Was on a washer repair call and walked into a kitchen frozen in time. Of course, I thought of all the hardcore GE fans and snapped a few pics of the stars. Time for 'kitchen porn'. LOL,

First the dishwasher. A GE Potscrubber. I am uncertain of the age but all the appliances match and am positive you will peg the age...

Next up the cooktop. Clean! In fact, it is ALL clean!

What could possibly complement this cooktop?

A classy hood, of course!

By the way, that WAS a separate hood for the ovens!

Sorry, but no matching refrigerator. A single older gentleman lives there, so the dishwasher hasn't been used in a while which would explain the missing rinse aid cap and jump up nozzle. Still, a kitchen frozen in time.

Wow - pardon me while I wipe the drool from my chin....


Very nice!  The cooking appliances are early 1960's, the dishwasher appears to be mid-1970's; probably a replacement for a yellow dishwasher of the same vintage as the cooking items.


How nice to see a well-kept and fully-appreciated older kitchen.

I have that over-the-stove hood! It's not hooked up yet and mine doesn't have the woodgrain. Teh front moves. You can lift up the back of the hood and it will cover the knobs, than it will drop down so the front is vertical and hidden.

Everything there looks so good, that to me, it wouldn't matter what kind of fridge--least if it were anything yellow or gold like that (GE-or non-GE) would do!

I had that dishwasher for a long time.

You will see me vote for Michele Bachmann before you see me get another.

1970s GE DWs

Sandy you are just so much more diplomatic than I am, but I certainly agree that I would not want to use one of those GEs today.

Suicidal Tendencies:

The one I had was hell-bent on its own destruction. During the 10 or so years I owned it, it went through 2 motor/pump modules, a timer, a detergent cup assembly and a set of racks.

It also developed huge scabrous patches in its Plastisol liner, which the so-called repair kit slowed down not a whit, and the door seal got a slow, seep-y leak that no one could fix. Repainting the lower front panel was a twice-yearly affair, because the seal leak caused the top of it to rust.

It was sort of the Kurt Cobain of dishwashers, dying young and needlessly.

Potscrubber dishwasher....

funktionalart's profile picture
looks to be from around circa 1975-78 ish....exactly the one my grandmother bought new at about that time. Those GE's were a Pile o' junk in my opinion....but I'm partial to my '94 KA Superba. I love that the owner of that house you were in hasn't "upgraded" to S/S appliances. The kitchen looks nice like it is--timewarp!

GE wall oven

pcasa's profile picture
after searching locally and on ebay for years - I finally scored this GE Turquoise wall oven - it was on the curb for trash pick up in my hood - I saved it and it's now installed in the kitchen in my house in the country (working perfectly) I'm slowly changing everything to Turquoise

Good show, Drew

Thanks for sharing - I love to see these old kitchens still standing, as though a few years have passed. At least my sentimentalism is shared. You could create a picture book of vintage appliances and other that you have seen, I'm sure.

Missing power tower?

chetlaham's profile picture
I have a feeling that dishwasher isn't used since it looks the the power tower is missing. Did you offer them a new one?
