The master oven is self-cleaning(P-7), the left-front burner is a Sensi-Temp unit and there is a fluorescent worklight.

It's newer - the lack of convenience outlets pegs it at about 1976 or so.

But it's otherwise pretty much the same as the earlier ones with the convenience outlets. It is GE-built; they hadn't contracted their little alliance with WCI yet.

For $50, I would run to get it so fast I'd blow out a sneaker. For that price, fixing a problem or two is nothing.

I vote yesyesohHELLyes.

Eh Bien!

If you want the convenience outlets (and I don't blame you one little bit), then it was not perfect for you and therefore probably not Meant to Be.

And at $50, I am not even the tiniest bit surprised someone snatched it up within nanoseconds.

Donald's aversion to Coppertone aside, the color shows fingerprints worse than stainless steel, which would hardly seem possible, but it's true.

Years ago when a job transfer landed me in Chattanooga for a couple of years, I bought some used Coppertone majors.

Could. Not. WAIT. to get rid of them. It was worse than owning a black car.

LOL! Sandy -no need to explain. I would get lots of fingerprints on it, too. I like the color, though for me, the color interest would wear sooner than later. :-)

What was most painful about the experience was that I thought I really, really wanted them. I grew up with mostly White appliances in my immediate and extended family, except for our resident glamour girl, my second cousin's wife Betty Ann, who had all Turquoise Westy majors in the kitchen and Turquoise Lady Ks in the basement. Colored appliances were way uptown to me.

I'd also grown up seeing Coppertone appliances on TV shows for years. Hazel had them some years, so did The Donna Reed Show. Even up into the '70s, The Mary Tyler Moore Show had them in Mary's second, high-rise apartment.

When I got some, it was the biggest gap between desire and reality I'd ever had. Well, at least until I met a guy named Mike....

That IS

In nice shape, but I never really liked that backsplash being black, my real preference is still a pushbutton range, but that is not set in stone.

Scranton Range:

Not a bad range at all. These lacked the Sensi-Temp, the meat probe thermometer, the griddle and rotisserie, but they did have P*7, two ovens and the two-large, two-small burner configuration.

And they were GE-built, no WCI involvement.

Sandy - yes, similar experiences with me and clothes - look great on the racks, try them on, and what was I thinking? :-) You at least have enjoyed a variety of nice appliances.

Hans - I'll keep an eye out, sharing your energy for the P7 in the form you're looking for - I think Launderess mentioned not liking CL at times, or preferring ebay or other selling sources...because CL seems to disappoint unless the posting is recent...and even then, it can go in a flash(happened to me with stereos).
