Product Description Technical Specs
Obadiah's is no longer selling Kitchen Queen stoves - This page is for informational purposes only.

The Kitchen Queen 380 has a 17 gallon (the 480 has a 24 gallon) water reservoir system, that heats water from the radiant heat of the stove. A water coil can be installed into the firebox and plumbed to the water reservoir. The cold water enters the firebox through a heat exchanger (water coil) and converts it to hot water, with no moving parts or electricity. The heat exchanger can be connected to a large hot water tank for whole house use.

The huge oven is the heart of the stove. Revolutionary design makes total sense, yet is the total opposite of every wood cookstove on the market. Other stoves try to pull the smoke over the top of the oven, down the side, around the bottom, and then back out the top. Heat rises naturally, it makes more sense to vent the firebox off the side so
the heat travels under the oven, up the side, over the top, and out the flue. This also significantly reduces the creosote build up which can be difficult to clean out.

5 of 5 overjoyed with 380 December 19, 2014
Reviewer: Guy and Jana Gardner from Idaho Panhandle  
This is our first wood cook stove and we were certainly confused about the subject until we found Obadiah's. I had a mountain of questions before I started reading Woody's web site and watching all of his extensive videos. By the time I started to contact Obadiah's staff I really had just one question. How soon can it be at our door? Everyone, including Woody has been a joy to work with and I will again! The Queen it self is perfect. The right size, easy to learn and use, and it is exactly as advertise. They may even have understated the quality! Thanks Obadiah's, we could not be happier.

3 of 5 Great Stove after i fixed the Supercharger. October 1, 2014
Reviewer: Mark Skaggs from Applegate Or.  
i wish it was taller even after sitting on a brick hearth still sits to low for some one 5' 9" tall. the oven works great, the supercharger was a bust and never did work at all !!. i had to open the ash pan door to get a good draft under the wood to get it going.  on the left side of the ash pan door i installed an air vent that looks just like the one in the fire box door above that can be turned to open or close to regulate the amount of air going under the fire box .  i took matters into my own hands on this because between purchasing the stove and having a hearth and brick heat shield built for the walls i'm into this thing for around a 6K investment and it wasn't working properly kinda ridiculous that i have to start cutting and welding and drilling on a new stove to make it work properly but since there is no customer support for 1500 or more miles what choice do you have ?.

5 of 5 Great Stove for a great price!! September 23, 2013
Reviewer: Kai Moessle from Cairo NY  
I bought the smaller Kitchen Queen from Obadiah's almost two years ago. It was delivered last July (the factory had a bit of a backlog) in perfect condition; the crate was so sturdy it took two of us about fifteen minutes with a prybar just to get one side off.

I finally got it installed this spring and it is AWESOME!!!! The firebox is the best I have ever used, it takes huge logs and holds a fire well over the advertised eight hours (I have beech wood, dried about a year). The "Supercharger" works just as they say: I had a good fire and the oven was at about 250 degrees F when I opened it; within five minutes the temperature went up to 475!

If you have the summer grate (well worth the money in the summer!) be sure to use small, split wood as dry as possible.

Overall, I could not be happier with my KQ!

Finally, the customer service folks here at Obadiah's are right on top of their game and one of the friendliest I have ever talked to!

5 of 5 The Right Combination of Beauty and Utility September 4, 2013
Reviewer: Carol Nelson from Milaca, MN United States  
This is a heavy, well built stove. It was well wrapped and crated and arrived in perfect condition.
It is simple and understated in design yet has thoughtful details that make it beautiful as well as functional.
The oven interior is easy to keep clean. The thermometer in the oven door makes it easy to keep the right temperature, especially for a wood-cooking beginner like me. I was surprised at how easy it was to cook with. My first dinner using the stovetop and oven turned out perfectly! (I read and learned to use smaller chunks of wood to get a hotter, better controlled fire.)
The grate in the bottom of the firebox makes it very easy to clean out ashes.
The rails that go around the outside are helpful to avoid burns from getting too close. The buyer should keep in mind that the stainless top will darken with use, but the rails and trim stays clean and bright.
Every detail of this stove seems to be well thought out and well implemented. We could not be more pleased.

5 of 5 Great Cookstove! August 28, 2013
Reviewer: Hugh Owens from Jackson WY  
Our Kitchen Queen 380  arrived intact in a sturdy plywood box. The fit and finish were superb. Once I had the "Queen" up and running, I was blown away by its combustion efficiency and heat output which heats our large log cabin.   I modified the KQ, installing additional firebrick on all firebox surfaces. The fire burns with a blue flame once established. My criticisms of the stove are minimal.  It is a VERY heavy stove. It could use a small viewing glass to keep track of the fire. The oven door thermometer reads 50 degrees low. The oven on the 380 is just big enough to be useful. My old cookstove had a large oven and a small firebox. Large firebox trumps large oven!  I would recommend anyone wanting to cook with wood to consider this stove. This kind of heating and cooking appliance is a vital component to achieving a measure of self sufficiency in these troubled economic times. I would regard it as your second purchase after a good chainsaw.
