1857 'NEW COOKING APPARATUS.—A very Compact and complete cooking apparatus is now on view at the new smithery in this [Portsmouth] Dockyard. It is the Invention of Messrs. Redpath and Leigh, the engineers, of Limehouse. It is 6 feet square, size of a ship's ordinary cooking galley, but is capable of cooking food for 200 men. Meat may be simultaneously roasted, boiled, baked, or fried, vegetables being at the same time boiled or roasted, bread baked, and soup made. A valuable feature of the invention is, that it dispenses with the enormous grates, and their massive bars, common to the ordinary galley, three small furnaces being substituted for them, and which together do not consume more than one-third the quantity of fuel of a ship's galley. —Daily News.'[2]
