This #61 Chafing Dish Catalog is one of the earliest made showing the first use of electrical appliances. I believe Manning Bowman had an agreement with Simplex before they made stoves on there own. Although no date appears on the catalog it can reasonably date from circa 1901/02 based on the lack of the second 1901 patent on the alcohol lamp and the 1901 stove patent.
