the oven

This range might be the reason why I chose to live in this apartment.

It's a circa 1955 40" double oven Wedgewood. The built in griddle is not to shabby for making pancakes on and the crumb catches make for an easy clean up.

When we first moved in the pilot lights were keeping the whole kitchen a good 20ยบ hotter than the rest of the flat and making our gas bill sky rocket. So we turned off half the stove but it can still be lit by matches.

Now if I could only sync the oven temp with the dial this would be my dream stove.
