Does anyone here have a vintage stove in their kitchen?

I really admire them. A lot.

I'm wondering how practical one would be though?

I adore this one:

If anyone here uses one I'd love to know what you like/dislike about it!

Nope. But I love Rachael rays! Haha

Actually now that I'm thinking. My great aunt bought a historic home to redo. And there was a olive green stove from the 70s in there. She used it for awhile. Gas and broiler was fine. But she couldn't fit certain cookie sheets or pizza stones from pampered chef in because it was so narrow. Idk if that's the norm or just what hers was?

sent from my iPhone. excuse all typos

My aunt had one even older than that for years. We were just talking about it and she misses that thing. Apparently once you get used to how it works, its awesome.

I think they're super cute.

They make vintage "looking" stoves that are actually brand new and work just as efficiently as other newer models. I would LOVE to get one, as well as an apron front sink and a vintage looking refrigerator with the rounded corners. *swoon*

Yep, that right there is what I want! Not necessarily in that color, I would love white or red. I love the aqua, but my DH would HATE it! (I used to have small plates in that color, though, with white bigger plates and light blue bowls. lol) I agree with it needed yellow accents in there. That, with a school house lights...*swoon* I also love the subway tile on the back splash. That's what I want to do in our next house.

I HATE HATE HATE HATE (did I mention I HATE) cleaning the stove top. It is such a colossal pain in the rear end to have to remove every coil and then the drip pan underneath and then wash those AND the cavity underneath the drip pans INSIDE the stove top. I flipping hate it.

My oven doesn't heat evenly and it costs me more to run my oven than it does to run my TV, washer, dryer, AND computer.... COMBINED.

I'm just biding my time until I can afford a new kitchen, with new appliances.
I have been reading a good bit and the way yours look, they are some of the ones to avoid. A few articles now are saying to go for ones made in the 50's as they work and look better than those in the 60's. Anything from the 60's to 80's just looks dated I think

Love the first one. Love it.

I would get a refurbished one and not just a true vintage stove. They are super inefficient.
Do you know the maker and year of yours?
