Updating vintage appliances
The compressor is recharged with R-12 blend refrigerant.The Bushwhacked economy has at least one upside: It has put crazy things that once seemed sane farther out of reach.Those sellers may be dreaming, but these stoves are like the 1950s Pontiacs still rolling around Havana, compared with the Hummers so many cooks purchased.Even if they have not been assiduously maintained from the beginning, vintage stoves are easily restored.
I just purchased a 1950s Norge refrigerator that I found on Craigslist for 0.We had already replaced our dishwasher with a Maytag stainless steel model.And I installed a Kenmore gas range with a stainless steel front, as well.of your appliances (except a range top), and just about anything else you can think of!
When my wife and I first read about stainless steel paint, we thought we’d give it a shot.
Ours was rebuilt inside and out by Antique Stove Heaven in Los Angeles and looked showroom-fresh when we uncrated it back in Manhattan.
