Function over form for me. My induction cooktop is made by Electrolux and badged Kenmore -- and I absolutely love it. It has the speed and temperature control of gas, and it is incredibly energy efficient. And it's a happy companion to the original 1954 Nutone vent hood. http://www.pbase.com/many_ho...

"Sandblasted plywood," exactly.

The family room in my 1954 Minnesota ranch has this original paneling. It is the color of the natural wood, though. My Dad, (now 92), who was in the lumber and building supply business recognized it immediately on his first visit to the house.
