I was cleaning out the attic of my Mothers house when I found a Little Chef oven. This is the same house I grew up in, but I’ve never, ever seen this thing before. My sisters say it was not theirs and they’ve never seen it before either. My Ma has no idea where it came from, but I’m thinking maybe it was hers when she was a kid.
My internet search provided minimal info. Mostly that it may be from the late 30’s/early 40’s, strengthening my theory it may have been my Mothers as a kid, even if she doesn’t remember it.
It’s kind of the size of an easy Bake Oven but man, it doesn’t use a light bulb.
It’s more like a Hot plate shaped into a toy.
When plugged in the top part got hotter than a mutha fugger. I’m not exaggerating, this sonavabitch got really, REALLY, REALLY HOT!!!
Other than to give little girls severe burns I’m not sure what the manufacturers of this thing intended it for.
What I want to know is:
*Who made this thing?
*What year(s) was it made in
*What was it’s intent? The oven part doesn’t heat up, only the top metal part.
