Hey y'all! My husband and I have "inherited" a Home Comfort stove and would like to find out some info on it. All the info I have is that it was manufactured by Wrought Iron Range Co. in St. Louis, Mo and it has A Model: EA Serial No. 86193. I've tried to search on the internet, but can't find anything helpful. If anyone can offer any assistance, I would GREATLY appreciate it! Thanks!

Sounds like we have the same model (EA). Been trying to find info, no can do. Looking for recomendations for restoring top iron. Several areas are rusty and want to get it back to polished status.
Any recomendations?

do the same treatment to the stove top that you would do for am old cast iron skillet. clean, clean, then coat with oil & heat, redo if it is not the look you want.

I just bought one myself and was looking for some information. Have you found out anything.

I would love to send you a picture of the one I got. Have not brought it home yet so I don't know what the serial number is.

Here's a story much different from the ones I've been reading...
While hiking in the woods in Colorado, we came across the bottom half of a Home Comfort stove. Nearby, we found a piece of the top sticking up from the ground. We spent over an hour digging this part up, and amazingly it fit into the bottom half. We are now wondering what more may lie beneath the ground there. We too, have tried to search for information on this stove- including refrencing my Kovels' book- but have come up with nothgin. We are SO curious as to the history and value of this item.

Hi, Anybody out there have the warming ovens for a grey speckled Home Comfort wood cook stove? My stove is in great shape, just missing its top. Be willing to buy it from you. Thanks for any help. Kennie Lyn

I didn't inherit a stove, but a coin. it's the 75th anniversary coin from 1864- 1939. H.H. Culver founder, back side says : home comfort ranges the nations standard for 75 years. wrought iron range co. St. Louis, Mo.
so like all of you with ranges, can i find anything on the web about this anniversary coin? NOPE!

My father just bougth a Home comfort range with a date of 1864. It has a serial numer of M48758.
HE has been working on it, cleaning it, and I am afraid that it may contain aspestos. Does anyone know if they did use that material?

We just bought a home comfort cook stove MO. CB. Try checking on google by typing in home comfort wood range.I found the year and also pictures of the stove new and a parts page for the inside and the outside pieces. We needed new firebox liner parts and I found them through Heckler Brothers, which I beleive is in Massachusetts. If anyone needs parts I would suggest checking with them. There also is information and a picture of the building used by the stove company.

I too have a Home Comfort wood stove made by Wrought Iron Range Company in St. Louis and it has a missing leg and I would like to replace the leg. I agree with the other messages - it's almost impossible to find out anything about this stove or the company.

My husband just bought a Home Comfort range at a auction. I hate to say what we paid for it. After buying the range someone at the sale sold us the cookbook that everyone talks about. This one needs some work on the back and in the oven. If anyone has any info about range and where I could find someone to work on it I would really appreciate it.

I inherited a Home Comfort cookstove my parents
purchased in the late 1940s. I have found two links for
information on the Web, including a company that sells
antique stoves and has a Model CB priced at $2,450.

My husband has also inherited a wood cook stove made by the Wrought Iron Range Company St. Louis MO. We have the owners policy and the payment record this stove was purchased in November 1957. If you find any information on this company please e-mail me at

We have "Home Comfort Cookbook" which has the first 34
pages devoted to history of the ranges manufactured by the
Wrought Iron Range Co, St. Louis MO and pics of the evolution
of models from 1864 to the No.CA in 1933. We think this may
have been an owners manual for the CA and maybe the CB
Range since there are 3 pages of parts for the range. Some have
CB -XX part no's. Our old Home Comfort Range has been in the
family for years and was used off and on until about 4 years ago.
Since we are in AZ and old stove is in OH - not able to check
serial & model no. if it even has one.
There is info out there. Stay away from Bill Gates and do a
google search for 'home comfort ranges'.

I purchased a HOME COMFORT half gas/ half wood cookstove for 25$ Has anyone found any info on their stoves? The only thing I found was a "club" called TOAC (The Old Appliances Club) that wanted to charge at least 35$ for a membership fee and then they couldn't guarantee you would get any info! I love my stove... it is beautiful in my post-and-beam home. It does need a thermostat... right now I eyeball the flame when I have the gas on and adjust the height to the temp I need.

I have a Home Comfort Wood Stove also made by the Wrought Iron Range Co., St. Louis. I'm also trying to find any info on it. Trying to find out what year it was made and what it's worth. Have you found out any where to get info on our stoves? Thank you for your reply!

I'm looking for pictures of an old Home Comfort cook stove that my parents had when I was a kid. I found one on e-bay but it was a smaller version than we had, ours was almost 8 feet long. It had a sheet metal panel between the gas and wood burners, above the oven. And it had a soot scraper with it. If you have any pictures to share I would appericate them.

Thanks in advance

Hello All,
I have 2 Home Comfort St. Louis, Missouri, Wrought Iron Range Company, Wood Cooking Ranges. One is Model DA and Factory # is M50327. The other is Model EA and Factory # is 58276. They are in good condition, need cleaning (soot & ashes) but workable condition, great for restoration, a few scratches here and there, year unknown. Any information anyone can provide or anyone interested please email me for more info.

I did a search on, "Wrought Iron Range CO" and the first website that came up had a cookbook with a lot of history about the evolution of the stoves, pictures of the various models and parts available. Our friend just bought a home and wants to get ride of "the big old stove"--another man's junk will soon be my treasure :0)

It seems our stoves are the greatest mystery on Earth! I have hunted high and low to no avail!

I'll be glad to share anything I find! Apparently our stoves are well kept secrets! Mine makes a mean pot of chili and I love to make applesauce...the smell brings back memories of my great-granny!

My husband & I just bought a little house with a Home Comfort Range made by the Wrought Iron Range Co, St. Louis. Have you found anything out about yours? The lady we bought the house from used this to cook as well as to heat the house. Wonder if there's a market for these things; we aren't planning on keeping this.
