      If you ever get a chance to own one snap it up.

      My mother's was purchased in 1938 just after she was married.

      She finally took in out in the early 1970s when she redid her kitchen. Big mistake. She had to put in heavier air conditioning because the new stove was so very much hotter. The excellent insulation Chambers  was the reason for it being cooler.

      I got that stove used it and when I moved out of state gave it to my father in law to use.

      When they redid their kitchen  they gave the stove away to a poor person  down the road rather than ask me what I wanted to do with it. I think it is still being used. Even  then unrestored it was worth more than a lot of new stoves. Restored it would have been worth several thousand. My father in law had no idea.

      I once saw a Chambers like my mother's in the home of a architect who had the most beautiful modern kitchen.  It was spectacular.
