What an awesome find! I have a very "retro" looking kitchen and that Caloric would look super in it.

We had a 1960s Caloric (all gas) and it was a superb stove; beautifully made and very high quality. Really built to last.

I currently have this Crown stove, doesn't burn coal but thought I would share. I believe it dates from the late 1960s or early 1970s.

Thanks all. I am not sure of the year yet. Just got it yesterday and have not had time to mess with it yet. I have been scouring Craigslist on a daily basis looking for something like this and I could not believe the condition. So, I had to jump on it.

As of now I do not know of any others, however my brother does Estate cleanouts and I told him to keep an eye out for me. If I hear anything I will let ya know.

Now the bad news...this unit is a propane model..so I need a regulator as well as a dual Pilot Thermopile Safety Valve to get her up and running properly.

Cha Ching!

That photo sure brings back memories of my childhood. It's exactly the stove that was in my Mother's kitchen. It was purchased new in the late 40's or early 50's. It was still in use when I sold my Mother's home in 1985. It was originally propane powered, but when natural gas came to town it was converted. The coal part heated our kitchen and adjoining living room. The left side swings open for access to the shaker grates and the removable ash box. It was my job as a kid was to carry it out and empty the ashes. The little black knob on the front upper left controls the manual draft damper. The oven and broiler are on the right, both gas powered. Of the four gas burners on the top one is larger than the other three. That's the one that was used for boiling water when canning fruit. Plenty of BTU's. The coal stove was used primarily for heat and simmering a pot of water or soup. It was also used to toast bread. Just remove one of the top grates and hold a piece of bread with a long fork over the hot coals. You quickly had toast. The two silver grills are heat vents, the left one is coal the right one gas oven. The light is a long single florescent tube, something special to see in the late 40's. The electric clock has a buzzer timer. My Mother cared for her stove well. She said it was so much easier to cook on than the old only coal stove. I wish I would have kept it when I sold the house.

Here's a new one.

This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.


It looks as though it has the hookups for a water tank on the side. Mine doesn't have that. :(
