What do you do when your oven repairs are too expensive?
Hamilton Beach Toaster Oven
This last week we had a big wind storm, and the electricity went out. That happens often enough, but when the power came back on, the electronics in our stove were not working. We had the repair man come and check out the stove. It was going to be $450 parts plus labor.
We decided not to have the oven fixed, but we still need an oven. It's time to get creative. The range still works just fine, the computer just won't turn on the oven part.
Here's what we came up with . . . We can use the Hamilton Beach 31197 Countertop Oven with Convection and Rotisserie for baking. It only costs $79. An added plus is that it doesn't have any of those temperamental electronic components.
The only thing that is too big for the toaster oven is the Thanksgiving turkey. Here's how we're handling that . . . We're going to use the Rival RO180 18-Quart Roaster Oven.
That's a $122 solution to a $700-$800 problem.
This will also help us in an emergency situation. The counter top oven could plugged into a generator or solar panels if we didn't have electricity.
