Sorry for the misunderstanding, but you said:
by not including two of the most use appliances in the home?
so I started thinking about stuff that was not included (in any form) ;-)
It must be a new trend with the tiny appliances, maybe more and more landlords think that hardly anyone cooks at home anymore? That it's somehow "trendy" and sends the right message? Or maybe, but this is in stark contrast to the obviously expensive refurbishment, they think they will end up renting to students and don't want the hassle with people cooking, using up gas and electricity (and maybe not paying the bills on time), and probably ruining the nice counter tops and tiles with burnt and spilt food. Who knows. I'm baffled. ;-)
