Speechless Sundays - A Blast from the Past

Speechless Sundays - A Blast from the Past

This could probably be a Throwback Thursday post but, I snapped this today while going through the JFK Library & Museum and had to share it. My grandmothers had these oven/ranges (all-in-one) and I thought they were the coolest appliances ever...and still do!


Frigidaire Flair from the 1960's* Who remembers the Frigidaire Flair from the 1960's? The top glass raised for the oven and the black button in the middle of the silver handle was depressed to pull out, revealing the cooktop eyes. The white cabinets below were solely for storage. 


Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Now that is a blast from the past ... I do not remember the oven/range. 

Is it possible I am not old enough to remember or just too old and I forgot? 

I sure do remember many of the appliances.

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS .  I do not remember this.  How did they cook without any burners?

OMG, you guys are making me feel old! This is circa 1960's, Kathleen Daniels!

Now, both of my maw maws were big cooks - and had great kitchens - maybe that's why I was exposed to it, Kathy Streib! And, maybe you're not as old as you think! LOL

The burners were a slide-out drawer (the silver 'drawer' handle had a push button that opened the drawer, revealing the burners, Lynnea Miller!

The exhibit was a fun one Debe Maxwell, CRS , especially since it contains items older than I...that's getting harder to find each and every day (LOL)

Dear Debe,

Very cool! Remember the percolator too.

I love to see the old kitchen equipment. This one is cool.

Somehow, my family bypassed that generation of ranges, Debe.  It's pretty darn cool.  I remember the first home I owned, had turquoise built in appliances.  I kind of miss them.

Every older home I have ever sold with one of these had them still working. I don't think they ever break down.

That rig was on a QA about a year ago . . . it's from 1960, I believe. So cool!

This blast from the past reminds me how far we have come. Just think of all the new gadgets we have and we still want more.

Weren't these avocado? I do reall the Frigidaire and later GE stoves and routinely encounter them in older homes. I sold one house in South Land Park with an original stove that looked like it had never been used, it was so immaculate. Who could tear out that precious relic?

Ron and Alexandra, every once in a while one of these shows up in a listing for sale!

Something similar to this is making a comeback.  Toaster oven, griddle and coffee maker all in one.  Seems messy, but there is a market for it.
