STT 20" Electric range/stove needed...Please help!
I am looking for a 20" electrical range/stove for my condo. I will buy new or used as long as it is working order and can pick it up from any STT location next week.
Please email me or reply to the post if you have one I can buy or you know where I can get a deal on one.
Any help is much appreciated.
You can try American furniture across from Charlotte Amalie High School. That's where I purchased one a few years ago.
some times Home Depot has them. I think they were about 250. American has them also. About 400.
I think $400 is about the usual price for a very basic model 20" stove these days (I searched for them for about 2 months late last fall). Kind of high, given that one can sometimes get a larger stove with many more features for around $500 on sale. One store told me the high price was because it was a "special order". I dealt with it by moving a good quality used 20" stove I had in a larger unit into a smaller unit then getting the larger $500 model on sale for the bigger unit.
Given the relatively high price of new, quality used is a good way to go on a 20" stove , or, if at all possible, consider using a larger sized new stove as it will likely be a better deal.
I've bought my stoves and one fridge from Western Auto.
Home Depot carries a "no-name" brand, which I can't remember. It is not insulated, and when you use the oven, the sides get too hot to touch. I got one at the store G-Dub-Ya mentioned. It's a Hotpoint (I think) and it's been great. It was several years ago, and I don't remember the price, but it was reasonable....or I wouldn't have bought it! I think finding a used one may be difficult. They really are kind of a specialty item. Another alternative may be a 2 burner cook-top and a microwave-convection oven mounted above or below. Just thinking "out-loud".:)
Hey Juanita, the two burner built in cooktop is not a bad idea either for those who either don't need the oven or can fit a separate oven unit into the kitchen.
The two burner cooktops are relatively easy to find (Sears, Best Buy), at least stateside and probably online, there are many options to choose from, and they are pretty light weight (I considerered carrying one in my suitcase after I saw a few of them during stateside Christmas shopping. I opted instead to switch in the smaller stove I already owned since the separate oven wouldn't work.)
I looked at your pictures. Would love to see more. We almost bought your house. We were 2 days from closing when the seller went in for heart surgery. It drug on and on and on, until we finally said forget it, we're moving to STX! What a location you have, and the possibilities....! I'd love to see what you've done to it.
Thanks for looking! We are pretty happy with the place. It's come a long way and there are still plenty of upgrades we're planning to do, but it is a labor of love for sure.
I've also enjoyed the photos of *your* places! I'm always showing them to the hubby ! Maybe we could have "virtual house tours" somewhere as a subset of this list. I'd love to see what people are doing inside and outside of their places regarding decor, landscaping, etc.
