legality of no stove / range


The existing stove broke, so we got rid of it and there is currently no stove, we just grill, microwave, and toaster oven food. Is this legal and OK?

I have the inspector stopping in for a plumbing inspection, and while irrelevant, I don't want him to say anything.

Any advice if I'm safe or if I should just replace the stove.

No requirement I know of that you must own a stove if you own your home.
I could be wrong, but I don't think so. Of course, the CAPACITY to install a stove is a different story, they may require a 220v outlet or gas line be available.

It's nobody's business but your own how you prepare your food. Just for your own sake though, if it was electric, make sure that the breaker is turned off, and if gas, that the valve and line are protected so that nobody inadvertantly damages or opens anything.

Here it is only illegal if you are renting out the house/Apt
IE the landlord MUST provide a stove

Don't worry about the plumber it is none of his business.
You could use a BBQ in your house if that is how you want your food cooked (as long as you own the place).
However for a more healthy cooking a stove is good thing to have.
Bon appetit!

I don't think you even need a stove installed to sell a place
Its a plug in appliance
We ended up buying a new stove anyways as the wife didn't like the existing one

Nope, sure don't, however, you DO have to have one or the other (gas or elec.) inlet available. Our old place was gas, but we left the stove too, it wasn't that old.
They may even require BOTH now, I don't know.... wouldn't surprise me a bit.
