Our New Electric Stove & Kitchen Reno Progress

New Electric Stove & kitchen reno progress - GE cafe series in our farmhouse

It’s official, I have a working stove after months and months of not having a working oven! Our non working stove issue was such a problem that I had even bought a toaster oven just to help in the meantime :).   Although, Jason and I initially disagreed on what kind of electric stove we should get we eventually ordered a GE café series range.

Our New Electric Stove

Our previous stove was over 20 years old and would regularly beep error codes or stop working every time I turned it on.  Because of the oven’s age and condition we had decided it didn’t make sense to pay someone to fix it.  Jason had even tried to fix it on his own but sadly was unsuccessful.  Below is a picture of our kitchen soon after moved in, you can see our old stove on the right.

As per usual, we both had totally different ideas about what kind of oven to buy :).  I would have been happy with pretty much any vintage looking stove while Jason really wanted to buy new. Well… since I love my husband and because Thanksgiving is in literally less than a month I gave in and let him order the one he wanted :).

Our new oven was a former store model and Jason found it for 1/2 price on Sears outlet.  I am not going to lie I was little sad to not get the vintage oven look I wanted but this oven is by far the nicest oven I have ever owned!!!

Our new range is a stainless steel slide in model.  It has a huge oven capacity and I think it will cook this year’s 20+ pound turkey with no problem.  The one feature I am super excited about is the “probe.”  It registers the temperature of what you are cooking so you know exactly when your food is cooked to the right temp.

I tried it out 2 nights ago with a chicken.  We have 22 coming for Thanksgiving this year so I want to have this baby figured out before everyone gets here :).  The five burners on our stovetop will also be a big help for the Thanksgiving dishes we have planned!  And… it has a griddle which was really important to Jason because of all the pancakes and gravy he has planned, Ha!

Although, we have a white subway tile planned for the backsplash I decided to paint the area behind the stove anyway.

I am sure that ugly wall would have driven me CRAZY otherwise!

And for a sneak peak of what’s next for our kitchen renovation.  I shared this picture on Instagram of an old vintage stepback cupboard we found on Etsy.

For the past few weeks Jason and I have been really busy stripping and sanding this huge piece so that we can bring it into our kitchen.  I can not wait to see what it looks like and decorate it once it is finally ready to bring inside, Woo Hoo!!!  To see what else we have planned for our farmhouse kitchen check out all the details of our plan, here.  Thanks so much for checking out our new electric range!

  1. I love your site and have spent many hours looking at what you have done and what next is coming. I would have insisted on an enamel farmhouse oven and not given in. My stainless steel stove with five burners gas top with electric oven and its is so hard to keep clean that it drives me crazy. Please keep giving us your ideas as I now havr my own wood working shed. I’m so happy.

    1. Hi Donna! Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my blog! Only time will tell whether or not we made the right decision on our new electric stove. Thankfully we bought it on sale and I am very thankful to have a working oven again :). I do hear you on the cleaning of the stove top :). Congrats on your wood working shed! Take care, Tara

  2. I love your new stove, Tara. I hear you about not getting the vintage look you want but hey…it sounds like it’s got such great options that most older stoves won’t have! I have a slide-in gas stove that looks similar to yours. The front panel control section is what Iike most (just a more streamlined look). I’m enjoying following along your kitchen progress. Good luck with having 22 ppl over for Thanksgiving! I’m sure it’s going to be another memorable holiday! Xo
