I am hoping anyone can tell me anything about this oven or what it's worth. It's a Suburban. I've haven't been able to find out much except for an advertisement from the 50s.

They were from a manufacturer in Tennessee. They seemed to make smallish wall ovens and cooktops; fitting well into the smaller kitchens of the 1950s.

I know there's a propane service named "Suburban" but don't know if there's any connection to this make of oven.

Suburban Propane sold their brand of gas appliances but I dont know who made them. My cousin bought a house and our local dealer installed a Suburban gas range.

As you can see by looking at this electric oven, Samuels Stamping and Enameling used as many similar parts as they could between their gas and electric ovens. What was the broiler compartment in the gas oven was a second oven in the electric models.

Suburban Wall Ovens

They weren't great ovens or cook-tops for that matter, as Tom mentioned they were more into gas but built it as an electric oven as an afterthought.

This one would not have a broiler in the lower oven and as a result probably would not brown foods well.

This oven would have little practical or monetary value unless you liked it for its looks and did not intend on using it much.

One of my neighbors had a Suburban gas wall oven & cooktop in Brushed Chrome at their old house, which was built around 1956. They've rented the house out since moving down the street from me, and replaced those appliances about 10 years ago.
