I picked this up over the past weekend for a 30 pack of Miller Lite!! Does anyone have any information on it? I've looked on line every which way I know and cannot even find a pic. The story is: a couple in my neighborhood bought a 1930's craftsman about 2 months ago. They wanted to update the kitchen and did not want the stove...they wanted it out of their garage!! I do not think the griddle/roater side has even been used as well as the brioler. The wife said she used the stove top and oven before they moved it out of the kitchen and everything worked fine. Oven was as clean as clean could be. I've hired a couple of beefy guys to come on Friday and move my old 1941 Roper out to the garage and move the "new" stove in. Any information would be appreciated. BTW: if anyone wants the 41 please speak up..it's free to anyone in the group that wants it..it was given to me as a gift 17 years ago and I do not want it going to the crusher; for the time being it will live covered in the garage. Thank in advance!!!/mark

Mark, looking forward to more pics after the beefy guys get this thang inside.  Has me very curious as how this all worked.

Will do! My "college hunks moving" are going to give me a 2 hour notice before arriving...ha! The pic shows the roaster, it changes out with a griddle. There's a knob with temp setting on the front. From the looks of the burner it's never been lit. Appliance plug works so does the work and oven light. Clock and timer dead. After the holidays I'm sure there's someone that can give me some guidance as to taking it out and where to send it for repair. I found it on Craigslist...guy was asking 150.00..after we text a few times he said he'd take a 12 pack for it if I'd make it go away over the weekend. I took him a 30 pack and he helped me get it on the truck. The "hunks" are charging 120.00 to change the stoves out.. I m good with that. I'm not 30 anymore...lol!

Somewhere I have a ad for it..

I think 55, it is a surface oven/roaster combination, it will bake as well as roast and there may have been a griddle for it also.
