    Cast Iron (CI)

    So, the good wife is eaten up with cooking with CI, today we gave away $800 worth of "really good, last I'll ever need" cookware. and spent $400 on ""more" "CI"" we already dabbled in some. But a couple of days ago, she decided it is the "only way to go" gotta love that mean old hide!

    So now I am thinking about surprising her with a new stove/oven this coming spring, for "my" birthday. Anyone have or familiarity with AGA, Everhot, Rayburn,, or ESSE or any other six burner cast iron replica style stove/ovens?

    If so, looking for a little feed back - goods, bads, worth the $10,000 or not?

    CI sucks for boiling pasta,,, so, we have both.
    The wife has spent maybe $200 on CI,,, of those,, after a decade,,, we daily use 3 pieces., all about 10'

    A gas stove is a remarkable change from electric,,, We love our $600 stove (price on clearance)




    4 burners, with a grill center oval burner,,, I could not cook on electric, ever, again,,,,

    I do most of cooking here and love cast iron but I can't keep my wife from putting it in dishwasher. It drives me nuts. I gave to clean it has soon has I'm done before we eat and put it away. After 42 years I can't teach her new tricks. Oh well.

    Ya, we are gas also, we did the electric coils, the electric glass top and then went gas some 15 years ago - no intentions to ever going back to electric. So, is your stove/oven a cast iron one? About the cheapest 6 burner cast iron one I am finding is about $4000 and range up near $10000. What I am trying to understand is - do I go with the lower end one or since I am stepping off into it (if I do) do I suck it up and go higher? There very well may be less expensive options out there, I just did a high level glance at them yesterday, I know nothing about them yet. This'll take some studying - I can buy another shotgun with that kind of money! Oh, she uses stoneware for breads and cookies, I'll have to see what she is using for pastas - maybe ceramic, not sure.

    That is a no-no, you might need to spank her!

    I think anything over $1,500 is just a show piece in a high end kitchen,,
    Ours is a GE Profile. It has a gas fired oven, also.
    Most "high end" ranges have an electric oven,,,

    The high humidity in our gas fired oven is perfect for the type bread we make.
    It just did the holiday turkey perfect.

    There are no features on a high end range that could get me to go shopping,,,
    I am SUPER happy with ours.

    For pasta - she had been using that stuff we gave away yesterday. She says she plans to use some of the enamel coated CI for pastas.

    This is my first note, thanks. FYI, I will pose this question on a couple other sites also. Like when I needed tires earlier this year, I asked what you all thought and very happy with what I ended up with. Thanks.
