i'm in love...

...if it is possible to be in love with an appliance.

I saw this handsome range at the Saint Vincent DePaul annual sale.
It was just like the movies - I spied it across the room and ran in slow-motion around the tables, through the chairs and knocking blue haired ladies out of my way to put my hands on this beauty.


It's a 1950s Frigidaire range. It is in wonderful shape and everything works -except the clock, but I think that might be my fault. I'm sure I'm not pushing a button or something that I need to.

My kitchen is too narrow to get a good photograph, but it is sweet. The door on the left is a warmer oven, the door on the right has an oven and a broiler or two ovens or take a section out and have one big oven. There are three burners and the deep pot (works like a crock pot or can be used for canning or double boiling).

Luckily I was able to fit it in the truck. The porcelain makes it extra heavy. The best part is that my old stove was able to go straight to a family that needed one.

I wish Monica lived closer, so she could come an over and check it out.

ooooh, that's a beauty, alright. It reminds me of my long-lost glossy milk-chocolate-brown range [also with warming oven. so practical! so functional!].

congratulations. Bake something delicious!

Then keep it warm!

That is the coolest new old stove! I had a similar one, but it didn't have a deep pot. Have fun with that!

I have this exact stove in my loft, without the deep pot mind you. works like a charm. Cant seem to find any information on the net about it, would love to get it restored.
