You can open the drawer if you turn on the stove burners! You just probably shouldn't leave it open for very long.

Don’t do what I did,... I bought a place in Hooterville that I was going to flip and I hired the Monroe brothers to do the work.

There is a nice touch; the oven glove has to be taken out of drawer before turning the thing fully on.

Every time I start to cook, I get a little sleepy, and end up taking a nap instead. I've lost a lot of weight since I moved into this house.
