It's sold with that name in our stores. I had always thought its name was associated with the numerous ethnic derogatory terms the English associated with Dutch frugality (Dutch treat, Dutch courage), and since it originally would have been placed on coals in a fireplace, it was cheap and portable form of a stove. No offense meant to any Netherlanders out there. David Muschell Georgia College
