The Story of Electricity



'Cooking and heating by electricity are coming more and more into favour, owing to their cleanliness and convenience. Kitchen ranges, including ovens and grills, entirely heated by the electric current, are finding their way into the best houses and hotels.' - The Story of Electricity, 1915

Only the best for Hannah.

Speaking of which, how does the stove regulate burner current? Almost would have to be using a transformer with different windings; voltage divider would create too much heat in the potentiometer.
