Question

replacing stove


My stove has seen its last day. We really need to replace it. It is a drop in model from the 80s. Drop ins are so much more expensive that regular ovens. What would my husband & I need to do before we could replace it?

You looking to go to a slide in style or free standing style?

Probably remove the old drop in range, remove the lower cabinet to the floor to make the opening for a slide in or a free standing range. Check the opening width, most free standing ranges are 30" wide.
