sadly parting company

Tonight I parted company with my electric range. It's a beautiful stainless KitchenAid with everything a range could possibly have. I had to give it up when we moved into a house that has gas hook-ups, and to put a 220 in the kitchen was going to cost several thousand dollars. I'm a little sad because I was very attached to this range. The family who got it will certainly love it as much as I did, and it will be cared for. And I'm doing it no favor by hanging onto it without using it. It needs to be used. But that still doesn't help the fact that I'll miss it. Have you ever parted company with a kitchen item to which you were emotionally attached? If so, what was is and why?
