Lindy just bought this for $200. I don't know what brand it is or anything about it. I'll check it out more when I get home.

I have an old jotul cookstove that my wife bought me in washington state.  It has never had a fire built in it to date.
I can find plenty of info on jotul woodstoves, but have never found any referance to them ever building cookstoves anywhere.

Should have rotating grates in the fire box,  one set for coal the other for wood.  There should also be a sliding damper on the back, open for using the cook top, closed for using the oven.

starmac,
 That Jotul cook stove is a very rare stove.Very highly sought after in certain circles.I have seen them for sale on Craigs list here in the Northeast.If I remember right they are kind of small with ornate castings on the side.

Got some more info from Lindy about the stove. It's a Woods Evertz. Later became WESCO stove. Manufactured in the early 1900's.

You are correct it is small compared to a full size cookstove, sort of like an appartment range compared to a fullsize unit.
It may be sought after but it is all mine now. lol

When we were living in Aniak, we cooked in/on a Monarch range, in the home we rented. That was a nice range!  Lehman's non-electric sells a whole lot of new ones in all kinds of sizes with a lot of accesories for many.

Today would be a perfect day here for a cookstove fire. The house is a bit cool and it is raining outside making the OWB annoying.

I have two sets of friends with cookstoves that use them regularly, one is a woman in her eighties and the other is in her fifties. One stove is the older style and one is a modern Amish. I expect bread is tricky to bake, otherwise it is just a matter of paying attention and consistent quality dry wood.

We have a Waterford Stanley cook stove.It is made in Ireland.Large firebox,excellent heating stove.It is in full time use from October to April and as needed to take the chill off at other times.We cook and bake with it,the oven is easy to regulate but ,as mentioned,you need to pay attention when baking.They sell new for $6k which is crazy money,I bought ours off CL for $750.00.

Like many of the previous methods of living life a cookstove would be a more labour intensive, knowledge based version than what most of us are used to now. I would like to try it to see how I do without being committed to having to do it.

My grandparents had the biggest one I have ever seen. It was supposed to have come out of the schoolhouse at Brady Texas. An uncle traded them out of it and sold it off in the late 70's, I would love to haave that thing now.  They moved three times while they owned it, and as luck would have it I got in on moving that thing every time, talking about a hernia machine.

My grandmother heated with wood stoves until she was over 80 years old .Tough old bird,split wood until she was 80 too .When the corn used to be  picked and later shelled she burned a lot of cobs .Evidently her rugged life style caused an early death at 96 years of age .She cooked with "bottle gas" maybe that's why she didn't make it to a hundred .Go granny go  :)

We bought a new cook stove a few years ago and love it.  It is called a kitchen queen.  They make 2 sizes, a big one and a bigger one.  We got the bigger one. :D

We were looking at different brands of cook stoves and they all were in the 5,000-10,000 dollar range and were not that great.  We stumbled upon the kitchen queen when I was trying to get parts for a queen stove company lantern HAHA.  The kitchen queen stove company popped up and I knew that was the one.  This baby weighs 1,000 lbs and cranks out heat like crazy.  I have added more firebrick to the firebox and that helped a lot.

The house runs about 85 in the winter and we burn about 4 cord a year in this drafty old farm house.  We could get by with half as much wood and be at 65, but why do that when you can have 85?  I think this stove puts out 150,000+btu.  It cooks pizza in about 3 minutes and makes the best food you ever had.  It also eats whole rounds if you need it to.  Gotta love a 5 cubic foot firebox.
It took me a while to get used to the huge firebox.  I kept filling it the first year.  That stove will take a whole wheelbarrow load of wood at one time! ;D

LONG LIVE THE COOK STOVE!!!!

One thing I like about this one is the way the flue gasses travel.  They go under the oven and then up and out.  Lots better for keeping creosote down.

My paternal grandmother used one til the day she died, unfortunately, she was only 64, had a stroke. Her stove burned either wood or coal and it was fairly large. I think it had 2 ovens and 6 or maybe even 8 burners. It also had a water heater that hung or was part of the stove on one side. It was rather large likely because she had 12 kids and a husband to feed at one time. Gramps died when I was 7 of black lung from working in the coal mines for 3 weeks before getting out and moving to Central NY to farm it, Gram died 6 years later, when I was only 14.
I do remember her baking bread and rolls in one of the ovens but don't recall if it was the big oven or the smaller one.

That is a good looking stove. Made in Serbia? Or someplace else in Europe?
