One lucky winner will get to choose one of the following prizes:

1) Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel French-Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator
2) Kenmore Elite Top-Load Washer with Kenmore Elite Dryer
3) Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher
4) Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel Freestanding Range

We just bought a new dishwasher last year from our local Sears store but our other appliances leave much to be desired; so, here's why I'd love to win:

My poor washer and dryer aren't antiques like my stove but they do make funny noises and the washer has an odd odor. They work well enough but between the hog smell, the crappy (literally poop covered) coveralls, and all the other cloths this duo has to handle I could use a couple of real work horses like the Kenmore Elite team.

 Meet our trusty cook stove. We rescued this antique from my sister-in-laws basement back in 2005. It is a Frigidaire model RD-20-61 from 1961. It was used for canning by the little old lady my sis-in-law's house was purchased from; although it still functions properly, I believe it is time for an upgrade.

Our fridge isn't too bad but it is small and smelly and older than the washer and dryer. Our original fridge quit on us a couple years ago so I was given my sister's fridge from her college days. It had been residing on my parent's back porch for several years and used for beer, wine, and forgotten holiday leftovers...from the previous year. Needless to say, it took quite a bit of scrubbing and a whole lot of bleach to get this little beauty ready for it's new home. The Kenmore Elite refrigerator would look like a god next to this thing.
Even if, by some minute chance, I were to win I'm not sure which one I would choose. Any suggestions?

  1. Thank you Jo for sending me pictures of your oven dials. I recently bought a house with an RD-20, but all the lettering on the dials were gone! Now I can tell what temperature I'm setting the oven at and most importantly, how much to move the dial to get another 25 degrees.

    These RD-20s are truly old relics. The guy at the parts store was telling me how they don't even make electric stoves this wide anymore. (The stove in this contest was a gas range.)
