What brand of appliances are these?

Postby Tim Young » Tue Nov 23, 2010 9:38 pm

Saw these ovens in a Sunset book from 2003. Anyone know what brand they are? I like them because they have a 1950s quality to them. I don't like most newer ovens.

The tag looks like Jenn-air to me but I can't find one like this on their website...

It all looks very European to me. Well, except for the big dishwasher.

I think this is the same brand. I found it using google images. Unfortunately the photo is not labeled with the brand name. The knobs seem to match:

I just looked a bit at turbochef. Are they all stand-alone ovens or do they also make built-ins? Which one do you like?

I like this vintage thermador model. I might go with it unless I can find a newer one that I like. Problem is that I'd have to rebuild the cabinets to fit it. I'm also a bit unsure about doing that and committing to the thermador's unusual size in case something goes wrong with it.

Both the Alpes Inox and TurboChef come in built in models. The Alpes Inox are available in 24" models and are conventional ovens. I believe the TurboChef is a Speedcook oven and I think is only available in 30" models.

I can't really say as I have never cooked in either brand. The idea of having a speedcook oven is intriguing though since we cook a lot. I have yet to fork out that much money though and in this house we are going to need a 24" oven unless we modify the cabinets.

I'm guessing you need a 24" oven too.

I forgot to mention that sadly our original kitchen is long gone but the plans show two side by side 24" ovens. If we were to completely redo our kitchen I might want this Fagor side by side model.

The bertazzoni is close to the oven in bottom pic.

Dani,

I googled it and you're right, it is very similar. The one I really like is the first pic of the built in. I thought maybe it was a Britannia from my google image searches, but it's not quite the same.
