The hot, round things on the top = burners. The general space on top = top of the stove. The other appliance = refrigerator. I guess I must have heard somebody say "ice box" at some point during my childhood, although I don't associate that with anybody I remember. I know my parents said "refrigerator." I think my grandparents also (or at least the two of them still living when I was born), although I may be wrong about that. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
