The Old Road Home Hot-Cha Series Finale
Old appliance fans, here is the final
blue plate special of The Old Road Home vintage appliance magazine Hot
The Hot-Cha series was published as a unique
celebration dedication for owners, users, buyers, sellers and restoration experts of
all old appliance lovers everywhere.
When The Old Road Home publication emerged some 12 years ago it started as
a half page Xeroxed newsletter. This last edition with 4 additional pages is a
whopping 44 pages jam-packed with all the old time home appliance goodies.
MAGIC CHEF FANS See a brace of the over-sized
1930s six burner, double oven with C-curve warming closets.
MAGIC CHEF 6300. This Grand Jewel of the old stove world came in either 6 or 8
burner models. This six burner 6300 is all white with chrome trim and black ribbon edging.
It has been perfectly restored and will be utilized again in a custom built home in Texas.
In the meantime it is patiently waiting in an old Banana Vault.
is a great mini-story enclosed which charts out the details including the talented
restoration specialist that took charge of the complete refurbishing. Everything on this
Magic Chef 6300 works like brandee-new and will for decades more of Happy Cooking!
MAGIC CHEF 1000 is the next old stove beauty. THIS IS THE VERY LAST
MAGIC CHEF 1000 EVER PRODUCED! We were stymied to receive a personal letter from
the grandson of George Clark who was the founder of the incredible Clark Jewell Stove
Company. When George Clark retired, he was presented with the final 1000 series Magic Chef
stove ever to leave the factory production line.
FEATURE The Victrola by Mike Arnold
Mike Monitor top Arnold stops by to tell us about Model VV 11 Victrola.
Recordings made almost 100 years ago still sound crystal clear on this tall, dark mahogany
beauty. All old audio fans will adore reading and seeing this fabulous machine that looks
like it was just unpacked from a shipping crate ready to spin its first record.
STILL ALIVE AND WELL Check out this banquet
of fabulous antique appliances that surely will make your eyes pop out.
displayed is a rare marbleized porcelain 1935 Deco Style Norge refrigerator. What a
finish! Then, not to be outdone there is a 1933 Detroit Gas range with an incredible mother
of pearl relief in the raised enamel doors. Nothing like this will ever be produced
again. Few of these around and in such superb condition.
when you are passing out over those, look at the flip page of the spread and you
will see an incredible dripping in chrome 30s waffle / sandwich maker + a most
unusual 1951 Westinghouse Electric range. The ultra-cool part about this unit is that a
stool fits under one side of the stove. Most people have never seen a stove like this
before. (The seat was chrome with red or black vinyl.)
DOUBLING VISION - HOT POINT 1920s ELECTRIC RANGES - From
West Virginia you will view two 1920s left and right handed Hotpoint electric
ranges tied together for a whopping combination of double ovens, double roll top warmers,
a deepwell cooker and 7 burners. Its an awesome sight to see such a classic design
with so much cooking power all in one kitchen.
THE RONSON FOODMATIC You may have never
heard of it before. Well, neither have we until Jean Barrett sent us a picture of her
Foodmatic. This oldie but goodie even sports a cabinet with all the attachments beneath
it. The main mount for everything is recessed on top. Small appliances like this rarely
surface in such complete shape so make a point of studying it, just in case you ever run
into one and have a chance to buy it. It really did exist and it sure is slick.
FEATURE MOTHERLODE Finds a New Home Yes!
Chip Ruhl is back. Remember he rescued several tons of stoves from the scrap heap last
year? Well, Chip has pictures and more news about his personal stove and refrigerator
adoption effort that you might find quite startling. There is even a picture of a fat
Raccoon peering from the rafters of the barn over this gigantic arrangement of antique
stoves and refrigerators. Need some old stoves? Get them from the Chipper! Also in a
separate feature is Chips cousin Mel Goldys 193 Ivanhoe 3 burner Kerosene
stove. It works and is in super shape.
SERELCO Super-Chief Reflected Heat Stove WEIRD
but wonderful is the only way to describe this late 20s apartment table top stove. One
burner with electric oven featuring speed, economy and safety was the way it was
advertised. This survivor is in wonderful condition for its age too.
FEATURE The Apthrope Files Antique Appliance
detective James Apthorpe has discovered the Foreman pre-collectibles of
the future! Read all about it and get in on the game while the getting is still
good. Jim also sent in pictures of the famous G.E. Toaster with oven warmer beneath it
from the early 60s and a Dominion Waffle Make Circa 1928 with crusted chrome body and
porcelain top insert w/floral design and thermometer. He unearths such fascinating old
appliances, typewriters, radios, fans, etc. etc. Join Jim on this old appliance safari
