I have NG in my home as well, but I just explained that PP was used in the US also, as oil and electric. I prefer NG over the other sources of fuel.

I have solar also, I wish they would offer some kind of storage then acid battery to consumers.

Thanks guys, this is plumbed for natural gas, propane in my area can get pretty costly, I've seen people drop $800 plus to refill....when we moved in the wife got an estimate for the stove, and Joe is right, prices start at $15k for this style.  Safe to say it's not going anywhere 😜.  I will need to have it serviced soon to keep it at tip top shape, no messing around with gas for me 😱.  Cooking last weekend with the cast iron Dutch ovens just felt right 👍.  Bill

Very cool! Looks like a 1930's model.  Google american stove company magic chef and you'll find lots of them.

Brings me back to simpler times.  Granted I wasn't around when people were using these, but they're in a bunch of the old movies that we all know and love.  To see one in real life is a treat.
Enjoy that beauty, Bill.

I love natural gas. I live in a older neighborhood and we have it piped in. I have my 40+ year old Sunray range,  my water heater and my dryer on gas.
When we go through hurricanes and lose power for days or weeks, I can easily cook and take hot showers. I need to convert my portable generator to natural gas. That is my next project before the next hurricane season.

By the way, I was not putting a price on your Bill's stove, I simply saying what the guy was making for  upgrading.

In Italy, I grew up having food cooked on natural fire as a kid.

Enjoy the stove bill.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

That is a beauty. When I was young, that was the style of stoves in quite a few older homes. Thanks for sharing.
