Lots of decorative touches on the shelf. I do use almost all of them but couldn't resist some babbles. This range is really neat and definately superior in quality to ordinary stoves. We are lucky to have this! I have made black current jam, baked a cherry crisp, and Swiss Chard Strata all with local ingredients as well as making our favorite Mole Pulled Pork Tacos and BLT's, Corn on the Cob, and the list is growing. Spoiled Girl. Happy Girl.
