An O'Keefe and Merritt gas stove? What's so special about them?
I'm eating an omelet I just cooked on one, and the only things I notice
unusual about it are:
- the damn top keeps falling down
- it has a built-in griddle
- it has two ovens, which is somewhat compensated for by only one of
- each burner has two rings of fire, one around the outside and one in
- its pilot-light-driven burner-lighting action is relatively
unreliable (my fiancee Beatrice often prefers to strike a match)
- the burners are really hard to control
- it has dripping pans that pull out in front so you can clean up most
grease drippings in the sink instead of with a sponge
- the stovetop is hot all the time
- the stovetop is stainless steel, so you don't need to worry about
scratching it; you can scrub it with steel wool if you have to
OK. I guess, on further consideration, it is a damned fine stove.
