...more about Antique Stoves
When antique stoves are restored for a new kitchen today, they are often retrofitted with modern burners and thermostat controls during the rebuilding process. They retain their classic look, yet they function a lot more like a modern appliance. But not quite like a modern appliance! They do often still have special clearance and height issues, since they were designed prior to the establishment of modern kitchen and appliance standards. Also, even with retrofit burners and controls, they should not be expected to perform quite to the level of a modern state-of-the-art range or cooktop – yet they can be a very satisfying compromise between old and new.
