Won't Miss #35 - not having a proper oven
People who live in houses often have proper ovens, but it's relatively rare for rental apartments to have them. In fact, you are lucky if you actually get a built-in gas table and don't have to provide your own (we provided our own). Our oven is a dual-purpose microwave/oven which works pretty well, but it is very small. You can make a relatively small chicken in it and one square cookie sheet which will hold about average 9 cookies, but forget about cooking a big bird or baking two sheets of cookies at once.
I won't miss the limitations on my cooking imposed by not having a proper oven.
