First off, let me welcome the new followers! It's great to have you here. I am humbled and pleased, so do make yourselves at home. I am not very good at responding to comments. I am working on that, so please bear with me.
Now for the news we've all been waiting for. . .
Ta da!! We bought the stove. The guy said he was told it worked but had not tested it. We decided to take a chance when he said to bring it back for a refund if it didn't work. Win win! Besides that, he was only asking $100 for it. The stove weighs hundreds of pounds but luckily we have a great neighbor that is always willing to help. After the guys got it out of the truck and into the garage, we (meaning Tim, not me) spent some time checking all the wiring out, switching the pigtail, and cleaning off all the spiders and "spooky stuff." I did help clean the drawers :)
For those of you who are new here, our house has a daylight basement, and in the basement are two single car garages and a one bedroom apartment which I call my studio. That is where my "canning kitchen" is. When we got the stove into the kitchen it fit beautifully. I was totally smitten. I can't believe I could get so excited about an old stove! It looks great and guess what - IT WORKS! The rear burner on the left is not working but Tim thinks he can fix it. Everything else works. I spent all day Sunday canning plums on it and it was awesome. There is room for two or three canners at one time.
The big surprise was the broiler pans - original - were still in the ovens. I was stunned.
The next three pictures are from the seller. This shows the griddle in the center.
When you remove the griddle you have a very large burner underneath.
You can raise this burner to the proper height to use for CANNING!
Be still my heart.....
Oh, and believe it or not. . .
The clock still works.
And so does the light :)
I have no excuses now. I best get busy filling up my pantry.
Next post will be all about firewood and big excavators, just so you know I don't always go on and on about kitchen stuff!
Thanks for stopping by,
