It comes from the English word stofa, meaning an enclosed space. Many people had these enclosed heated rooms where they could keep warm, or store things warm. The term was used in this sense until after the 19th century.

However, in 1742 Benjamin Franklin patented the first all metal stove with folding doors. It was discovered that these enclosed fires were much more efficient, and a much higher heat was achievable.

Since then, stoves have evolved enormously. There are "cooking" stoves that usually run on gas, and are for the purpose of preparing food. There are also stoves for heating the house, such as pellet stoves.
