Remodeling Your Kitchen?
Check out these stoves
What do you think about when you hear the word “stove?” Is it something like this picture? What kind of stove did you grow up with? Maybe like the picture it was gas. For me, it was an electric stove. The kind that turned red as it got hot. When I was 5 years old I learned that it stays pretty hot even after it turns off. I stood on the stove to get some potato chips off the top of the refrigerator and stepped on one of the burners. Let’s just say I only did that one time. The bottom of my foot had blisters for weeks. If you are looking for a kitchen remodel, a new stove will be right up there in your mind.
Before you start remodeling your kitchen, check out these different types of stoves.
First, look at this one from Africa.
It comes from BioLite, a company that manufacturers unique cooking stoves. This one uses wood-burning fires and has the ability to capture thermal energy and then turn it into electricity. So the stoves can provide electric power to do things like charge phones. How do they connect them? By USB, of course!
The stoves also greatly reduce the amount of smoke that comes from the previous cooking fires. And we can all do with a little less smoke in our eyes. I haven’t seen one of these in any San Diego kitchens, but maybe somewhere in California you’ll find one.
Or what about this stove from a company called La Cornue? You want fancy? This company is highest of the high end cooking equipment designers and manufacturers. Previously available in France, the stove is now being brought to America by the Purcell Murray Company. Each of these ranges—they must be called ranges, not stoves—is hand-wrought by one individual person. This stove-builder—I mean range-builder, follows the production and even puts the finishing touches on it. Of course there is the highest of quality control. La Cornue likes to tell people that you’ll have to wait two months to get your range even if you’re the queen of England. Like she does her own cooking!
I wonder how long it would take the real housewives of Orange County to get one of these if they were getting their kitchen remodeled?
Back again to the simple. This stove/oven is found in Caatinga, Brazil. The climate there is semi-arid and periods of long droughts followed by an intense, short rainy season. These folks first hear about efficient cook stove technologies through the television. They are now able to greatly reduce the amount of wood they use as fuel. This is good, since trees are harder to come by in Caatinga.
Finally, check out this one. Yes, this is exactly what it looks like. Everywhere that it’s red is a place you can cook. This comes from my nightmare! This William stove uses the entire top as cooking space. How do you operate it? Touchscreen, of course. The stove top has 1,500 “honeycombs.” They get activated when you place a pan on them. It uses 85% of the stove top as cooking area.
