A kitchen with old-world flavor can also have modern efficiencies. The dual-fuel, European-style, cast-iron range's cream-color enamel exterior positions it as a focal point for the entire kitchen. The 44-inch-wide range is topped by an oversize exhaust hood and fancy corbels that match the creamy glazed cabinetry.
Retro appliances, such as this reproduction range, allow kitchen remodelers a blast-from-the-past design option. This range faithfully copies the lines of a circa-1950s model while offering features a modern cook expects: sealed gas burners, a self-cleaning oven, an electronic timer, and a warming drawer.
It's hard to change the past, but that's exactly what happened to this vintage range. The 5-foot-wide restored model features an all-white porcelain exterior, eight gas burners, a center griddle, two baking ovens (on the upper left and right), one roasting oven (upper center), two broiler drawers (lower left and right), a utensil drawer (lower center), and pullout trays for crumbs and grease. The top panel includes an analog clock and a separate 60-second timer.
