Heck, my Great-Aunt Cornelia used one of those every day of her life, clear up to when she died in the early 1970s. So did my maternal grandmother, now that I think of it. Both of them made some mighty fine vittles on it, too. (And yes, they had hot water heaters and central heating. They just preferred to cook on a wood stove.)

For years we didn't have forced air heating; we had "registers" in the floor. Nothing at all like sitting with your cold feet on the register, all wrapped up in a quilt and sipping hot chocolate (from scratch, of course) and eating cookies warm from the oven.
