I just did a forum search on wood cookstoves, and it looks like Pioneer Maid and Baker's Choice come out way ahead. For those of you that have either of them, several questions: My Lehman's catalog says the tops are "steel, not stainless". Are they a pain to keep clean, do you even try to keep them shiny, how does it work? The Pioneer Maid has a full porcelain finish, the catalog says. Have you had any trouble with cracking or chipping? Also, the Lehman's blurb says that "customers...often complain about nonaligned seams and rough finishes that may show weld spatter. (For example, the air controls work well but wobble when you turn them)." Do the nonaligned seams cause problems with doors closing right or something? Smoke leakage? Or is it merely cosmetic? If the air controls wobble when turned it suggests to me that they may be loose and thus not controlling air as precisely as may be wished. Is this the case or is it again just a little persnickety thing? Finally, does anybody know of a dealer in the pacific NW or NW Canada who carries these stoves? Thanks.
