AfterAfter a week of scheduling (and rescheduling) the delivery and installation times, Sears finally delivered our new stove and installed our new microwave/hood today. Chad’s successfully made some macaroni and cheese on the stove tonight, but other than that, we haven’t had a chance to use it much yet, so it’s a little early to comment on how well it does or doesn’t work.

I am pretty pleased with the aesthetic improvement over the old one-piece stove/microwave combination that was there, although we weren’t as pleased to discover that the tiled back splash was not continued behind the previous stove, so we have a small spot between the microwave and stove that’s a somewhat dented, painted wall. Eventually, we’ll get around to fixing that … once we figure out what the best approach might be. We also have a small project ahead of us to install an outlet in the cabinet above the microwave. Despite what the Sears salesperson told us, the installer doesn’t do electrical work, so he hung the microwave for us, but it’s currently powered by an extension cord that comes out of the cabinet and plugs into the wall outlet. Hopefully that should be an easy fix …
