The nature of Walter's invention is to "provide a cooking range of such construction that either wood, coke, or bituminous coal may be used; if bituminous coal, it will be coked in the grate. It has also ovens so arranged that by means of dampers the heat can be directed around either or both. The central compartment is lined with either porcelain or any substance to retain and reflect heat, and is situated directly over the grate, so that, when desirable, the heat may be made to pass directly through it, and all cooking be done by the direct action of the heat instead of being radiated, as in the case of ordinary close ovens." (Patent Number 62,169)
