Antique vs. Northstar

Orange Elmira Fridge

If you’re looking to take your kitchen to the next level, you’ve come to the right place. You know you want something that will make your vintage kitchen pop even more. Lucky for you, Elmira has everything you need to put together your dream kitchen. The question then becomes Antique or Northstar?

Both lines have wonderful features and unique looks that you can’t find anywhere else, so how do you decide? Well, we’re here to help. We can’t choose for you – we have trouble picking just one too – but we can give you a comparison to make your decision-making process a little bit easier.

The Northstar line is made up of appliances that combine the retro look of the 1950s with the convenience and performance of modern appliances. It’s truly the best of both worlds.

Models of Ranges

The line includes everything from ranges to refrigerators, microwaves to hoods and splashbacks, and even keg fridges to dishwasher panels. The Northstar line also gives you the flexibility to make sure that your appliances meet your needs, such as choosing between sealed-gas burners and high-speed radiant electric elements for your range.  Refrigerators come in seven different models with customizable options, so you get everything you want. Northstar even takes it up a notch with keg fridges to make sure you never go thirsty. With a microwave that only looks like it’s from 1953, you have 1200 watts of power and all the features you could possibly want, such as a genius sensor cook and a child safety lock, in a state-of-the-art microwave.

With outside-vent or recirculating hoods and splashbacks, your entire kitchen can look uniquely retro. In addition, Northstar has panels for fully integrated panel-ready dishwashers.

The Northstar line has everything to meet your retro appliance needs. After customizing everything to your liking, the only question remaining is what color best suits your retro kitchen? The Northstar line is available in nine different eye-catching colors, and is even available in custom colors of your request.

The Antique line has a unique look that reflects a classic 1800’s era. It gives you a classic look while maintaining the luxury and technology of modern appliances.  You never have to sacrifice.

Antique Ranges

The Antique line allows you to fully customize almost everything to your unique preferences. The range has a “stay hot” food warmer, “feather touch” and electronic control panel located at eye level. Choose from a total of 13 models featuring 10 different cooktops, sealed gas burners, cast electric elements or radiant high-speed smoothtops — all-electric, all-gas (natural gas or liquid propane) or dual fuel. In addition, you have a choice of electric, electric convection or gas oven – all self-cleaning, of course. Then there are the colors and trim options: eight colors, three metal trims (Nickel, Brass or Copper), trims for legs, door frames, trivets, skirts and shelves. And that’s just the ranges!

Sound mind-boggling? The “Create Your Dream Kitchen” tools on our website walk you through it and make it simple and easy. You can make your Antique range uniquely your own.

Four different refrigerator models mean you can find one that has everything you’re looking for. All four models can be customized as you want.

Microwaves may not have been around in 1895, but our Model 1895 Microwave is designed to not only give you 1100 watts of power but also fit in perfectly with your antique kitchen.

The Antique line also offers a 5.0 cubic foot convection wall oven, perfect for those who need extra capacity. Also available from the Antique collection are panels for fully integrated panel-ready models.

There are a lot of things to consider and both lines have a lot to offer. The more we compare the two, the more we wish we had two kitchens – one for each line!
