What might be the value of a 1948 Hotpoint range?
We have a 1948 Hotpoint Automatic Electric Stove, model RC14 great cosmetic shape, if I'm not sure if it is in working order. What would / could be the value of this beauty ... or is it stupid electric?
There are plenty of places to buy, sell, restore and assess vintage stoves. I did a quick search on Google and found a bunch. Here's one I used a few times to find parts for my 1951 gas range in Western Holly. www.antiquestoves.| Apr 03, 2010

I did some research on the site HotPoint. They say you can use a copper bottom on the ceramic plate with some caution, I have copied below.
