After a year at the Tulsa Stove Hospital, my beloved 1948 Chambers is home- top rechromed, all cleaned up and purty!

Our air conditioning is unfortunately not working, otherwise I would be cooking right now!

No way. This is the sherman tank of stoves. You can cook with the gas turned off- the insulation is that good. It will hold its heat for hours once it is heated up. And it has a tilt up broiler. And a thermowell, which you can bake in or use as a crock pot.

She weighs 550 lbs. And she will last another 60 years easy. By then I'll be 105, so I might be ready to give her up.

Oh, children- Stovelist.com. It's my porn. (other than eBay and vintage fabrics, my other weakness) These stoves last forever and there are a whole lot of them out there. Like sewing machines, you just gotta keep your eyes peeled. Craiglist is where I found this baby. Stovelist is also fabulous.

Love your stove! And I had that set of pots. Still have some of them with turquoise lids. Paid $40.00 for them in 1961.
