 3 times so far! I still don’t know all the microwave buttons yet, either. I love having 5 burners on the stove, and oven racks that slide out so easily, I have to get used to not pulling them so hard. And the French door refrigerator – sometimes I just go open it for no reason and stare!
Thank you Abt and Electrolux, for a really fun contest and a spectacular prize! I just might need some advice on not starting my dishwasher accidentally; but I have really clean dishes!
Very nice. Those WaveTouch controls take some getting used to. Sometimes I forget that to turn the oven on you have to select upper oven, then bake, then set the temperature, and finally touch the start key. That final step slips my mind.
Enjoy your new kitchen.
Funny you say that, because I have done the same thing! It will take some getting used to, but we’re having fun in the process. I love having an extra burner and the extra stove on the bottom, which was completely unexpected! I used the bottom area for storing roasting pans and cooling racks; now I will have more baking space for Thanksgiving!
I wish the fifth burner had been available with the dual fuel range, but four works since there are just two of us. That second oven is very helpful Last Thanksgiving, I used the lower oven for baking the dressing and rolls. It’s also handy for reheating something while something else is baking in the big oven. Let me know how you like your microwave. I suspect that will be the next thing we have to replace.
The lower oven is perfect for dressing and rolls. I really love the microwave. I just need to play around with all the extras. The only problem I have with it, is that it is higher and deeper than my other one, and not being very tall, I have to go on my tippy toes a lot!
Just wonderful and well deserved
Thank you, Lisa!
Wow what a wonderful prize. How nice to have a brand new kitchen that someone else paid for!
So are the cubcakes posted anywhere that we can see?
Congratulations to you and your husband.
I love KITCHENS! Your new appliances are fantastic. Have so much fun (sounds like you are already)! Thanks for sharing your celebration. More people could celebrate kitchen appliances, non?
Vicki- I just checked out your blog – it’s fabulous! Thanks for the comments – and I will email you the cubcake recipe sometime soon.
Yes, Catherine – kitchen appliances should be celebrated! What would we do without them? And, yes, I am having fun with my new ones!
