How anyone

Could keep a range 59 years and never get a speck of grease on it is a mystery! Everything works but the clock and I'm going to see if I can get it to run, probably just stuck.

Nice indeed, Hans!  Congratulations on a great find!

Made these, The Infrarod Microtube was just Sears name for a Chromalox unit, the large unit is a Micro Rocket, 2700 watt.

Maybe it was in a vacation home someplace and they always ate out or a mother in law kitchen that was never used. Pretty stove. Let me know how it bakes.

The couple

I bought it from said it was in a house they bought from a older couple, in a basement kitchen.I think it was used as a second stove, but not used very much.

Very pretty range, Hans. I love the medallions in the center of the elements. I'll bet they'll look just as pretty years from now, the way you keep house :-) Keep us posted on how you like it.

The surface units

Are MUCH faster than the Frigidaire I have been using, I bet the oven wont be as good as the FD but very few are as good, time will tell, but It sure is pretty in my kitchen.7 heats are nice too,

Hans - it's beautiful!! How amazing that it is so spotless and the burners look like showroom new!! The clock may just need a drop of oil and a little nudge - enjoy this one!!!
