I love this stove! It burns very efficiently, and the soapstone on the sides continues to kick out warmth long after the fire is out. It's beautiful to watch the fire through the window. I am still experimenting with controlling the heat in the oven, but I have successfully cooked dinners, bread and cookies in it. I have not been as successful burning coal in it. I have trouble keeping the coal fire going but wood works great. The firebox is short, but the narrower stove fits better in my small home. One load of wood heats my whole house during a minnesota winter. It's a very sturdy appliance and I think I will have a lifetime of use out of it.

Magnum Wood Cook Stove
June 20, 2019
Otis Pilford from Fairbanks, OK
I've been using the Magnum cook stove for three years. It has the highest efficiency available, 87% efficiency. It's made in Croatia, great quality enamel finish, colorful and distinctive, I've received lots of compliments. This stove will match your decor with two sets of door handles, black and wood finish. Works great! It has a learning curve when starting the fire, so it takes a little practice at first. I don't bake but the range has performed perfectly with an iron skillet. The food turns out great every time.
