The kitchen got a work out when I prepped for a party for 12 people. All burners and countertops were working at full capacity and the kitchen passed the test. It was great to be able to spread out into four separate work zones (2 prep, 1 dish, 1 pastry) when preparing two passed appetizers, a first course, a main course, and a dessert.
Thanksgiving was a success. The kitchen was broken in with two days of cooking and it passed the test. The Aga stove cooked the twenty- pound turkey beautifully and everyone was well fed.
