FIRE! Wheeeee! The stove is all hooked up and working - we could cook something, or else just look at the pretty blue flames for a while. Sooooo.... Pretty... Blue... Flames...
Ok, back to reality - stop wasting the propane!
The burner controls work very nicely. Each burner is a little different, designed for different types of cooking, and the knobs are set up a little differently for each one too. It'll take a little getting used to which one does what, but it is clearly a sweet setup. The burners light like magic, just a little 'click' and it's on. They also have a simmer setting which is something that will come in really handy - not like the old farm stove, where it seemed the burner was always either in danger of going out or of burning the rice.
I haven't tried the oven yet, but the controls look pretty straightforward for it. I guess I'll have to sit down and read through the documentation that came with the unit at some point, if for no other reason than to figure out how to set the clock. :)
The downdraft exhaust fan seems to work pretty well. Since we didn't come prepared to burn some food, Cary just held his hand over the opening. It draws a pretty good breeze.
