• 1960 countertop-height Hotpoint oven with hideaway fold-down electric range

    3E23Kc3N45Gd5O55F1d4b46cbda96013d1553Many thanks to reader Jason, who continues to hunt down and share all manner of awesome vintage stoves. Are you watching all the postings on our Facebook page? That’s where he posts them, real-time. This one is particularly special: It’s a 1960 Hotpoint oven that sits at counter top height — and tucked into its side, a fold-down electric range top.

    Thanks to craigslist seller Nick for permission to archive these photos here. Yes, “archive”, because the unit has found a new home.

    1. I was just about to email you about the stove at this estate sale, and saw this post. Someone in the DC area might want to grab this beauty (a Flair?). See images 32 – 34.

      Ooh la la!

      • The compact range is neat and so is the Flair range listed in the estate sale. So much STUFF at the estate sale! I am in the non acquiring stage of my life. Fun to look at, but not tempted by any of the goodies! In fact I should be inspired to get rid of stuff after looking at all those possessions!

      • Vintage Frigidaire Flair Custom Imperial (Concord)

        Frigidaire Flair Custom Imperial:
        This unite is 50yrs old
        It has been restored. Everything works.
        Its in beautiful shape. My mother purchased it in 1962 used it for many years.
        I had it restored 1 yr ago for my wife then we moved and decided to sell it.

        Underneath the range is a storage area with ample space for lots of cookware, and the shelves in this area are very sturdy. This area, like this whole Flair, is very clean and ready to use!
        $1000.00 or best offer

    2. Very Jetsonian looking! There’s no mistaking those GE/Hotpoint pushbutton burner controls. I wonder if it was designed for commercial / institutional use.

        I was thinking that it looked like something that Major Healy would have in his bachelor pad on I Dream of Jeannie! That whole space race time period is my favorite… it would have been nice to be a teen during that time instead of a 6 year old… :)

    3. Way cool! And convenient, too (unless you just don’t have the counter space).

      I recently saw this pale yellow, Westinghouse oven, listed in Craigslist.(Dallas) I keep lurking looking for pink appliances. But have not had much luck finding them.

    5. Oh it’s better than a Flair. It’s a DOUBLE Flair!!
