Can You Offer Some Advice on Vintage Gas Ranges?

Q: I’m redesigning my kitchen, and love the look of 1950’s era vintage ranges, like Wedgewood or O’Keefe & Merritt. But I’m concerned about how well they cook and how easily they can be cleaned.

I’ve found one with four burners, a griddle, an oven, a broiler and a rotisserie! Should I take the plunge and get it? Or should I stick with my soul-less, but self-cleaning, modern gas range?

Editor: Lisa, we don’t have any direct experience with these sorts of stoves, although we also love how they look! We’ll throw this out to the readers; any advice for Lisa?
