Cooking Lesson

This experiment introduces the Dove Pan, which has been a favorite piece of mechanical apparatus with magicians. It provides good comedy.


Performer shows a pan somewhat like a chafing dish. Audience can readily see that it is empty. Magician says that he is going to give a lesson in cooking. He then proceeds to break an egg into the pan, putting shells and all in, then throws in torn up paper, seasoning and flavor. Finally, he lights a match and sets fire to the ingredients in the pan. He places a lid on the pan and then removes it again, and it is seen that the messy contents have disappeared and two doves fly out of the pan—or a baby chicken, a guinea pig, a small rabbit, or candy kisses have appeared in the pan.
