So when my oven quit working last year, we did without for over 6 months. Then we decided when the Labor Day sales came around we would see if we could find one we like. I really like the stove tops with the center, 5th burner. We decided to go with black as a change from the white appliances we have had for years. Here is our stove/oven with the center burner being used to cook bacon on a griddle.
I thought the black stove would be easier to keep clean than the white. I was wrong. Even after wiping down with a bleach cleaner it still has streaks. The only thing I found to make it look brand new is a stainless steel cleaner. If anyone out there has a hint on how to keep the streaks down on black appliances, I would love to know.
