  2. Interesting. I thought maybe they were invented 20 years later, when electricity in the home was more commonplace.

  3. We used the oven rack and opened one stove lid on the old wood cook stove. It made great toast. Oh ya, we had home made bread.

  4. When I was a penniless university student who did not own a toaster, I toasted bread on a wire coat hanger over a red hot element on the stove.
