This is what I wish my sister would get.  She has an older plain white Wedgewood double oven of the dime-a-dozen 40's design, a look that I've always found frumpy and pedestrian.  Her kitchen is more modern and the later style OK&Ms such as the one above are still built like tanks but have much more pleasing lines and overall design.  I hope I can talk her into upgrading someday.

O&M was so Tappan-y by this time. Many of the controls, burners and general feel of this O&M are like my grandmother's Tappan, bought in 61-62. Hellavuh good (gas) range!

The burners

Are all Tappan, these have a continuous slot instead of holes in the burner head, the flame comes out in a film and is one of the best burners ever made in my opinion.

I am chiming in out of curiosity of these burners....

Having an open-burner cooktop, and having had a few sealed burner stoves in the past.. How would these burners compare to my open burner or a .. sealed burner on a wolf stove/cooktop/rangetop?

I mean I'm sure the btus wouldn't be there, my current cooktop has 22k btu burners... but as far as even-ness?

Say the common factor among all of the burners would be a 10" stainless tri-ply cladded skillet.

I hear many customers say they preferred their older *vintage* gas stoves they grew up with vs their new wolf ranges.

Heavy cast iron burners and grates, used in old stoves, hold heat better once they are hot longer than aluminum, or lighter steel or lighter cast iron. It took fewer btu's to maintain the heat under the pan.
Wolf builds a darn good range. I've not heard any complaints. They also cost upwards of 5 grand. Blue Star and DCS, and Viking also make good ranges.
They are also much easier to clean that say an old Garland commercial range you might still see in use in a restaurant kitchen.
