    We have a ""Kitchen Kook, Model 822, Patented Jan 4, 1927. American Gas machine Company, Inc. Albert Lea, Minn "" stove. I think it has been in the family since it was purchased, and I think the last time it may have been fired up was around 1960. Its been in an attic ever since. I have no idea how to operate it. Does anyone have a copy of an operating manual, or know where to find one or a reproduction? We would like very much to learn of any information any of you may have about this stove.

    Thanks for your interest.

    Very cool! Does it looks to be slightly modified? I spy a roto-type generator.

    Hi Rhubarb, I don't know if it's been modified. I really don't know what you and scouterjan are talking about. I suppose that after all these years, I ought to part with this great stove, though I'd really hoped to have it running first. But, I know nothing about it. Can any one help, or is anyone interested in this stove?

    We've decided to sell this stove. It'll be a good winter project for someone. I'll try to create a classified ad on this site soon. In the meantime, you may respond here if you wish. Geo
