Fellow hounds you cannot begin to imagine how glad I am to see the end of 2006. It has not been a good year at all. Back surgery, splitting my forehead open the weekendx before Thanksgiving and getting 24 stitches, my DH called for a rescue yesterday when he went out to get beer. He had a broken axle and now today.....I am cleaning up my kitchen in prep for some cooking for tomorrow and tonight and I managed to shatter my 16 year old GE Monogram glass cooktop. I think it was pure glass fatigue. It was a slight tap in sliding the counter saver back next to it and it is still crackling . Looks just like a busted tv screen. There is no way i am getting a new one before Tues and I will need to do some shopping and homework. This was one of those 5 burner sealed glass tops. My DH doesn't see why I cannot continue to cook on it anyone know a reason why not? I will have to replace it with a same size cooktop that fits into the counter top, any suggestions? Replacing the countertop to fit in a cooktop that has the knobs under it on the front is not an option. So still okay to use until replaced and suggestions for a replacement would be welcome.
