Shopping for a stove

August 18th, 2011 at 06:34 pm

We needed to buy a stove for the upstairs apartment for the rental. We decided to check out a nearby Habitat for Humanity warehouse. People donate things to Habitat for Humanity, they in turn sell it and the proceeds are used to build houses for low income families. We actually found a stove in really good condition for $140; it just needed a little bit of surface cleaning with soft scrub and it was good to go. We've been pricing new ones and the cheapest we found cost about $350. Here is a picture of the stove we purchased.

P.S. My husband dropped the stove off and it works great!

    That's great. A lot of people don't know about Habitat for Humanity. A great way to score a deal and donate to a worthy organization.

    habitat for humanity is an excellent organisation, and you got a great deal! (not that it matters, as it's for a rental and I am sure people appreciate a stove no matter what!... but I had one of those induction stoves at a previous rental place and vowed to never buy one for myself lol!)

    I've owed those types of stoves before and I currently have one in my home and I actually like them. I clean my stove every day with a non abrassive scrub cleaner and the top is sparkly clean every day.

    I agree, easyto clean, I just didn't like that fact that They don't seem to have very good temperature control. :-)
