Want a New Old Fridge?

Rachael Ray gets lots of comments about the appliances on her various sets. They have a metro-retro feel and certainly don't look like anything they sell in stores around my house.

The Northwest Herald tracked down how you and I can get "a restored vintage range or for a new range with modern guts and an authentically retro facade."

The fridge on Rachael Ray's talks show is from the Elmira Stove Works. The company started by supplying parts to Mennonites in the area who owned truly antique stoves. Then, they stared creating appliances that had a retro look on the outside, but a modern KitchenAid Pro Line range or Maytag refrigerator inside. Rachael's fridge is the Northstar refrigerator. (Gabrielle on Desperate Housewives has a Heartland Appliances stove.)

The owner of the Elmira Stove Works says that their product's appearance on the Rachael Ray show has provided exposure that they otherwise might not have gotten: "Some people just don’t know these are available," Dowling said. Well, now you and I know!
