This advertisement for a gas stove featured in a book entitled ‘Madge’s Book of Cookery and Home Management’. It was written by Mrs C E Humphry, and published in London in 1901.
At the turn of the century, free-standing gas stoves such as the one featured here were available, but unusual. Most households that had one used it alongside a traditional range.
The book aimed to ‘supply recipes which are not to be found in the generality of cookery books, but which are suited to the requirements of households in which the amount expended on food has to be limited.’
