How meticulous are you about wiping up after spills? Electric smoothtop ranges need to be cleaned carefully after every use or you can get a residue buildup on top Franke says.

If you re not the constantly cleaning type you may want to consider electric coils which are inexpensive and easy to replace or a gas cooktop with sealed burners so spills can t leak down underneath.
If you want to add color and pattern to your kitchen this toaster is a great choice. It can only handle two slices of toast at once however so this is a better option for a single person or couple.

You could even add a glass olive oil cruet to the mix which would look great and be super handy as you re whipping up delicious meals.
