Radiant electric glass cooktop/range. Am I crazy?

anniette | Sep 3, 202003:17 PM     107

I have had a 36” 6 burner Viking range for 30 years. I would never have considered even looking at an electric range; I thought them a hindrance to good cooking.

And yet, here I am at a beach cottage using a GE radiant glass top, convection oven, with real pleasure.

I am impressed, as is my serious baker/cook husband, and our guests, who are also dedicated cooks.

We have each, independently, expressed awe at the speed and even heat of the oven (I’ve fancied a dual-fuel for quite a while), but now, also, at the speed this GE boils water for pasta, espresso. We have cooked delicate fish and shellfish, too. Am I opening my mind or losing it???

These current smooth, glass top electric radiant ranges with convection ovens seem quite appealing. Am I crazy??
