Wedgewood Wood/Gas Cook Stove
[Return to Topics]

My stove has a two-burner wood box on the left, four gas burners in the center, and a gas oven on the right.

On the front left there is a knob that says "kindler." And one can turn to the right or left.

Anyone know the purpose of this knob?

Thanks

Not my real e mail address. I was just surfing by and thought I'd respond. Those old stoves with the kindler are wonderful. I DO know they have a knob you can twist right and left then all the ashes and soot fall below into a box which you can pull out and empty. Turning the knob opens and closes this kind of grid that locks together. Then of course the gas knob like the other person mentioned. My aunt in San Francisco had one when I was a little kid and I worked it all the time. I'm gonna get me one of those in the near future, here it is 40-45 years later.

I just happen to have a Wedgewood cook stove for sale. It has the wood burner, 4 gas top burners, oven etc. It is white and has been in my grandmothers house since 1933. Perfect condition.

I visited with the former owner today, and the knob turns a gas valve on that serves to start the wood fire. Works really neat. One turns the valve on, then lights the flame (either top or bottom). When the wood fire reaches the desired level, then turn the gas off, and cook with wood.

Thanks

My guess is that that controls the amount of air in the wood stove so it's easier to get a fire going.
