  • Goschenhoppen Historians, Inc. :: 2013 - From Hearth to Cook Stove
    as some families cooked certain foods in the Schtubb on top of the jamb stove Two people recalled three different types of cakes that were made on the stove The earliest reference to cooking directly on the stove comes from George La Bar s recollection of life in the 1770 s In his family Buck wheat cakes were baked on this iron box jamb stove in the opposite room from the kitchen The La Bars used the top plate of the jamb stove as their cake plate But cooking was at most min imal on the five plate stove top There is little doubt that the stoves heated the room well One traveler during the winter of 1819 experienced with some frequency among the Germans in Pennsylvania the felicity of being nearly stifled with the heat of their stove rooms and the fumes of tobacco Stove Pipe When stoves began to have smoke pipes and no longer needed to be built into the backs of fireplaces another change came to the Pennsylvania German house the relocation of the fireplace from the middle of the house to a gable end and the enlargement of the kitchen The invention of stove pipe changed domestic life Now the stoves could be free standing and placed anywhere in the room Free standing stoves made of six cast iron plates instead of five were first produced in Pennsylvania in 1761 with the last known dated five plate cast in 1768 It s safe to say that few central chimney houses were built after this date Ten Plate stoves Most readers of this paper are sufficiently familiar with ten plate stoves as to need no lengthy description But in brief first cast in 1765 ten plates are the likely genesis of all later cook stoves Having a firebox on the bottom a flat cooking surface on top and a small oven with hinged doors in the middle this stove gradually accustomed house wives to stove cooking However It must not be supposed that immediately every house had a ten plate stove There were households in the Goschenhoppen where hearth cooking was still practiced into the twentieth century Also it seems the ten plate stove was more enthusiastically adopted in the German areas than in the more urban Anglo Perhaps this was because of the Anglo s predilection for the sight of the fire and perhaps a bit of lingering anti German sentiment as the closed stove was associated with the Germans Less clear is how the ten plate stove may have been adopted in the Pennsylvania Dutch living room The English name for the Stube Despite the new chores of daily removing ashes and carrying wood into the living room we find the old five plate stoves to have apparently fallen from fash ion There is no evidence to show that they were cast after the war German houses built toward the end of the 18 th century continued with a two or three room first
