Why an Atlantic?
The cook stove is a family institution. It holds a unique place in modern horne life. The entire household is dependent upon it and is vitally concerned in its wise selection. What makes the difference in ranges? One stove gives a consistent and faithful daily performance, another equally attractive on the outside, fails to satisfy.P O R T L A N D S T O V E F O U N D R Y CO.
What are the basic factors that together produce a good stove?
First of all, is there a reputable manufacturer back of it ? Are the castings satin-smooth and tightly fitted? Is it of simple design-free from over-ornamentation - easily taken care of? Is it economical of fuel? Is it designed for the greatest convenience of the cook? Does the heat of the oven respond quickly to the adjustment of the drafts? Can replacement parts for the fire box be obtained readily and economically in years to come? Can attachments, such as shelves, gas and warming ovens, coils for heating water, ash chutes, etc., be added at any time?
These are just a few of the questions that this company has encountered in over half a century of concentration upon the problem of producing good ranges. We made our first stove in 1877. We have been making them better and in a constantly increasing variety of useful combinations ever since. All have been improved in design and in substitution of smooth rounded surfaces for excessive ornament that formerIy added so much labor for cleaning.
The illustrations show the various ranges exactly as they look, and also give by comparison, some idea of their relative size. More detailed circulars of any range will be forwarded upon application.
