What is your opinion?

I need your help. We are in need of a stove. I found one on Ebay! It is brand new and it is located in the very next town to ours. Here is my problem....it is black! What do you think? Would this black stove go okay in our kitchen? We are not getting a new refrigerator until this one dies. This means that I will have a black stove and a white fridge. Do I even worry about it? Or should I just wait for the Lord to provide a white stove? I do like the black stove, but I am worried that finger prints will be much more evident on the black. What is your experience with black appliances?

I think a black stove would look GREAT in your house. Especially with the dark wood molding (or is it moulding?). But, alas, fingerprints are a pain on any and all things black. Though I find that my kids sure enjoy helping mommy clean off the prints (something very exciting about weilding a bottle of Windex). If the price is right, I say go for it!

Oh, but do you have freecycle in your area? Check it out on yahoo groups! It is theeee greatest thing... It's to help people recycle items (and no money is exchanged). On our local freecycle, people have posted asking for treadmills, giving away beds and applicances, people have found - usuable - vehicles! I LOOOOOVE freecycle!

I am happy to have once again a oven that works. One draw back is it never looks clean. It always has smudges of some kind on it even right after wiping it off. One of my girls even commented on it. The paint also seems to be easily scratched. Mine doesn't look new even though it is only a couple of months old.

Freecycle can be a great blessing.

I second et's post. Freecycle is awesome. I've never gotten anything, but have unloaded some still usable stuff that was cluttering my place. I don't have a black appliance, so no experience on that front, but in looking at the pic. of your kitchen I don't think it would be any more difficult to keep clean than what you already have. And I think it would look good.
btw- I could use a good babysitter, could you send the oldest my way? :) What's a little drive!?

I'm the proud owner of a black stove and a white refrigerator - so of course I'm going to say go for the black stove! The black does show more fingerprints and food splatters, but I have found that window cleaner does wonders on cleaning it without leaving streaks. My favorite is Clorox Green Works (it smells like real lemons) - but of course you can make your own window cleaner solution too. And thanks for the link to my blog - I love sharing the freebies!
