So I saw this on CL for $20 and couldn't pass it up. I picked it up and did a bit of cleaning and it shined up like new. Appears to be low use, maybe in a summer kitchen or something.

I searched through some old ads and found this sold in Canada around 67-68 so it would still be a true Westinghouse if I'm not mistaken.

They almost always put 24" stoves in apartment buildings in Canada up until the 80's so it was very common to see this size around. However they were typically BOL. This one is a bit different in that it is quite well appointed with features: Automatic oven, timer, clock, panel & oven light, timed outlet, panel glass, oven gasket and even a rotisserie! Never seen an apartment size stove quite like this.

All the parts were there including the broiling pan and the rotisserie parts. I plugged it in to 120V and everything I could test appears to work (this is the first time I've bought a used stove where the timer and clock actually work!).

I have to say that this also appears to be a very well made and solid range. The attention to detail with the little Westinghouse logo on each element is a really a thing of the past.

Anyone seen anything like this before?

Looks like a great find, especially for $20.  Nice styling, too.

Congratulations! Awesome, unique little range in nearly-new condition. How refreshing the seller wasn't asking an astronomical price for it. $20 well spent.

Wow, and even a rotisserie...

What a find! A real TOL model! I love that it actually has a separate control for the rotisserie.  The knobs remind me of the ones used on Westinghouse washers.

 

Congratulations!

Nice to see it was saved rather than being scrapped.

Are all of the elements on Canadian electric stoves still individually fused and if so, are the fuses between the bottom of the oven liner and the top of the storage drawer opening?

 

Thanks.

Nice!

Most smaller ranges that I have encountered do not have such a deep feature set. Really lovely.

Fused elements on Canadian ranges

Tom, that got phased out in the 1990s here.  I guess the cost of including this and the fact that Canadian-built ranges were finding their way to the US market where fusing wasn't a requirement were the key factors.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys!

Really didn't need it for anything but it was so unique, in great shape and I knew it probably wouldn't sell, even at that low price so I took it. Now I'm really glad I did. Haven't had the opportunity to connect it to full power yet so I can test the oven and burners but based on the condition of everything else, I have a good feeling all will be well.

I've read a few posts about Westinghouse ranges and it sounds like the consensus is that they used to make a pretty good stove. I'm thinking this one will not be an exception.

The fuses on this guy are behind the white panel on control panel. You unscrew the rings on the two canopy switches and the panel pops out for access to the fuses. My observations are the same as Paul's, haven't seen fuses on anything newer than at least 20 years.

Thanks for the fuse update!
