1950's kitchen

Mid-Century Modern Kitchen, built circa 1955. Tappan Stove "Fabulous 400"

 

She's a beautiful stove and works as pretty well. The retractable range is fantastic-nobody gets to see it when it's dirty! When expanded, the butcher block part can be folded down to a 90 degree angle for easier access to the burners. The oven is small compared to modern stoves but it never a problem, having two separate ovens is great though!

 

Unfortunately, the large burner doesn't work because replacement parts are hard to come by and we haven't had much success with them. Also lost to the years are one of the electrical outlets, the Rotisserie and the clock - but that's ok.
