One of the first British designs was the Ideal Cookanheat. This was a revolutionary designed, freestanding stove that combined an open fire, central heating boiler, cooking oven and hot cupboard all in one unit. The Ideal Cookanheat did more to introduce central heating into lower cost homes than any other similar appliance.


This model was another early boiler whose main purpose was to provide enough hot water supply for the homeowner. Interestingly, later versions provided a choice of matte colour: grey, green or brown. An additional extra was to have a cream enamelled front platework, with top plate, smokehood and baseplate enameled black – although this represented an extra cost. It is clear that in the 1920s, Ideal Boilers was already giving customers choice
