Why Aren't There More Refrigerator-Stove-And-Sink-In-One Units Around ?S

I'm looking at my not-that-big apartment and I see a separate fridge, sink and stove in my kitchen. Sure, it's convenient but if I could have this 1952 Cook and Wash Refrigerator Unit instead, I'd be living in a mansion.

It fits everything in 5 sq. feet! I never use a real oven anyways, so this is so perfect. Why didn't it take off? [Modern Mechanix via Neatorama]
