Today, as my hubby was baking pizza in the oven, a fly landed on our flat glass top range. He smacked down a plastic spatula, missed the fly but shattered the glass top!!!!!!! I was ticked!!!

Since it costs nearly as much to replace the glass as buying a new one (and I'm not exaggerating), we had to drag ourselves into the store to buy a new one. I talked them down 15% with free delivery and haul awsy, then when I found out I'd be getting the floor model (which was in really really great condition) I talked them down another 5% plus got them to throw in the extended warranty for free. Score!!!!! So 20% off, free warranty, free delivery, and one happy lady.

However, that was a super expensive fly - that he didn't even kill!

Here's what my new "baby" looks like (or at least very close to it) - I'm not sure if this is the exact model, but when looking online this was the closest to what I remember it looking like:

Not a darn thing. Our previous oven was stainless, so it matches. :)

No more trying to swat ninja flies!
