I found one identical to that sitting curbside last summer. It is a little dirty but I think it would clean up just as nice as this one. Itís just sitting out on my back porch now.

Why were these called Dutch oven? If I google Dutch oven I see a lot of cast iron pots.

I've no idea either why they are called that. A dutch oven is a cooking/baking pot usualy made of cast iron. Me thinks they've used a bit of marketing license because it has some sort of feature uncommon in other stoves. Seeing as it has what looks to be two compartments on either side maybe they're stretching the term "double dutch"

Maybe they called it "Dutch Oven" because it has a deep well on the stove top that could act like a cast iron Dutch Oven?

Not a Tappan

These were made by a stove company in Indiana that suddenly went bankrupt around 1957 and closed the doors putting Maytag as well as OEM range owners out of luck when they needed replacement parts.  There are several mentions in Maytag service update bulletins desperately seeking parts for warranty work, etc.


I have had a couple of these, combined two into one that we used in the kitchen for 6 mos. or so.  The Dutch Oven was a method to preheat the oven, bake/roast for a specified time and then finish cooking with the gas turned off.  There was a damper that closed the vent on the oven and combined with a thick steel plate in the bottom, retained heat to finish cooking.  Due to the heavy steel plate, it was probably the most even-baking oven I've ever used but it also took 30+ minutes to heat to cooking temperature.  


The Maytag Dutch Oven cookbook has one of the very best angel food cake recipes ever.

Interesting , thanks Gregg. Didn't Chambers use the same stored heat concept as well.

"Why were these called Dutch oven?"

Authentic dutch doors are split horizontally. My estimate is they used the two half doors one either side of the oven door as their reasoning to abuse the "dutch door" modif.

Thanks guys for the explanations. The dutch door was a new english word for me. They are called "Boerendeur" overhere which means farmer's door.

Globe American , They also were sold under the Globe name, If im not mistaken the factory burned down and they never rebuilt

Interesting, Hans, I hadn't heard that about the fire.  That would explain the loss of all parts manufacturing, etc.  It's funny that Maytag abandoned their range line, and Amana built refrigeration products after this and none were offered again until several decades later when they acquired Hardwick/Admiral/Norge et al. 


"Dutch Oven" would be a reference to the brick ovens of Colonial times.  There's a whole story about this in the Maytag Q&A book on their line of ranges.   They also made a couple of models that were conventional gas ranges.
