On this site I am selling parts for old stoves that date from the 1920s through the 1950s. I have also accumulated some larger double oven stoves and some unusual stoves that I would like to restore and sell. I will gradually be adding them to the site.

Old Stoves are Hot is a well researched history of cooking stoves from about 1880 to 1955. Printed in full color in an 8 1/2 X 11 format, it also contains hundreds of fascinating, vintage advertising images and interesting photos from stove company brochures.
In addition to the 1950's classics (such as O'Keefe & Merritt and Wedgewood) the book also discusses wood burning stoves, gasoline vapor stoves, oil stoves, electric stoves, changes in stove design and their features and much more!
