Well, the days are getting chilly here and after much debating over brands and models, gadgets, air flows, fire box sizes, and other amenities, we've finally ordered the wood cook stove! There was really never any contest between the brands... I just fell in love with the Kitchen Queen immediately. Yes, I would have liked a flame view door, who doesn't like to look at all those toasty flames? But my practical nature wouldn't trade beauty for function. A new stove is a big investment these days, all that function doesn't come cheaply! There were several options with this stove...two sizes, colors, water tanks and a coil, summer grate, warming oven.... what to choose? Well, we decided to forgo the mounted on back water reservoir, the white enamel and the stainless coil. We ordered the smaller 380 model, in black enamel, with a summer grate and the warming oven. Am I satisfied with those choices? I surely hope so!!!
