Friends here had that oven. It was amazing. And when turned on, the temperature display lit up.

Not knowing about which Thermador was good or not - this LOOKS like a quality product and near TOL(?)

Do you think you could possibly put a few more buttons, switches and dials on one appliance? Bet it could cook up one heck of a meal! And both ovens are self-cleaning to boot. What more could you possibly want?

Those Units....

danemodsandy's profile picture
Bring up a lot of '80s memories of my stint as a cooking teacher. Both were the most desirable units of their kind at the time, with the result that people fell all over themselves to have them.

And you just had to have a SubZero fridge to go with them, plus a KitchenAid K5A mixer, plus a Cuisinart DLC-7 processor, plus Henckels knives, plus Calphalon cookware, plus, plus, plus....

If it all sounds like a horsepower race, that's because it was. I would be willing to bet that every fancy-dan kitchen so proudly showed off to me back then has been ripped out, and that every countertop appliance, knife and piece of cookware passed through Atlanta's thrift stores a long time ago. For most of the people I taught, it was never about cooking - it was about being trendy, with the latest and greatest of everything. Until, of course, fashions changed.

What I would worry about is if anything went wrong with the oven, parts may be NLA.

My mom has the single-oven version of that Thermador. It used to work well, but now has some problems. The microwave function quit working a while ago, and I think she mentioned recently that something else was wrong with it.


I should find a similar single-oven Thermador, for parts and/or replacing my mom's unit.

I believe the Thermador oven has been sold.  

John L. (combo52) is out of the country now, in Europe presumably learning how to love top-load H-axis washing and clipping a detergent bag to the lover's bridge in Paris.  When he returns in a week, he would be able to help you get your mom's oven working again and may have or know where to get parts you might need.
