You are correct...that's what's called having a keen eye. You'd be a good person to take along when buying a house or a used car.

Beautiful range B-60

That is Frigidaire's 1941 range. I saw this range in an old movie. It was in the young married couple's home. The right rear was Frigidaire's second surface unit and is the original design for the stove and the right front is the third. The left front is a Chromalox-type unit. The deep well would have open coils wound in a piece of ceramic, most likely.

After reading about the features, I stand corrected about the Thermizer element. It was the same sealed tube element as the other three surface units on the B-60.

This range was in the basement kitchen of a house for sale not far from here, I think I may have posted the house when it came up for sale. Perhaps my favorite range/oven handles of all time.

if the 3 replaced/mismatched burners all work and boil water, and that soupwell, it wouldn't bug me one bit at that stove's age, especially since those handles on the doors and drawers are


Oh, and that light, cantilevered out over the left side of the stove!!!! WOW WOW WOW

Frigidaire carried over those loopy handles into the 50s. My '54 has loops for oven door handles.
