Steel City Big Pour

August 28 - September 3, 2015

Greetings Reuse Fans,

CJ is amassing a wide range (pun intended) of stove brands from the 1950s: Roper, Frigidaire, Tappan, Norge, Vesta, and Kenmore. Some of these vintage appliances could use some restoration, but for the industrious soul they can yield a reliable appliance that is well insulated, provides good heat retention and is easy to repair. The bigger challenge appears to be cleaning them up after years of use.

There are some very cool features on these stoves. Check out the picture on the right of the inside of a Roper Bakemaster; that baking time chart is just too cool! If you are interested in taking on a challenging but rewarding DIY project, one of the stoves in our inventory may be for you. If you'd like a better understanding of how to restore an old stove like this, check out this site. It covers everything from restoring the finish to getting the clock ticking again! We have also reduced the prices of all our retro stoves by $40 to make the leap to restoring one of these classics a little easier. We'll keep an ear out for your success stories! -- Mike Gable, Executive Director
