I just purchased a house and the previous owner left an old 1940 Tappan Deluxe Model 62 stove. On these stoves there is a large compartment on the left. Next to the oven and the broiler. What is this used for? Someone suggested that this portion of the stove is used as a "proofer". A "proofer" is used in making bread. It is a warm spot where dough rises. Does anyone have a old owner's manual and can explain to me how this part of the stove is used. I would appreciate any help. Thank you, firstname.lastname@example.org
Anonymous - It's simply a storage area for puts & pans or warmer area to keep food warm. It would work perfectly for raising bread dough. Some models of the Tappan Deluxe stoves include "crisper drawers" where they suggested people could store things like crackers, cereal, etc to keep them crisp.
Has anyone ever heard of the deluxe model tv63x16? I want to buy this stove but nobody has any info on it. I need to have it changed from natural gas to LP. Any info will help.
Mitzi, I have a TV63X16. Mine is set up for natural gas. I just got in in October 2010, and so far am pleased with it.
