...but at least it's not Pepto Pink. Certainly an attractive range. $400 doesn't seem too steep. In Menifee near Riverside in Southern California.

I thought that California was the hotbed of gas cooking.  What are all of these Beautiful TOL electric ranges doing there, besides being sold by flippers? I remember when these sat in the place of honor in Rich's appliance departments.

Oh my!

PINK is my FAVORITE color! The only 50s and 60s color I absolutely hate is yellow, I grew up with a yellow kitchen and it gags me everytime I see it, harvest and avocado are even worse!

Pink is not my fav but on that stove it is the best color imo. Only Sunny (pale) Yellow might top it...not even sure about that, pink is just perfect with the black.

I grew up with a yellow kitchen too. Our bathroom was also yellow. I remember my dad telling me that the new owners gutted the entire house after we moved. I love the pink, itís definitely my favorite retro appliance color.

I really love yellow, vintage GE or Frigidaire are my favorites. The last time I checked (years ago) Viking had a very nice pale yellow. I even had a yellow car back in the 70's.

California is the hot bed for gas appliances, but there are surprisingly a lot electric stoves as well as dryers here. I donít have a gas stove, but the rest of my house is gas which is kind of interesting. If I wanted to put a gas stove in, I would have to do a complete renovation of my kitchen, and where the current stove is out of reach of the nearest gas line/hook up. My stove is basically at a bar, and itís one of those Kenmore flat cook top stoves.

It's said that Americans currently have a love affair with gas. As a child, my Mom had a Wedgewood gas range, then a fancy-schmancy Gaffers & Sattler (a cheap tinny thing compared to the Wedgewood) that had 6 pilot lights. Every other house in the neighborhood had either free-standing or built-in electric. I don't think Mom could have ever adjusted to an electric stove, although her Sunbeam fry pan was her best friend.


For me who doesn't do much cooking in my current condition (one of my double ovens has never been used, the other one used twice) a smooth-top, easy to clean surface unit or stove would be just fine. Today, many homes seem to have both gas and electric for dryer hook up. The people who built my house ( Rabbi Silverman & Family) put a 220 plug under my gas cooktop and a gas hookup under my electric oven. Maybe they had plans for their Kosher Kitchen...2 dishwashers, 2 sinks, 2 ovens and 2 refrigerators. Oy Vey.
