Had to go to ole jeeps house this afternoon to line him up to help me tomorrow. I also had to check on "sammy and willie" his two hogs. Ole Jake was in the barn tryin to keep away from the horseflies, Griz was kinda occupied with his girlfriend and ole jeep was workin on one of his Gravelys. Well anyhow, we got to jawin and it turned into kitchen stoves--of the wood burnin, cookin type. He has the old Home Comfort of our younger brother Frank who died in 1972. Ole Jeep no longer uses it, it's just takin up room in his'n basement. Said I could have it! Yeah!!!! Just what I was wantin!! It'll go into my shop this fall--when I make room for it. Ain't nuthin like a pot of beans, hog belly and taters cookin on a wood stove. We are also plannin on doin some butcherin this fall in cooler weather. Figger'd it'd be legal to butcher something that "attacked" us'ns! Also discussed the ramifications of constructin a walk in cooler. A body hasta have somewhere to cool out an animal that "attacked" us.

Yipee!!!! I'm kinda excited bout the Home Comfort wood cookstove. We were raised on homemade, country growd and cooked grub from an identical stove. Maybe some of those famous "hoot donuts" will be accomplished with this new stove. Now, after he has give me the stove all I gotta do is talk'm into some hog from ole sammy or willie. hoot.

Oh Hoot, how wonderful! We had bought an old Home Comfort when we lived in Maryland but had to leave it there when we left to come here. I never got to use it. Does yours have the white porcelain fronts on the doors with the wheat decoration? Is it the gray granite and does it have a warming closet? Silly to sound so excited I guess but that's one of my dreams - actually having a wood cookstove that I can use.

Hey Terry! It's the white dude with the wheat thingy on the oven door. Has a water tank [can't spell resoviour] at the right end but no warmin oven. Just a shelf I think with a "box" thing in the center of the back. Some models had the 2 burner gas thingy on the right end in place of the water tank. Sis [ruth in s. ill.] has that kind with the gas burners. Well anyhow, I think I'll start cleanin out the shop tomorrow, if it's cool nuff, that is--so I can get the stove before/incase of ole Jeep changin his'n mind. Done and told Lil Dumplin about it already. She's somewhere in Indiana tonite---I couldn't wait till she's home Friday nite! Roasted turk, dressin, gravy, greenbeans, corn and choc cake!!! Boy, this is more fun than a barrell of monkeys! MY own Home Comfort wood cookstove!!! ole hoot, the countryboy cook! Matt. 24:44

Yeah!!!! How cool is that? No need to apologize for anything, Hoot. You're exuberant!! And I forgot to say, I was thrilled to see your sister Ruth visiting as well. Welcome, Ruth!

Congratulations on your wood cookstove Hoot. We have a South Bend Mallible, it's a box type black castiron with all the beatiful nickle trim. It's about a 1910-15 model. When we lived in Oregon we had a big Monarch, it was a later model, blue porclime. Real pretty but didn't cook very well. Why can't you put your stove in the kitchen in the winter then move it in the hot summer? There's nothing like a woodstove in the winter time.

Congrats on the stove! Now I have a question for anyone out there. We have a Home Comfort wood stove (bluish gray-speckled with water tank and all the trimmings) and live down in the northern neck of ole Virginy. When we moved here we lost our "eye lifter" (I think that's what it's called..used to lift the round plates) Anyone know where we could get one? Is there a place that still has parts for these ole gems? If anyone can help we'd appreciate it. THANKS! Jeff

Help Please! I have inherited my grandmothers Home Comfort range, and have to move it ASAP, as the house was sold. Does anyone know how to get the top where the burners are (above the firebox) off? I have tried to lift a section but do not want to break anything. Any info is appreciated. I do not want to give up this stove, it has too many good memories. Thanks in Advance. Gary

I am trying to buy a Home Comfort Range. Does anyone have any information about one for sale?

-- Ernest Rouse (erouse@erac.com), July 16, 2003.

I have a Home Comfort Electric range for sale. we believe it is from the late 40's or early 50's. The serial number has 53 as the last 2 numbers in it, so we think it may be a 1953 model.
