Warning, this post is detrimental to you pocketbook

One of the things we are struggling with making a decision on for the house is a stove. We know we want stand alone, 36", all gas, with multiple shelves in the oven (for multiple baking sheets full of doggy cookies).

We have looked at everything from Wolf, Viking, American Range, BlueStar, Dacor and the list goes on but all come with bad reviews of some sort and some have higher sticker shock than others but none compare to what I fell in love with today.

May I introduce to you the Ch√Ęteau Series from La Cornue. Made just outside of Paris, these stoves have got to the Porsche of the culinary world and are basically completely custom designed and made for you specifically.

But ultimately its like having a mad crush on Tom Sellick, read - its never going to happen. Why you ask? Simply put, the $103,150 price tag would just judge our budget a tad over. And when you amortize the cost over all the doggy cookies it would bake, its a pretty pricey pooch bakery.

So we will keep looking and reading reviews and just in case I will cruise Craigslist in  case anyone bought one, didn't like it and are willing to let it go for a few dollars.
