Tappan Accessories

These pictures were taken out of the 1940's Sales Manual for Tappan Philco stoves. The manual also includes a number of non-Tappan Philco stoves (the mentioned Model 440 isn't a Tappan).

I thought it was fun because it shows the Tappan Chromelite cast iron griddle sold as an extra for the early Tappan stoves. It also shows a similar non-Tappan cast aluminum griddle. In 1940, the list price for both of these griddles was $4.50.

The "Thrifty-Maid" Economy Cooker was sold as an accessory to all of the Philco stoves (Tappan or not). List price for the Thrifty-Maid was $8.50.

  1. The cast iron ring for the thrifty-maid, is it separate or part of the base. Mine has a rolled lip on the bottom.
