Forget your hankering for a modern Gaggenau or Viking, what could be better than vintage?? We found Dream Stoves while googling for stove pics and were almost immediately sold. These old stoves are beautiful and so well made that they last, last, last.
Dream Stoves specializes in stoves from the 1920's through 50's. They sell small stoves, unrestored stoves and whole kitchens. They have info on antique appliances and forums as well. This is a great resource. As for price: "our current pricing ranges from $2,500 - $15,000." They also restore, sell and ship stoves nationwide. All of the stoves on their site are sold on a first come, first served basis, and the work looks primo.
Paul, a reader who loves to cook and and likes vintage stoves, cautions: "The drawbacks to being a foodie with a stove like this. . . are twofold: First, regulating oven temperature (regulating stovetop temp is fairly elementary, no?). The controls of my oven are primitive to say the least. . .Also, it's not always easy to make cake icing properly if the ambient temp in the cooking area is really hot. . ." -maxwell (re-edited from November 2005 on AT-NY)
