Hard to tell from the pictures,but looks to be lightly used. Did Amana have anything to do with the design of the glass touch pads?

I bought this range New in 1975 and loved every moment I owned it. Learning to stir in square corningware sauce pans and not send it shooting out the corner like a fluke, not so much.

That's right Patrick! 


It's the first time I see one for sale! We didn't get these in Canada (the nicest ones we got then were the self-cleaning Custom Deluxe Cermatop with regular controls).


I wish the asking price was a bit less (and I wonder how much it would cost to have it shipped in upper NY state or Vermont!).

Make an offer of about half the asking price, since most of the parts are made of "unobtanium".

....Has taken very good care of that Ceramatop. Most smooth-top ranges of that era were pretty disgusting-looking after a few years, due to poor maintenance.

Touch Controls:

It seems at least possible that Amana might have made the touch controls for Frigidaire; Amana supplied them with microwave ovens for a while. And the controls have the Touchmatic "look." The Frigidaire RCM-10 microwave was "their" version of the Touchmatic.

I might be wrong as I wasn't around when this happened but Frigidaire introduced the Touch-N-Cook ranges in 1973 before Amana introduced their Touchmatic microwaves (about two years later). They do look similar and they both use touch-sensitive glass panels but I don't know how closely they're related. I think the circuits for Frigidaire Touch-N-Cook ranges were made by American Micro-Systems while those on Amana microwave ovens are made by Texas Instruments.

Amana did supply Frigidaire their later Touch-N-Cook RCM-9 and RCM-10 microwaves which shared their internals with Amana Touchmatic microwaves. The fonts of the numbers on the Frigidaire Touch-N-Cook Microwave panels matched those of other Frigidaire Touch-N-Cook ranges, ovens and cooktops while Amana had slightly different, more rounded numbers on theirs.

Cory or Ben could probably tell more about that...

I'm wondering if someone got it or if the seller just removed the ad. I did send a message to the seller while the ad was active but I didn't get a reply...


I searched the local craigslist ads and it seems gone!  But here's the link to a large SxS Custom Imperial fridge in the same area.

Nice 'fridge! Is that Coppertone, or Poppy?

It almost seems to be coppertone on the pic above but I think it's Poppy.

By then, Frigidaire had the much darker "Colonial Copper" which was more dark brown than copper... When they removed the shading on the edges in the late seventies, they renamed this color "Coffee" (and "Poppy" was renamed "Terra Cotta").
