Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A wood cookstove, for me?

Sure, if you like delicious food, want to save money, and believe that a stove should do more than cook food.

But isn't it difficult to use?

There are some techniques to learn, and they're described in this book. Take Jane Cooper's warm hand and be guided into the world of woodstove cookery. You'll learn how to buy a stove, new or used, how to set it up, how to fuel it for various uses, how to keep it clean and in peak operating condition.

And how to cook on it?

Yes, a lot about that. And dozens of recipes, with emphasis on cooking best adapted to the kitchen range -- baking bread that tastes as good as it smells, cooking stews that gain goodness in hours on the back of the stove, roasting meats. Mouthwatering dishes that would make even Grandma envious. And you know how Grandma used to cook.

Who is the author, Jane Cooper?

She 's a professional writer with a lot of experience using a wood range. Before writing this she called on wood cookstove cooks across the nation, and they responded with recipes, ideas, warnings, hints. Only then did she sit down -- at the kitchen table, of course -- and write this book that is a source of both knowledge and enjoyment.

About the Author

When I first bought a house in the Blue Ridge Mountains I found that (being built in 1810) the most efficient and economical way to heat it was with wood. So although I didn't buy this book for the cooking aspects (which proved nice anyway), it was INDISPENSABLE for a beginning wood-burner. You get the low down on maintenance, safety, and a host of other must-have information. Should be required reading with every wood burning stove/heater purchase. Two thumbs up.

I bought this book in March 2000, right after we purchased a refurbished Elmira Sweetheart style wood cookstove. It is the perfect companion to using the woodstove for heating, cooking, or both. There are detailed descriptions of all the components of the stove, plus how to clean it and what type of wood to use for best results. It also has a bit of amusing history, and lots of tasty recipes. This is the only book you need for learning to use your wood cookstove efficiently.

I bought this book because we have a woodstove for heating the house. I was hoping this book would show me how to cook and bake using it, rather than my electric stove, for times we lose electricity or to save money (no reason to use an electric stove, if my woodstove is already going.) It's geared towards a woodstove with cooking lids, like Ma Ingalls had. It still has recipes that I can use, like for stews or chilis using the Dutch oven or skillet. It has a lot of information about the proper installation, ways to install an oven or a smoker and how to buy a used one at an auction or flea market (what to look for, how to repair it and how to say "no way, I'll pass" on ones that have what looks like a minor flaw, but actually render the stove useless. It also has numerous addresses for replacement parts that you may need to order, if you have something become inoperable on the one you own.) I think it's a good investment if you actually intend to alter recipes to work on a heat-producing woodstove, rather than a cookstove. If you don't want to try the try-and fail method for the heat-producing stove, then pass on the book. Personally, I like it.

We are building a house and I am considering using a wood cook stove outside on the patio, to be used during the summer months, when the inside electric stove would heat up the house, so I bought this book as an introduction to using one.
This book covers a lot of ground, including new and used stoves, various types of wood for fuel, coal stoves, how to operate the stove, recipes, and a whole host of other topics. Now I can't wait to buy a stove and get 'cookin'.

We own a very old wood cook stove handed down from my mother in law. It looks great in our country kitchen! But more than that, it is a useful part of our home. We use it to add heat in the winter and I enjoy learning to cook on it. Before this book, most of my cooking had been keeping a stew or soup simmering on the top. With the help of Woodstove Cookery I have learned tips about the upkeep of the stove as well as recipes I had never dreamed of trying on it.

I purchased this book while doing research on the possibility of replacing an aging kitchen gas stove with one which utilized wood for fuel. I have been looking into more self-reliant appliances, and I am situated in an area where wood is cheap or free, thereby lowering or eliminating fuel costs. This was one of the few books I could find, specifically on using a wood stove for cooking, and while it is small, it is full of useful information, and even contains some recipes. Most helpful for me was the understanding of just how much space a wood cook stove requires, and that helped me to come to the reluctant decision that this is not something I can accommodate. So, for the price of this book, I was able to eliminate a large and costly item from my "wish-list" and move on to other choices. Even tho I had discussed this subject with friends that use wood heat in their homes, I found that sitting down with a book that took no sides, and had no agendas other than to pass along relevant information helped more than everything else combined. If you are considering a wood cook stove, I highly recommend reading this book. It will give you a very clear idea of what's required, and what it can do for you.

Helpful for learning how to cook "the old way." I bought this book for ideas on what or how to cook on a wood burning stove, as opposed to a wood cook-stove . Though most of the recipes are geared toward an actual cook-stove, I found some very helpful ideas.
