I have built a few pure sine inverters. As a matter of fact I have a 300 watt "in stock". I built a 300 watt for a friend with a Pioneer & it works fine.

The above cost me about $650 and here is what I have done with it...
I am able to run a large floor fan, refrdgerator, entertainment system, TV and CFL's for about 6 hours before the battery pool drops to 40%.
My Koker will run on it for about 24 hours.
I am not concerned about hydrogen with these wet cells charging as I use the smart charger at 6amps and the batteries do not even get warm...I don't even use the float charge just put it on and off the charger every two weeks.
I keep everything in my finished basement including the batteries..it is no problem.
Anyway, have any questions let me know!

Here's a wiring diagram and a couple of pics of a 300 watt that I built.

To answer your question, the two batteries should run the stove for around 8 hours. The only way to know is to actually try it, but, better math will give a closer answer. The kill-a-watt devices actually don't work all that well on motors. They work great on light bulbs & TV's but not refrigerators and vacuum cleaners. Get a reading from a quality ammeter if you want to play with the math. .
