The first patent for Stove

On June 30, 1896, patent no 670607 was issued to William Hadaway for his design of an electric stove.  Earlier cooking was done by fire produced from wood or fossil fuel, which is complicated and sometimes dangerous. His invention became immensely popular because it made cooking safer, clean, and fast. The innovative idea was straightforward and elegant. Even today, the electric stove is following Hadway’s invention. The heat is produced by passing the electricity from a resistance coil and radiated to an iron plate. The cooking pot and pans are placed on an iron plate and heat is transferred by conduction to the bottom of the utensil.
