For anyone needing convincing....

Rural electrification in the U.S.
"The electric range or stove in the American farm kitchen eliminates the need of building fires, carrying fuel and emptying ashes, thus allowing the housewife at least ten more hours per month for other tasks. Food for farm workers is cooked faster and better on an electric range, improving the health and efficiency of the family. If the range has an automatic timer, food can be placed in the oven long before it needs to start cooking; at the proper minute the heat will turn itself on and the cooking proceed at the proper length of time, then turn itself off again, all without attention"
