Back in the days, it was common for people to cook on open fires on the ground outside and it was impossible back then to have a modern kitchen. The wood and the food were subsequently maintained with simple masonry buildings. As the middle ages approached, in metal chaudrons hanging over the fire, food was often mounted. Naturally, this cooking area lead people to collecting the primary sources of heat, light, protection and, as is obvious, food.

Fireworks produced smoke as well as soot, which was a major problem right up to the sixteenth century, when chemists were commonly used in the home. Smoke was basically dealt with as it was taken out of the living space with a chimney to make extensive cooking fires that were easier to breathe and to make them easier in fires.

The design as well as the functionality of the kitchen is influenced by economic trends and policy. Technological progress was slow, most of which was designed to reduce work and time. The wood was heating the stoves in the 18th century. Just so you know, the stew stove was designed in the year 1735 by the French inventor Francois Cuvilliés was one of the first wood-burning kitchen stoves.

In the 18th century, metal stoves were used. Moving on, the Franklin stove was introduced to the world by Benjamin Franklin in 1742, is an early and popular example of a metal stove. It had a labyrinthine path that allowed the heat to enter rather than the chimney to escape hot exhaust gasses. This stove has, however, only been designed for heating rather than cooking.

Philo Stewart invented the Oberlin Stove in 1834 as a wood-burning, lightweight, cast-iron stove. It was a kitchen stove made of metal smaller than cooking in a fireplace, as the heating capacity increased and the cooking time were registered. This was a huge business success; it might be shaped into decorative forms and shapes and can easily withstand changes in temperatures from warm to cold. Such iron stoves have developed into advanced cooking equipment with fireplaces, furnace door, and hot water installations.

In the wake of World War II, the housing boom and technological developments influenced the’ new’ kitchen. The demand for kitchen technology and equipment encouraged homes to tear down walls that once concealed the utilitarian kitchens. There was an increased demand. The kitchen was becoming healthier, cleaner, structured and easier to work in; a source of intense pride and an enjoyable place for tourists.

Health and energy efficient ovens are more easily available today. Eventually, our appliances suit our quick, demanding lifestyles. Speed stoves reduce the cooking time by half, thereby reducing energy consumption when cooking. In the traditional sense, the kitchen does not look like the kitchen. Now it is a clean room with a whole range of modern equipment aimed at a sustainable future.
