The Moffat Stove advertised in the cookbook was created by a Scottish immigrant named Thomas Lang Moffat Sr. With his family, he founded T.L. Moffat & Sons, initially producing farm equipment before entering the cooking stove industry. A factory was built in Weston, Ontario where production began on a larger scale, an illustration of which is provided above. Their stoves were highly regarded locally as well as on a global scale. The Moffat Company became industry leaders, creating the first electric ranges available for the domestic market. After many acquisitions, the Moffat Company became a subsidiary of the Canadian Appliance Manufacturing Company (Camco) in 1977. The Moffat name now belongs to the Italian manufacturer Ali Group where it is still seen on appliances to this day.
