    we were supposed to spend a pile of money on all the windows. Instead, we got recycled windows (including 4-casement and 3-casement ones - nothing shoddy) and spent the big cash on a 48" Viking with two ovens (small and large), 6 burners, and a grill. I love the stove, but there are more efficient brands available now. I note especially that there are no small burners on the Viking, and flame goes around the outside of small pans (in case anyone is looking into buying one of these "professional" ranges.

    We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.

      weather, it costs nothing.  Doing that allows your heating unit to relax a bit, so go ahead and cook!

      •  True enough. But it's not that cold that often. (1+ / 0-)

        I'd rather Viking get it together to provide an aftermarket fix to their burners. Some friends recently bought a range that has a lot of energy efficient things that ours doesn't (not Viking). It wasn't available when we bought this, though, so not kicking ourselves about it. We do love the range, but I actually would recommend others above it now.
