Why being prepared may be the best way forward for Cooker repairs
Imagine the scenario. Your in-laws have just arrived on Christmas morning to be greeted with a confidence from you that simply says – ‘I’m prepared’.
You have gone out of your way to make sure everything is perfect so that you can make a lasting impression, right down to the gloriously large and bushy tree, with brand new, glistening baubles and lights. You have invested in the most expensive crackers you could find, kitted the drinks cabinet better than a supermarket booze section, put out a bountiful supply of snacks and nibbles and even bought a festive table cloth and place mats. You want this Christmas to be one that will always be remembered by your loved one’s nearest and dearest kitchenaid stove repair los angeles.
Unfortunately, but not by design, it will. Because several hours later you are musing into your Bailey’s how everything suddenly went wrong and how you had to serve your guests with all the trimmings, minus the succulent turkey and roast potatoes cooked in goose fat like you planned. Sure the vegetables were steamed to perfection thanks to the fancy new electric steamer you had bought the week before, but they really don’t go down too well with the microwave kebabs and burgers you had leftover in the bottom of the freezer.
What went wrong? Well the answer to that is easy. The Cooker element decided to choose this day of all days to give up the ghost and pack in working. You may have even laughed it off, if only you had not been on a domestic appliance spare parts website just a fortnight before. ‘What are the odds?’ you asked yourself at the time, ‘of my cooker breaking down on Christmas day, of all days’.
Well however far reaching the odds were, it has happened and now you have your wish. The other half of the family will no doubt remember this Christmas dinner for many years to come, probably not fondly either. And the odds on that are very good.
Okay, admittedly, the story above is an exaggeration and in reality the odds are quite high against it happening on a specific day like Christmas, but the moral remains the same; sometimes, as the scouts would say, it is better to be prepared.
Cooker elements are not an expensive commodity but they are one of the main appliance parts to go on what is a much used and often relied on domestic appliance. To have the correct spare part sitting in a kitchen cupboard may well save you several days of having to pester the neighbours, buy a short term solution such as a tabletop stove or eat cold food such as sandwiches for several days while you have to research, find and wait for the correct part to be delivered.
