Dream stove. what would you do?

PostBy: slinger100 On: Thu Jan 23, 2014 1:44 pm

Okay guys, it's the middle of winter so let's start a debate. If you could have only 1 stove to use but you could have your pick of any stove ever made free of cost. What would you choose and why? What is your "Holy Grail"?Go! :D. Matt

Just one stove ? Is this just for heating, or does that include not having a kitchen gas stove to cook on if someone chooses a box stove ?

For one stove, I'd have to be in a smaller place than I have now.

And, with the power outages we sometimes get here in winter, . . .

It would be a large, coal kitchen range, with a water reservoir. Provides heat and also cooks, bakes, grills. And, while it's doing all that, it's also heating gallons of hot water to wash the dishes. And it keeps on doing all of that during power outages.

I think for the pure beauty it would be a "Red Cross Ensign", I would save 70.00 bucks a month on cable! It really is a toss with that pageant winner and a Glenwood 116 base burner is looks like Fred Smerlas in a dress, a true blue collar heating machine!

Geez, that's a tough one. I've been around a lot of stoves, and I've never had a stove that performed as well as the Hitzer 50-93. Just seams as though I should be picking an older cast iron stove of some sort. But, I'm going to have to stick with the proven performer, Hitzer 50-93.

Mine would have to be a Wherle 100. My hometown is also where the Wherle factory was. I would love to bring one of these stoves back to it's home. Matt

Are we talking strictly stoves or do boilers and furnaces count as well?
