Well I finally found a stove that I am looking for, and, in lovely brown!

Are any of our members close to Ottawa? I e-mailed the seller a couple days ago asking if they would consider shipping over to Hamilton, Ontario, but I have not heard back.

I just can't take a road trip right now...I wish they would communicate so we could hammer out some details.

Anyway, here are some pictures and a link to the Kijiji ad.

Guy, I am not THAT far from Ottawa and could pick this up for you; trouble is that it will have to be after June 18th. We could then figure out shipping or pick up from the house in St-Liboire (near St-Hyacinthe) in Québec.

The oven!

I am wondering if that is rust or just schmutz........

That's super cool. I presume these were only in Canada, because I've never seen one in the US? It seems to have an automatic oven too!

I am having trouble seeing the advantage of this when you could do the same functions with countertop appliances, but you found what you wanted so congratulations.

Nice Find Guy!

Hope you got everything worked out for this, wish you luck if not.


It looks awesome! and what a cool little appliance... I've been looking for something like this too.


I can see the usefulness in it because of my own situation. I live in a renovated home in an efficiency basement apartment. There is only one 220v outlet available, The outlet is in an area set up for a washer and dryer so of course I'm using it for my Maytag set.


The home owners won't allow the installation of additional 220v outlets (they say they are at max allowance for the household) The house is all electric (heat etc.) and they won't allow a gas tank installed outside (there is no local natural gas line as it's a rural area) for a gas oven... to be fair I wouldn't want a gas oven in a basement anyway.


All things considered, it limits possibilities. Currently I have a hot plate as a stove top and a large toaster oven that serves my baking needs but something like this, that can run on 110v and is a self contained unit that just happens to have a ton of vintage appeal, would be awesome to find.


Wondering if America had made a similar version back in the day.


If you do get this beauty later on, would you mind sharing the manufacturer/model info?

Have you thought of using a Westinghouse Roaster oven for larger baking tasks? Is the 240 volt outlet accessible behind the dryer? You could make an 240 volt extension cord from a 6 ft dryer cord if the outlet is located near the floor so that you could easily connect different appliances as needed. If  there's room, you could use a 240 volt cooking appliance on or near the dryer.  You could use an apartment size range, an electric cooktop, a really powerful induction unit or a builtin oven near the outlet.

Thanks Cory

The plan for this is a "rec room" kitchenette. Like you said, I don't want to have to install another 220v line, or a gas hookup, for something that will only get used on occasion.

I'm quite sure that the manufacturer is Danby, so who knows who really made it...


Post# 1035322 , Reply# 8   6/14/2019 at 06:33 by Tomturbomatic (Beltsville, MD)        

So what is the limit on the number of parts of this that can be switched on? I guess that there is a 500 watt surface unit and a 1000 or 1100 watt unit so probably both of them could be on at the same time on a 20 amp circuit. The oven probably has to be operated by itself.


I remember seeing information about a 120 volt oven in the 50s and it had an aluminum liner, possibly to improve browning and to throw more heat back to the food.


For a possible source of a 120 volt stove, anyone interested might check out RV equipment catalogs.

Appreciate it !

Guy...   Thanks for the manufacturer info. In the US, Danby is well known for compact size appliances, like mini fridges, kegerators and apartment sized ranges. So that makes sense considering the compact size of yours.


Good luck on the rec room project.


Tom... Thank you for the tips. I never thought about trying to use the single 240 outlet as an interchangeable option, worth a try to rearrange things and get the outlet accessible. The only downside being my own laziness, all that plugging and unplugging :)


I have an oversized toaster oven so it does the job, but to be honest I'm not exactly a baker anyway. haha. I use my Air Fryer and Microwave more often than the hotplate or toaster oven.. but I've always thought I'd like the real thing (cooking stove) in there.

Here in the US you can get (but they are much less common than in the UK) a toaster oven with two solid burners on top. The toaster oven has a convection bake, convection roast and a rotisserie.

But at least on the one I saw, you can only either use the oven, or one or two of the top burners at a time. Also, the burners don't seem to have a temperature dial, they're either on or off. I assume you'd just use the smaller lower wattage burner for cooking at lower temps, and the larger for higher temps. I've noticed a similar on/off only setup on some older double hot plates.

The ones I've seen are typically the Avanti brand, which also sells compact appliances, and I think I've also seen them under the Breville name.

Being the UK uses 240V service, they probably have more flexibility as far as using the oven and hotplates at the same time.

You would only have to get the outlet accessible once and that would be to plug the 6 foot extension into it. You make the extension by buying a 6 ft. dryer cord and cutting the loops off the end. Then you buy another dryer outlet and wire the three conductors (or 4 depending on your code) into the dryer outlet. Once that is plugged in, you have what you need up above the dryer  so you can connect the dryer or any other 240 volt appliance into it--easy peasy. Have fun!
