Is this a painfully stupid idea? (re: kitchen appliances)

montrealeater | May 9, 2011 11:54 AM

So, I am moving into a new apartment after having lived in my current place, equipped with a gas stovetop, for a few years. The new place does not have a gas line. My problem is, I have gotten *damned* attached to the gas stovetop and am having difficulty imagining going back to the usual electric burners. An idea that popped into my head was using a combo of an oven only - maybe this: (this seems to be a well thought of appliance - I live alone and am usually only cooking for 1-3 people, but I am definitely open to recommendations) and something like a portable gas stove/set of burners. Possibly something I have seen in the outdoors shops my sister haunts? Like this (random search - no attachment to this one in particular): - maybe 2-3 of them?

Is this a ridiculous idea? Does anyone have any thoughts on workability? Recommendations for equipment? Please let me know!
