We had to buy a cook stove for our new Philippine house. Ai??Here’s our experience buying an Italian BOMPANI range. Bompani 90×60 "giant oven" stove Carol is a fantastic cook. Ai??One of her dreams was to have a decent kitchen stove. Ai??Typically kitchen stoves in the Philippines are 50 or 60 centimeters wide — 20″ to 24″. Ai??While these may have four burners they are very cramped for serious cooking. Ai??We decided we wanted a 90cm (36″) wide stove. Ai??The major brands in the Philippines are La Germania and Elba. Ai??A 90cm range costs about P70,000. Ai??This was just more than we wanted to pay. Ai??The Citi Hardware chain is marketing a smaller Italian brand — Bompani ( www.bompani.it )…

Does anyone have feedback on the Italian Bompani cook stoves? Ai??They are sold in the Philippines by Citi Hardware. Ai??The pricing seems quite a bit better than similar La Germania and Elba ranges but I wonder about parts and service. Ai??We contacted Bompani at their Italian e-mail address but never received a reply. This is the Bompani range we are looking at: Bompani 90×60 "giant oven" stove The cost is about P53,000. Ai??A similar-looking La Germania seems to be over P70,000. Ai??Any feedback? http://www.bompani.it/
