    Just picked up a Salmon colored Caloric G100 at an estate sale. Would love to get a manual for it but they do not seem to be around.

    I found one of the first ones, the Kenmore and man its so cool. Mine is very clean but the top chrome part is dented. The top has a bunch of little ranch brands randomly drawn on it.

    Do you know where I may be able to buy a vintage grill such as some of the ones you have listed in the above article?

    I am trying to find out more about the Kenmore grill with the rotiserrie above #2. My neighbor recently bought one and we are curious about its history and current value.

    All help is appreciated.
    Thank you,

    My niece & her boyfriend were just here…..and I gave him my BuddyL cookbook from 1965. I’m trying to get them into the Retro mindset & must say it’s working. He loved the little cookbook 🙂 – who would think you could cook Rabbit on the grill? Or liver & onions?

    As we wait for our reproduction 1950s kitchen to be finished, we’ve been cooking all of our meals on the Partiocart. It has saved us as we move through the house restoration!

      Heidi, grilling is what we do when there’s major reno going on, when the kitchen gets too hot, when we’re at camp, when there’s a power outage. But we don’t have that beautiful Partiocart. I have a jillion recipes for thinks normally put in the oven or cooked on the stove top that can be done on the grill in foil packets, on a grill wok, etc.

      Please let us know when your kitchen is done! We can’t wait to see it.
