Eastern Village was compelled by the fire marshall to get an all-in-one 
range/fire suppression system. It is loud, slow to heat up, awkward to use, and 
a total waste. Folks mostly cook at home, microwave, or bake.  

Our 2 wall ovens are Kenmore Elite and they work well and are easy to clean. 
They also come standard with Sabbath mode. 

We have a large residential fridge, which is very quiet. 

We have 2 dishwashers. One is a standard residential dishwasher. The other is a 
small commercial dishwasher that takes about 4 minutes a load. Our events vary 
in size from 6 up to 80 people, so it is nice to have clean up options.

We have Corelle dishes too. And donated mugs. And sturdy and cheap Ikea 

The laundry is upstairs and used by a lot of households - I'm not sure how 
many. At least 20 and maybe 30 or more on a regular basis. We lease our washers 
and dryers and cover the lease in our monthly condo fees.  (We also lease some 
of our exercise room equipment.)
