Not sure on the temp in the oven came with a thermometer that is less than precise. The dial is very big. The stove top temp was 500*. The lasagna was too big so I got out a meat cleaver I have and scrubbed up my hammer with scotchbrite and soap and smacked the frozen lasagna a couple of times and cut it into one larger piece and one smaller. I modified the original foil for the large piece and put the small piece in a bake pan. The stove has 2 racks. The small piece was on the bottom and it cooked in less than 2 hours. The larger piece was on the top and when I took out the smaller piece I moved it to the bottom. I have been working outside and kinda didn't really worry about it. I think it would be difficult to burn anything because I think the internal temp of what you are cooking won't get over around 160. I just removed the big piece a couple of hours after I ate the smaller piece and checked the temperature and took these pictures. I am going to keep it covered & in the oven so it will be hot when my wife gets home. Nice thing is whether I am using it or not it just sits there and radiates heat. No need to preheat just stick it in and bake.

My dad built one many moons ago and it worked great on his wood stove . My mother used it for baking beans all during the wood burning season . I don't remember what else they used it for .

Ive seen some old rusty antique ones at yard sales and whatnot (but this one is more modern, chrome oven racks, window view, etc.)... I wonder how much they are?

Thanks for the link! Would this oven work well with any of the hand fired stoves that have a hopper, or would it be best used with stoves that don't have hoppers?

i'm not sure about hopper stoves. i could put it on the hopper cover of the DSM 1400 but doubt with much success. the hopper has a primary door and an air wash cover, not much heat up thru that area.

here's another novel concept
