I miss the innovative designs of old stoves.


bell37 t1_jdydadw wrote

I miss the dual ovens. My parents had one and it was the best because you can have two different temperatures or have one oven run on broil while the other is in use for something else. I’m sure it was an energy hog and inefficient af but it was the most practical oven I have ever used before


BaconJacobs t1_jdyew9m wrote

They still make dual cavity home ovens btw


x-Mowens-x t1_jdym4jn wrote

For some reason houses don’t have them anymore.


gingerzombie2 t1_jdyolzy wrote

It's because getting a dual wall oven plus a cooktop is more than twice as much as just buying a stove. There are a few models of stoves with a split oven, but they are not very popular since the top one is very short and the bottom one is too short for taller needs (turkey, large dutch oven).


SarcasticOptimist t1_jdz0amm wrote

And for the price a combi oven would do a better job and is more versatile.

Having a toaster oven also helps do dual duty. Tbh I use mine more often than my full size range.

Probably for reporting heat, preheating remotely, notifications about finish times etc.

Most of them won't turn on remotely. You can get everything set and ready then you have to manually press the on button.

Marketers. It's weird I agree. Just picked one with good reviews from a reputable manufacturer.

And from my experience, will also last at least 10 years. My mom's old miele appliances were replaced because of power efficiency after 20 smth years, not because they broke down


bigbluethunder t1_je08xbt wrote

Most in-home dual ovens that I’ve seen have a bottom oven that is the size of most peoples’ warming drawer (perfect for baking, making casseroles, heating up sides or apps, etc) while the other oven is still full-size.


KadenKraw t1_je22m74 wrote

You ever see the dual flex space ovens? I wonder if they are any good.


TheSessionMan t1_jdyrx26 wrote

Cause you essentially need to buy three things (two ovens and a range) instead of one, a range oven combo


x-Mowens-x t1_jdys13h wrote

But that was always the case?


TheSessionMan t1_jdysarz wrote

Pretty much, yeah. You'll only really see the dual oven plus range in houses that belonged to more upper class folk. You still see them in rich people's modern houses today at a much higher frequency than in working class homes


goldentamarindo t1_jdzd3dd wrote

Yes, my parents’ house has two ovens stacked vertically and recessed into the wall, and a separate range. It’s a larger mid-century house. There’s also a brick oven in the backyard. The previous owners were a Greek family that did a lot of cooking and would roast goats in the backyard.


nalleball t1_jdz0ip0 wrote

Electrolux still sells a stove with two oven zones combo. The drawback is that you have two smaller oven zones instead of one large. I like it you can cook two different things at different temperatures.


Intrepid00 t1_je0c1fx wrote

I could get an induction range for $1.2k last spring with a single oven or I could get a dual oven for $3.5-4.5k that was induction. Making them dual just really drives up the price.


mrsbebe t1_jdztlmo wrote

Homes definitely have them. I have one that was installed in I think 2016? It's a double oven range. I'm a former interior designer that specialized in kitchens and we put double ovens in kitchens almost as a standard.


x-Mowens-x t1_jdzu147 wrote

Sorry, I misspoke. I know they still exist. Haha. I just meant when I was looking for houses they were few and far between. When I was growing up, they seemed to be the rule.


mrsbebe t1_jdzuck1 wrote

Yeah I know what you mean. To be fair, the kitchens I designed were luxury so probably out of the price range of most people. Certainly out of my price range. My I do like my double oven range! The top oven is smaller but when I have hosted thanksgiving it is plenty of space to do what we need to do and it's an LG so it's not like it was expensive as far as ranges go


frankchester t1_jdzuis7 wrote

Really? Double ovens fairly popular in the UK, if you are in a moderately large family home (which is probably equivalent to a moderately small American family home). Or a range cooler is still popular.


BaconJacobs t1_je001av wrote

Dunno. I worked at GE Appliances for 5 years in gas cooking products and our freestanding and slide in double ovens were a huge seller.

I guess some people either want the silly little storage drawer under their oven or they don't know they exist.


x-Mowens-x t1_je00d44 wrote

Interesting. Considering when I was looking at houses no one had stand alone double ovens!!!

They existed, but were not common.


Chicken_Hairs t1_jdyh7z9 wrote

My aunt recently renovated her house, tearing out an unneeded bedroom so she could expand the kitchen. A dual oven as well as a 30" pizza oven was installed.


10Bens t1_jdyhp30 wrote

I wonder if maybe they weren't energy hogs, and maybe didn't get up to heat fast enough to keep up with the competition.

HalfPint1885 t1_jdxwioa wrote

One of these was in our house when I was a kid, although I think it was green or orange, I can't remember exactly. My only memory of the stove is that one day, when my mom had food cooking on the stove top and food in the oven, she opened the hot oven door and it came off the hinges, for some unknown reason. The door was hot so she couldn't catch it, but luckily she guided it down to the stovetop and it missed whatever she was cooking on the burners. I feel like someone repaired the door and we continued to use it for a short while, but it scared my mom so badly that we got a different stove shortly after that.


MrKimBonesAlexJones t1_jdxtcsa wrote

It is beautiful, though I’d imagine trying to open the oven while the burners are in use would be quite a pain


rt80186 t1_jdyef4j wrote

It is a bit of an ergonomic disaster. Heavy hot items in the oven are a high reach over a hot stove. I’m not saying it sent everyone to the burn ward, but it did send more grandmas to the hospital compared to more conventional ovens.

lynivvinyl t1_jdxxw7h wrote

My grandmother had the same one in a really awesome color green and it still worked perfectly before she sold her house. The whole eye top slides in to give you room that her kitchen definitely did not need. She also had an old refrigerator that still worked that looked like the Bonnet of a car and was either made by GE or maybe even a car manufacturing company.


AlfredoVignale t1_jdy3eej wrote

My grandmother had one….and my cousin took over her place. Then he found a new old stock unit in a basement while doing some hvac work…..and now he has a fancy new old stock stove.


LuckyTheLurker t1_jdy9an1 wrote

Love that stove's aesthetic. I would love one of those for my condo's compact kitchen.

I have a 1961 GE range in pink. with matching wall oven.

I spent way more than I needed to get a retro rebuild of a 1960's GE Fridge and color matched the stove and oven.

I rebuilt the range and wall oven myself, new wiring, elements, insulation and rebuilt clock. The clock was the most expensive part. I did a conversion on one burner for the range to an induction burner for fast tea kettle heating. Kettle now goes from tap temp to whistling in about 4 minutes.

I have the single oven Frigidaire Flair in my house, so narrower but the same model, just without the little oven door on the left. Mine has a steel cabinet underneath that was made for it, so it can be free standing, this one appears to have been built right into the kitchen cabinetry, which is cool.


Mine still works but it has some issues, luckily there's a community of people who love these particular ovens/stoves so parts and repair info is still available, so hopefully I'll never need to replace it.

I had a Tappan stainless steel side by side oven with 4 burners on the pull out portion and a full length cutting board. It was marvelous.

Weird to see this, for me. My mom's (old) house has this exact oven/stove. I grew up on it, and I use it a few times a year now when I visit for holidays and the like. It's a perfectly serviceable appliance, outlasting every other kitchen appliance that house came with several times over. We always talk about the day it inevitably dies, though, because I can't imagine it will be repairable, and my mom has no intention of trying to replace it with something new, either (she's not much for cooking).

Like no offense to this oven, but regardless of if it was working or not, if I had it, I'd be looking to replace it. I can't even imagine cooking with that, compared to the modern appliances I have. The ergonomics look terrible, I'm assuming cleaning is a pain in the ass, those coils are the worst thing in the world to cook with, temperature control is likely not great, energy use is high, etc etc

  • Steam cycle for baking and cleaning

  • Programmable baking/broiling cycle

  • Preheating which doesn't take an eternity

  • Energy efficiency

  • More compact size for the same interior space as older appliances means more storage space in my kitchen

My mother in law has one of these. It's the coolest looking thing, but for sure it's not as great as new ranges. I think the biggest thing is how long they last with little maintenance.

Sure, if you were to take both "new" out of the box and compare, than basically any new range would smoke this thing across the board (except maybe style points). That said, I think this would last longer at that same level than a modern range.

I have no idea where everyone here is praising that design, that's one of the worst engineered ergonomic designs I've ever seen for stove / oven.

So if you have two or even one pot on the back burners, you can't get to the oven. If you have a pot frying pan on the front burners you're likely to do some serious damage to yourself if you reach into those ovens. In either case you're reaching over very hot surface to get to anything in the oven. Even in that picture it looks like you have to take the tea kettle off in order to open up the right oven.

I don't get it. I don't understand what it saves you in space either, except I guess you get cabinets underneath the stove top. The whole thing looks like a horrible user experience, and incredibly unsafe.
