Everything old is new again

Heirloom tomatoes and heritage pork are all the rage, writes slate.com's Regina Schrambling, so why not vintage ranges, too? In an article posted online yesterday, Schrambling revisits these old kitchen workhorses and comments on their durability, "like the 1950s Pontiacs still rolling around Havana" she writes, as opposed to "the Hummers (i.e. new commercial ranges for the home) so many cooks purchased." A great piece that has already sent me to our local craigslist listings to see if there are any Wedgewood's hiding in plain sight (please don't tell w...I can already see her eyes rolling).

As you know, we went there and had a gorgeous 20s-era stove for years. Problem was, the oven wasn't insulated and the burners had no power.

Bottom line, I love my new downdraft Jenn-Air.
