Anyone else think that range color is kind of a metallic or silver look? too bad they're wanting to get rid of it. That could still look very ice with today's black & SS look. And no electronics, self-cleaning oven. Too bad it's not a slide-in, I might spring for it myself!!!

My neighbor's sister has an earlier version of that Hotpoint range. Hers is Coppertone, and the top is stainless steel or brushed chrome.

They may have inadvertently tried the dishwasher. ;-)

why replace such NICE kitchen equipment

I can see a "green" argument for replacing an old refrigerator -- at least when one looks only at electricity usage. I saw a noticeable drop in my electricity bill when I replaced a 1966 side-by-side with a 2001. The '66 had a heated butter compartment, and heated gasket sealing surfaces to prevent condensation and mildew. I'm sure its compressor was also less efficient.


On the other hand, the '66 was still working (after I'd fixed the icemaker). The 2001 developed various problems, which I fixed, until it developed a noisy compressor shut-off last year -- both an annoyance and potentially a sign of future compressor failure. So, I bought a 2013 GE Cafe french door model (beautiful, BTW) and moved the 2001 to the basement as a back-up fridge.


Knowing what I know now about old appliances, I might have hung on to the '66, and just eaten the higher electrical bills. OTOH, I do really like the new (2013) fridge.

Quite a few years ago, a friend of mine bought a condo with this dishwasher, in white, and asked me to come check it out.  Turned it on, running fine.  "That can't be, LISTEN to it!"  Yes.  That's normal sound level for this machine.  


Hotpoint always had nicely made drop-in ranges.  The SS tops were very easy to care for, and to restore to cleanliness later if some didn't bother to care for them.  I don't think I ever saw one with a self-clean oven, their popularity faded quite a bit by the end of the 70's.

This Frigidaire probably already had hot gas mullion heaters, some models had them since the early seventies. I've seen some with an "energy saver" switch which I thought was for electric mullion heaters but I'm not so sure about that. I lack some knowledge on these fridges since they are very rare in Canada. Just a few were imported in the late seventies before GM sold Frigidaire to WCI.

The Radarange is an RR-9. Very cool, and it's one you don't see too often.
