    Put an add in the local papers and buy a good used cook stove first to see if you really like them. Herself couldn't and wouldn't live without one.

    My father in law has a stove that he is going to be selling. It is a Heartland. It is still in the crate so I will have to go and see which model (oval or sweetheart). I think that it is the oval model 1903 with resevoir. It has the water jacket, heat sheild, and fresh air kit. If you have any questions send me an email bootbuilder@hotmail.com

    I have a 1960's Monarch wood/electric cook stove for sale. $75 white enamel with a shelf on top. If you are interested, pm me with your e-mail address and I can send you a photo.

    Mary Ann,

    Current issue of Countryside has an advertisement for the Pioneer Maid cookstove. See page 121.

    Look over the archives to read my previous rave reviews of this stove. In short it is an excellent choice and I would pay the price to buy another.

    Herself is currently using a Heartland Sweetheart (it took her a long time to talk me into spending so much on a new stove, but when she pointed to my new barn and herd of cattle I got the hint). She had been using a old wood and LP gas combo, and still has it. We've had quite a number of used wood ranges during our 33+ years together.

    I've seen a lot of people buy wood cook stove and then stop using it because it's not "instant" as are gas and electric, but once one is grows accustomed to the care a feeding of the wood range, there's nothing better.

    There are literally thousands of old wood cook stoves hiding out in garages and barns across the country; and their usually very cheap.

    Glenda: Just do a search using "wood cookstoves". There are hundreds of dealers out there. I got my Sheepherder cookstove from transoceanltd.com. Enjoy the search. Tim in SC.

    I got my stove on ebay. It's a vogelzang and was brand new. It works really nice. Nothing fancy mind you just a black stove but does great! I love it! It was won on ebay for $510 and then $140 for shipping so I have $650 in a brand new stove. I think it was congofireplace.com who had it listed. The oven door is 13"x10". Has the warming oven and all. You can also go to the website vogelzang.com Hope that helps!!
