Spotted these on eBay; I like the design of the cooktop. Bid is $30 at the moment.

This is the matching wall oven. Needs a good cleaning, but looks to be in decent shape.

And another poorly spliced together graphic. The controls seriously look very similar to Frigidaires of the same vintage.

Ok...I assume this is just a cooktop. The separate wall oven looks like it also has a rotisserie I think.

Love that the burner controls light up with different colors. Considering there isn't an oven under the burner's, what is the dial for on the right side of the clock setup? And what do the two knobs on the left side of the clock control? I see that the one on the right side of the clock is a minute timer.

And why in the world would have a need for "4" elec. sockets on the dash? I can understand maybe one or two...but four is a lil overkill...don'cha think?

These appear to be the "successor(s)"

to Hotpoints highend line that started in the midfifties, "customline" .

The sellers need to glimpse a bit closer at the word after "Custom" on both of them,
it is "crafted" not "crated". They have a still, well made early to midsixties look.
The timer on the cooktop is for at least one of the plug sockets. The knob on the
lower right is for controlling the temp of the "heatminder" type large burner.
The buttons are for the pan size . . . . .

Oops, knob not lower right;

midright, lower right buttons. . . .

Please don't apologize for the splices; they're wonderful and helpful.

Nice find--Thanks for sharing

The outlets allowed you to use plug in countertop appliances on both sides of the cooktop without having the cord stretching across possibly heated areas. In many kitchens, these outlets added additional 15 amp. outlets to the work area without having expensive rewiring done. When we picked up the 1950s Hotpoint TOL cooktop and double oven, the man told us that the first morning that the new kitchen was used, the wife discovered that she did not have the cooktop outlet for the coffee maker.

I have never seen a cook top like that before. Love the wall oven.

Hotpoint's thermostatic unit was called the Supermatic Unit.

I seriously like these (I especially love the control panel of the cooktop); if we didn't already have a '63 Frigidaire, I'd be tempted. At some point we are going to expand our kitchen and I'd love to do a separate oven and cooktop. $30 for each of these seems to be a reasonable price; they look like they have some serious heft to them. I hope they find a good home (where they'll be cleaned a little more regularly). :)

I'm glad my splices are helpful; I wish I had photoshop though.

Is your '63 Frigidaire a Custom Imperial?

Same oven as the double oven I used to have...

....except mine was coppertone. Sorry the only pic I have is this one with the panel lights on and all the other lights off! I will say that the removable teflon sides, bottom and back liner didn't make it much easier to clean. The splatters would find their way behind the back and sides and most of the oven had to be cleaned just as a regular oven WITHOUT teflon liners would have. Besides the racks to scrub, the removable rack guides had to be cleaned as well. Double the work! Also, the teflon didn't hold up well to the high heat of the oven - especially the top area of the side liners where the broiler element would cause the teflon to discolor and become ineffective.
When we moved into the 1967 home in 1970, all the user manuals were gone so I wrote to GE/Hotpoint and they sent a complete user manual for the oven free of charge.
I think we tried the "Rota-Grille" one time. Same with the "Roast Minder".
Those were the days (except I don't want to clean another oven again!)

They didn't sell and are relisted for a BIN price of $30 each, if anyone is interested.

The wall oven sold, but the cooktop and range hood are still available. Did someone here get the wall oven?
