    Indeed, rehabbing the appearance of 100-y.o. ranges is trendy. I see those old gas ranges, complete with bread-warmer, in yuppie homes.

    Now, when I lived in a place with such a stove, I didn't realize you needed to light the oven with a match, no pilot. Almost blew up the neighborhood.

      I have a '50's vintage Elna that has to be oiled with machine oil. It's a dream!
