Maybe it's our habit of always living in older apartments or just our Mid-Century Modern sensibilities, but we love the aesthetics of a retro stove, and know we're not alone! Encompassing a number of styles and ages, retro stoves are unique and fun. Do you think they're charming or too old-fashioned? Most of the retro stoves we've had the pleasure to cook on have been retro because the apartment itself was old---meaning they didn't always work the best. Speaking to foodies, although retro stoves are lovely to look at, they don't always regulate temperature too well. Of course, you can have a older stove revamped to work better. And, some people out there prefer a more modern, stream-lined, state-of-the-art stove. What kind of stove do you have? If you've got a retro stove, what are your favorite things about it or your complaints? Do you think retro stoves are old-fashioned and only use newer stoves for your cooking needs? Let us know about your retro stove love! Apartment Therapy retro stove posts and resources: Something Old: Vintage Stoves AT Marketplace: Dream Stoves Good Questions: Who Buys Vintage Stoves?
