The domestic gas oven introduced by the English firm of Smith

and Phillips is one of the first such ovens to be put on the market

in an age of coal and wood stoves(1855). Cooking fuel is so costly

that hot meals are prepared only two or three times a week in most

British homes, but gas ovens will not come into common use for

another 20 years. This answer comes directly from The Food

Chronology by James Trager
