|The Model D, also more |
appropriately known as the MR-9-H
There might be uglier stoves out there, but considering how nice looking and un-gimicky Chambers stoves had been for so many years, even the plainest model D gives me a headache. Then there's the Stainless Steel and Ivory Imperial shown here, trimmed with airbrushed Avocado. It simply shocks the senses. The squared structure, multiple facets of varying colors and surfaces, yards of channel trim, and wacko, uncomfortable handles on the broiler, oven door and service cabinet. Hard to keep clean, unpleasant to touch... And the looks - like fingernails scraping on chalkboard, while chugging a castor oil martini!
|The Electric version. Still ugly.|

(Cooking With The Gas Turned Off) is a feature of Chambers Ranges that is not to be confused with automatic timing devices becoming more widely advertised. There is not much logic in buying a fine refrigerator to preserve food and then leaving perishables in a room temperature oven where the heat is not set to come on until 3:00 or 4:00 o'clock in the afternoon. With the remarkable Chambers method, no bacteria can develop because food starts to cook before you leave home; the cooking Finishes on retained heat and the Chambers oven and Thermowell act as sealed warming closets until it suits your convenience to serve the meal. Cook the food first - the Chambers way - and play safe!
TECH HINT: HAS YOUR Model D OVEN STOPPED WORKING? IE, does it refuse to light when you turn the dial on? If so, first be sure your oven's pilot is lit. If it is, there's a good chance your Auto Timer is malfunctioning. Try unplugging the stove's cord from the electrical outlet. You should hear an immediate "click" from inside the service cabinet. Unplugging the cord de-powers the Auto Timer and puts it into default "Manual" mode, which opens a valve between the oven thermostat and oven burner. A handy remedy when the Auto Timer switches start malfunctioning.
