    Mine is gas, and has three large burners plus a small. The small is in the back, surprisingly.

    I use all 4 burners about every night. When I'm cooking for a church dinner or holiday I often wish I had more. Christmas Eve will be one of those days I'm wishing for more.

    I use 3 or 4 burners every night. One for starch, one for veggies, one for meat...and if we're having it, one for sauce or dessert. Using the stove this way I can get a meal on in the table in under half an hour if I plan right.

    My oven is a bit big at the moment. I'm off gluten and don't bake a lot right now. If I do it's like one loaf of GF bread at a time. No cookies, etc. I might bake a pie or a crisp. There's just DH and I so I don't cook a lot.

    No natural gas here, we have a propane tank for our gas stove.

    I'd keep the 4 burners but downsize to a 24" instead of the 30" we currently own...This is for designing our cabin...the fridge will be 14 cu. sq. ft instead of the 18 cu. sq. ft. we have right now as well, trying to think streamlined so I can get more counter space.

    I can't remember when I use more that 2 burners @ a time. I use my roaster for big family meals & my crockpot. And of course, my microwave.

    i have 4 burners and a warmer burner. I like that feature. I usually use 3 burners with one for tortillas to be heated. I would
    love to have a grill feature. That would be awesome.

    I have noticed that I have a lot of pots and pans but mainly
    use the same 2 or 3. Anyone else like this?

    Yes. I had a full Paderno set of pots and pans given to me when we were married 32 years ago. I still use them and only had to replace the skillet when it was damaged in a move. But mostly I use the large saucepan, the tiniest saucepan, and the next smallest saucepan. After that the stock pot. But truthfully the least used is the skillet and another deep saucepan that came with the set.

    When I really get going I have 4 burners running (2 large/2 small), the slow cooker, the veggie steamer & the toaster oven all humming along at the same time. Usually this is occurs on a Sunday morning when I start cooking up for the week.

    During the week I will usually have 1-2 burners going at different times each day. I do use my microwave a lot also when I could be using a pan or toaster oven (lack of time & patience to wait I guess)....

    Thing here is that we don't buy many convenience meals and most items have to been cooked. We also don't eat out but a few times a year (and that's usually when on vacation or something) so my kitchen and its appliances really earn their keep around here.

    Now the fridge- well I could use an apartment size one of those. Mine is about 1/4 full of food at any given time. The other 3/4's are stuffed with water jugs & large pieces of foam to help take up space and make it run more efficient. However, my freezer & deep freezer are jam packed full.
