DIY: Creating Character With Vintage Wall Ovens

1950 Caloric wall oven

I recently checked out a swanky 1950 Mid-Century in Highland Park. While the house was cool, what really caught my eye was the kitchen’s aqua and chrome vintage wall oven. As you all know, I’m a die hard fan of vintage stoves and adding a candy-colored wall oven can only sweeten the pot.

The biggest names in vintage wall oven-ry were Caloric, Wedgewood and GE. Lucky for you, they can still be purchased on eBay and Etsy at a teeny tiny fraction of the cost of a restored vintage stove.

    love that stuff! I often see houses with the original 50’s wall ovens that still work!

    My mom has a 1950’s Caloric wall oven that has never been used. What price should she put on it to sell on ebay?

      Wow that’s awesome! I’d scour eBay and Craigslist, then call the experts at Savon Appliances in Burbank (they specialize in pristine vintage appliances). With those numbers, you can put a price tag on yours. Send pictures!
