Groovy & Classic Americana for your retro kitchen!
1960 Chambers 42 inch wide Electric rangetop with 8 inch deep inset counter top Gas Griddle Broiler
Model MT-42-C-1 drop in electric range with Thermal Eye
The original, diehard dual fuel range top!
All electric burners work. Have not tried the gas, but these things go forever!
I’m a chef and LOVE Chambers appliances, but don’t love electric burners, so we’re transitioning to a gas rangetop and this classic range has to go.
Trim is dusty rose tint stainless steel. One lever raises and lowers the griddle top, giving you simultaneous use of either a griddle at counter height, or an in-counter broiler with adjustable broiler height.
Has stainless steel backsplash & rose stainless side-splash included.
Unit is about 9 inches deep into counter, not including height of backsplash.
Hooks up to 240 volt electric and a gas line.

These would be perfect for someone looking for the "Retro" look in a bathroom. Willing to listen to ANY offer. (605) 261-9634 call me with any questions.
