There are a heck of a lot of different types of stoves out there these days. Some of them look like you need a training course to operate them. All those options are supposed to make cooking easier but if you have to have a manual to figure out how to set it..that might not be easier at all. At least not at first. Makes you wonder if buying a new is really worth it. If it really does use quite a bit less energy than old ones then it would be..and they do claim the new ones are more energy efficient.
And of course they are on sale right now..
