The Holidays are *full* of cooking for me. Our main one is Thanksgiving but of course we also have Christmas. We do something on Christmas Eve but on Christmas morning we make a huge breakfast. Shrimp and Grits, hash browns, bagels, eggs, more food then you could ever need or eat but it’s become quite a tradition.
This year I’m beyond excited to have kicked this stove to the curb
and replaced it with this MayTag 6.2 cu. ft. capacity induction range with EvenAir™ true convection and Speed Heat™ induction elements.
Here’s a closer look at the stove top
My old stove had coils, coils which were bent and uneven which made cooking a lot harder, almost nothing cooked evenly especially on the bigger burners which were essential for cooking our meals. On the good side, it worked. But needless to say when we got the MayTag stove I was thrilled.
There are so many things to love about this new stove.
Without a doubt my favorite feature is the Speedheat, it’s what makes dinner so much easier every single night. Pretty much with every single dinner we have water that needs to be boiled. I used to *hate* waiting for water to boil sometimes it felt like forever. With the speed heat water is boiling in no time at all.
Another thing I love about this range is how easy it is to clean the stove.
This stove uses AquaLift Self Clean Technology. The process is really easy. You wipe down any extra pieces that may be in the stove and then pour two cups of water into the bottom of the stove after removing the wire racks.
Press clean and then start! It only takes 40 minutes at around 200 degrees to clean the oven!
After the 40 minutes was up I open the stove. It looked pretty similar to the before picture but then I started wiping it down with paper towels and used a scrubbing pad for the extra hard stuff.
Before long everything from the bottom of the stove was gone. I have to have B do a little more scrubbing on it to get the stuff that was on the back. I was having a really hard time because of my big ole 27+ week pregnant belly!
Some of our favorite dinners get baked (think Chicken in the Oven or Lasagna) so having the speed heat for cooking the noodles or boiling potatoes for Mashed Potatoes with the chicken AND the easy clean for the oven (Lasagna almost always have over spill) makes it so much easier for me to cook and clean. And because the oven doesn’t have to get ridiculously hot to clean and since it only uses water it makes it really easy to clean the stove weekly (now if only I could remind myself of that).
What if anything about your stove makes Dinner Easier? What would you like most about having this stove?
