Phoenix qualifies as a big city, so people are beating a path to this seller's door, right?

 

Personally, I think the seller needs (new) glasses.  He's seeing too many zeros.

2000 for a kitchenette?!!

A bit ridiculous if you ask me. For one thing, this isn't a full kitchen of the type GE made, it's a cheaply built kitchenette for efficiency apartments and motels.

500 seems closer to reality, and that would be if it was all disconnected and ready to move. Even at that price, I can't think of anyone who would want something like this for their main kitchen unit.

All you need is a step stool and a portable dishwasher and you can "kitchenate."

I wonder if the shelf and the paper towel holder are included in the STEEP price. Actually, if the whole top is porcelain, it is a much more expensive piece, although not necessarily a more durable surface, than the usual little unit kitchens with a thin gauge low quality stainless steel top.

Nothing cheap about Dwyer - neither price nor quality. That top is a one-piece porcelain top. Dwyer units were first quality (I say "were" - remembering back to the days of the annual Sweets Catalogs, they still are as far as I know). Dwyer was the brand that others would always claim to be "just as good as" Dwyer.

Having said that, I agree that 2 grand is a bit steep. Many times I've thought about designing a home with this type of kitchen. The whole she-bang in one swell foop.

I could see something like this in a mother-in-law suite, assuming of course that your MIL wouldn't be insulted at having to use something this old.

Why does the stove only have 3 burners when there is room for a forth?That space on the cooktop looks weird!

Code.....

.... enforcement would have a field day with the L. rear burner so close to the wall, if reinstalled like the picture.

I think out of touch with reality and maybe a bit napoleon syndrome. Those sell all around Dallas for $100-$250 in very good to excellent condition. Does he know that this is a bad economy and people won't pay that unless they are as out of their mind as he is?

Don't mention the asbestos that is in that oven OSHA would shut him down if they knew.

Very Rare Find....

....With those Dwyer wall cabinets, which were a seldom-ordered option. Still not $2000 worth, though.
