In the basement of our old house sits a Quick Meal gas cook stove. I googled “Lorain Quick Meal” but get recipes for quiche lorraine. I’m not certain, but I suspect this oven never baked a quiche lorraine.
Do you know in what year it was manufactured? It looks like an antique but since it is a gas stove, it must be a little newer that it looks. You’ve got me curious about it now and I’ll look it up on google as well. Interesting.
When we moved in, the gas was still connected! I nearly blew up our house.
Try the website http://www.antiquegasstoves.com. I googled Lorain gas stoves and a ton of sites came up.
Awesome website! Thank you! Our old house has been filled with mysteries. In the carriage house, I found an old army foot locker–complete with old newspapers.
I bet a lot of venison stew got made .. and maybe cornbread.
Probably did some canning, too. Tomatoes and green beans.
I’ve caught the google bug too … I tried Lorain oven heat regulator and came up with the same site already mentioned above. Don’t you just love a puzzle ? :-)
I do! I love folks helping us solve the puzzle, too. Thank you!
I actually tried to google around to help you out, but I didn’t find anything useful. Just some stuff on oven regulators..
Did you ever find out what it was worth? I now also have a quick meal stove ive inherited and have been trying to find out what its worth.
I haven’t even tried to find out its worth. Sometimes Tom will say, “We should sell that” and then we look at each other and just go upstairs. It seems like a lot of work for probably very little money. And then, there’s the thought that it’s been in this house for maybe a hundred years, you know? Who are we to sell it? Sigh.
Hello, I was wondering what ever came of the stove? My parents have one just like the one you have pictured that the inherited from a family member. They have ignored it for the better part of 30 years and now it sits outside in worse shape than ever. I have loved this piece and wondered where to start to find out about it.
Hi, Christy! We moved from that house 5 years ago and the stove was in the basement when we moved out. The amazing woman who purchased the house restores antiques. It could be that she sold it, but I suspect she did not. She has turned this old house into what could almost be a museum! Here’s the Realtor.com site, with photos of the home when she had it on the market. She does not have photos of the basement, however. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/410-E-Walnut-St_Bloomington_IL_61701_M81734-84878#photo0
Oh my gosh Thank you for replying! I thought it was a shot in the dark with your original post being so long ago lol. The internet has slim pickens when it comes to this stove. Thank you for the link! That house is beautiful ❤️
