The Kitchen Queen includes finger-tip damper controls and a beautifully finished porcelain oven with easy ash removal and an optional large water reservoir. The The Kitchen Queen 480 has a 24 gallon water reservoir system, that heats from the radiant heat on the stove. You can also connect the reservoir to a water coil installed into the firebox. The water is then heated via a water siphon system. 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. It is not recommended to connect a coil to a reservoir unless there is a large daily demand for hot water. Please consult a boiler specialist for this type of installation.

The huge oven is the heart of the stove. This 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 Kitchen Queen 380 March 2, 2015
Reviewer: Jim from Sequim, Washington (Carlsborg)  
We have heated and cooked with wood most of our lives (73 years). Without exception the Kitchen Queen is the the best stove for all purposes than anything else we have ever had. Once it was up and running and we got the feel for fine tuning it, we were so happy with our choice. It is so easy to fine tune the heat for both cooking and heating. The house is so richly warmed by this stove, which is rated to heat up to 1500 sq. ft., but in the Pacific Northwest it would easily heat a much larger space if were insulated at all.  
In the morning when I get up to a warm house, I rake the coals together in the firebox, add some small wood to get things going again, and in about 20 minutes I have coffee brewing. If there is a better wood cookstove being made anywhere, I would like to see it.
Call me at 360-565-6527 if you want to talk about the details. If you're in the market for one stove that does it all very well, BUY THIS STOVE.  Jim

5 of 5 Not one regret January 3, 2015
Reviewer: Tisha Morgan from North Alabama  
I bought this stove about 5 years ago and it didn't take long to realize the craftsmanship that went into it.  We sold the house soon afterwards and almost had a deal breaker when the realtor failed to tell the buyers that it wasn't going to stay.  It's in the new house now and I couldn't be happier with its performance.

5 of 5 The Queen of Cookstoves December 2, 2014
Reviewer: Debbie & Roger from Canby, CA  
Hello Annette and all the Folks at Obadiahs that help us get our wood stove,

           Thank You for all your hard work getting us our wood stove and chimney parts! We finally got all the bits and pieces of the chimney and our stove has been up and keeping us warm and fed for over a week now. In the end the one chimney piece that we had to wait for was delivered by an old friend of ours who usually drives for UPS in another area. We made contact with him and his family again which was a great bonus.
           Thanks again for sticking with this and providing a great wood cook stove. I will attach a picture of it installed.

5 of 5 Excellent Crafted; Totally Satisfied January 22, 2014
Reviewer: J S from South Mountain, PA  
Hello again,

 I was just sitting here and thanking God for the wonderful heat this wood cook stove puts out. This makes the 3rd year we have been using the Kitchen Queen; and what a cook stove. This year has had some very cold days and with a wind chill down as low as –25 below. I have bought fuel oil back in the first week of November and haven’t bought any since; where before we would have had the tank filled once a month. Thanks to the people who labor to make our comfort here in PA. What a blessing we have received. In the past 3 years this Kitchen Queen has saved us several thousand dollars. It heats our home with ease, plus we use it for cooking and baking. My wife now would rather use the Kitchen Queen to cook on than our electric stove. We have had no problems at all; I mean "0" problems! I can’t tell you enough how much we are pleased with the purchase of this excellent crafted product . The quality is just outstanding, and the best money I ever spent. One truly happy customer here in PA.
Please share this note with everyone involved, because they truly need a pat on the back.

May God truly bless you all and may the new year be fruitful in the Lord.
