Stoves Hand-Crafted in the U.S.A., Made in York Co., Pennsylvania
L. Baker Enterprises was founded in 1977. Art Baker, concerned with
our dependence on foreign energy sources, along with the high cost of
energy, invented a totally new wood stove.
stoves of the time period were little more than a simple box, and were
little changed from the stoves used in the last century. Art had the
idea to incorporate a combination baffle system and heating chamber
that would extract the maximum amount of heat from the wood, heat that
would being wasted up the chimney on other stoves.
stove Art invented is made to produce more heat with less fuel. The
stove takes cold air from your house and circulates it through the internal
heating chamber, which is the hottest area in the stove, and produces
hot air. The baffle system keeps the stove hotter by trapping the heat
for a longer period of time. The hot air is then delivered to you house
through the use of a blower system. At the same time, an easy spin draft
control was adopted to make temperature adjustments easier. With the
Baker stove, you get both radiant heat and circulatory heat!
Baker stove met with immediate success and the company was incorporated
in August of 1977. Several patents were issued on the stove design to
Arthur L. Baker.
Baker's family now run the company, and continues to produce a full
line of finely crafted stoves. All stoves are American made in York
County, Pennsylvania. Every stove model made is tested and approved
to UL standards.
