The more economical cousin of the deluxe gas stove shown here, this must-have kitchen apparatus will roast meat, bake a pie, and heat your soup all at once! Love it!

  1. I love this stuff you dig up! When my grandfather died I inherited some middle school texts, as he only attended till the eighth grade. Love reading that stuff like the stuff you find. What life was and is!

    1. Thanks for the great feedback, Chris! It’s a fun little hobby that I enjoy sharing! I, too, especially like that it offers us a window into the past about daily life for the average person – and I feel so pampered with my drip coffee maker and toaster waffles on a Monday morning. Thanks for stopping by!
