As a person who cooks very often, I felt it behooved me to remind all the little people who might want to emulate my example that they will need a stove for cooking. You need a stove with "on" and "off" buttons, and also a range of temperatures. My dear friend John Featherington-Stokes uses an Aga, but I wouldn't expect you to be able to afford an English stove. You will have to buy an American one.
Stoves should also have doors and lights. Be sure to get a light that goes on when you open up the stove door. Do the lights stay on when the door closes? I must ask my good friend Arabella, who writes for a gourmet magazine. The knobs should turn so the stove can be hot and not so hot, depending on your recipe. The inside of the stove, called an "oven," will have racks to hold the food you want to cook. The stove probably will also have a clock on it, but I haven't learned how to set mine yet, so you don't need one of those.
Soon I will explain how you need something called a "pot" for the top of the stove.
