CONSUMERS CONSUMERS I UDM Classifieds Pay Dividends Timely DOWN THROUGH THE YEARS WITH GOOD COOKS Perhaps the first "cook" in history was the primitive man (or his wife) who accidentally dropped some raw meat in the fire, chewed on .it, and found it good. Actually, for many eons of time, the open fire or fireplace wasjme only equipment available for family cooking. ' " In the Middle Ages, the women of France suddenly took an interest in the fine art of cookery, but only the great palaces and mansions were equipped with brick- lined iron stoves. Most women of Europe and eauu ,. America cooked over open hearths where roasts turtiea 1 on the spit, and heavy iron kettles, black witly soot, had to be moved and lifted by the patient cook. The first box-like iron stove invented by our own Benjamin Franklin in 1744, while better than the open hearth, still tied women to the endless task of feeding her family. Those stoves were termed "Iron Monsters." It was an Englishman who was first to demonstrate "cooking with gas" in his home. Pioneers traveling to that country brought back word of the new fuel, and in 1859, 244 gas companies were organized in the United States and Canada. In the Aug. 1, 1859 issue of the American Gas Light Journal an all-gas stove was advertised. It came in eight sizes, and had "steak broilers, smoothinq irons, nurse lamps, bread toasters, hqtters irons (of all things?), and gas ovens." Crude as they were these first gas stoves were welcomed bv American women as harbingers of a new era in cooking. No longer was a week's baking saved up to be done all at once in an outside baking oven. Very likely, some readers of this newspaper can remember those old«n time gas stoves. Nearly every one had some kind of water tank attached, and a huqe dipper ladled out the- hot water on Saturday night. When bakinq was planned, the qas was turned on and allowed to burn for awhile. Th§ housewife generally tested the oven heat with the back of her hand. The greatest changes in cookerv came about 1915, when thremostats were first installed on gas ranges. And all because of a small Ohio bov's promise to his mother. He was Ben Meaeham and he used to watch his mother when she baked. He saw how she had to fuss, turn the dampers down, peek into the ov*n, and always kept watching her pies and cakes. When he grew up he invented the oven thermostat to control tern- perature. And great-grandfather, in pioneer times, very likely ate too much fried food, resulting in indigestion. Today's gas range broilers mean that smart hememqkers can plan complete broiler meals for their family. And top-of.the-ranee cooking, which is about 80% of all cooking today, means that every utensil become* an automatic appliance, without bollovers, over-cooking or burning. Yes, today's modern gas ranges make cooking both an art and a science. New foods and modern timesaving automatic gas ranges have added to the pleasures of cooking and eating food. Your local gas appliance dealer will be glad to show and demonstrate the "wonders" of 1957 gas cookery . . . Iff easier, ifs more economical It's one of the things that has made kitchens what they are today.
