Today’s “Kitchen of Tomorrow”

Although this video does not feature the Frigidaire Flair specifically, it does focus on the Frigidaire Dream Kitchen of tomorrow. Also, Paul Lukas wrote a piece entitled Today’s “Kitchen of Tomorrow” on Fast Company website that focuses on the visionary corporate marketing films in the Fifties and Sixties and compares them to current research for the Kitchen of the Future at places like MIT. He points out that fifty years after these videos were produced it is clear that the “kitchen of tomorrow may be more about preserving the domestic values of yesterday.”

    I have a Flair wall oven – I love it – but it has died due to a burned-out thermostat. Does anyone know where I can find a thermostat that will work in it?

    I’ve been trying to find out what kind of stove we had when I was growing up. I couldn’t find information anywhere, so when I ran across your photo of the frigidaire flair I was thrilled. Ours was slightly different with a chopping block top and a pop up button to slide out the burners. My friends all thought it was so cool back in the 60s.

    I have a Frigidaire Flaire Imperial I bought new in the ’60’s. I love it and don’t intend to part with it. However the thermostatically controlled burner is not functioning. Does anyone know where I can get the parts to replace that burner? I live in a small No. NV town and none of the appliance repairmen here can help—of course I have had offers to sell it to them! No deal. Glynnda

    We have a mid 1960’s, Model RCI645K Frigidaire Flair double oven range which my parents purchased in the mid ’60’s and is still being used today. However we are finding it increasing difficult to find service for this wonderful range. Both ovens still work great. The lights and 2 burners need repair. We are still cooking on remain burners. Stove has been kept in great condition and the finish is Coppertone. We have made the decision to finally replace this stove. Is anyone out there interested in purchasing this Model Frigidaire Flair Range once we have replace with new stove?
