Cool! A 1950's stove? What's the make/model?

How about going for this instead of the KitchenAid...

Aga Store: 44" Legacy Dual Fuel Range

Oh wait it is 44" wide... silly me.

I don't believe I've heard of a Caloric stove
How much wood did it go through each year, Frank?

SO works for a family that has an AGA stove. It's needed a part since October - still waiting.

We went to Lowe's tonight to look at the KA Stove/range. It was okay. It is NOT my beloved Caloric. Frank had someone come visit for about $80 to tell us that he could not do anything for the stove. I suppose that we could get a new stove....with new cabinets, new back splash....counter tops would be needed....may as well get rid of the ugly flooring too.

Or...maybe....we could find parts for the Caloric and refurbish it. On the plus side, the electrical parts work perfectly. The rest....just shelves and screws...a few tubes...

The stove is really awesome. And it does fit that spot perfectly. Has anyone ever tried to refurbish a stove? Seriously, after hearing about the guy who showed up here, I think we could do better....

Here is a picture of a stove like mine. The bar along the back in the top is a light that casts a magical light in my kitchen....

I really want to keep my stove....

I know, I had an old one like that in the rental in Hamilton, MT...it was great...then Someone decided she had to go to nursing school in Missoula

But, your needing a new or used/different stove lets me break out my daydreams.
