Thanks for the explanation and BTW your cook-top looks brand new unless you PSed the heck out of the grates. What brand is it? Surely not Gene Lewis :twisted:
What are the cylindrical things on the left?

The cooktop is a Frigidaire Gallery 5 burner gas cooktop that I bought in February of 2010. The silver cylindrical things on the left are salt and pepper shakers. And yes, keeping the cooktop clean can be a pita. :rolleyes: ;-)a The exhaust hood has two mini floodlights that I can set to low or high for max. illumination.

It hadn't occurred to me to post pictures of appliances, but now that there's a precedent, here's our stove, bought as part of the remodel in 2015. It's humbler than your cooktop, navydoc, but the hood (Zephyr brand) is similar, with two LED lights having low and high settings. I designed the glass-tile backsplash and physically made the central part in subassemblies. Then a tilesetter put it all together on the wall.

The spices that went into our homemade Blackened Chicken Tenders.
The currency was to provide a sense of scale of our purchase.
The card was a birthday card I found for my spouse.

I couldn't find a thread to post a photo of my kettle other than this one and I posted my cooktop in response to Renata's question but I'm glad to see you posting your kitchen appliances as well. I love your tile backsplash and wish I had anything other than the wallpaper that is there now. You are very creative. I keep thinking about making a custom stainless steel splash but just never seem to get around to it.

Oh, and you can call me Gene if you wish. ("You can call me anything but late to dinner.")

Wow, all those spices would probably make an old shoe taste good! :-) ;-)a

I see you must be in Worchester, Ma. Mark. My ancestors arrived in Massachusetts in 1630 and settled around Dedham. It was my 3rd great grandfather that brought his family west to Stillman Valley, Illinois in 1838.

I think what I like most about my cooktop is the large center burner. It's great for stock pots, tea kettles, etc. Oh, and the small one, back right, for keeping pots warm.

Nice blue flame Gene... natural gas? I had to put in a propane tank, so I get a bit of an orange tip. But I have 3 27k BTU burners. I'll shoot it lit up someday...

Here's the pride and joy.

Beautiful cooktop Jim, I'd love to see it 'lit up' sometime. There are times I wish I had the space for a more professional range and the rest of the equipment that makes up a full kitchen but since I live alone, that's just a pleasant dream at this point.

Oh, and yes, I have natural gas for the house but, you just reminded me that I need to get my 20 lb propane tank refilled. I use that for my outdoor gas griddle. :-)

Thanks! Stainless steel is used a lot in kitchens now, but it collects fingerprints and other marks so easily. We went for a color scheme of white with red major accents and black minor accents. I wanted white for high reflectance when shooting small objects in the room.

Across the room from the stove, more 1" red and white tile. We get red accessories when available, like these tiny cups, now used to hold two kinds of bag closers.

Our stove has a large burner, a small one, and two medium. I wish the small one could be set even lower for a genuine simmer.

Thanks! Had it 3 years now and still get a thrill cooking on it. It has a simmer burner also... manufacturer (Bluestar) says you can set it on simmer, put the grate in it's highest position and put a square of chocolate in a pan overnight and it won't scorch. Not testing them on that one. lol

Beautiful cook-top, my dream but I have no room for a professional one like your and will just have to put up with what I have. See below :)

Well , here is mine, 11 years old, Electrolux with a mighty center triple burner good enough for some wok stir frying.
Not as clean as Gene's but good grief, I cook an awful lot every day, and sometimes fore almost an army and I run cooking classes in my kitchen...so I just have to relax and have a glass of wine and say, a speck of grease on it ain't gonna matter :)
I did the backsplash and changed it from hot pink to charcoal tiles with some stainless (the ones that look white are SS), black,and red inserts.
The center burner is triple with I believe 18,000 BTU, good enough for me :) This is the one...no longer available. https://www.electrolux​appliances.com …s/Gas-Cooktop/EW36GC55GS/ (external link)
