The Benefits of Wood Cook Stoves

By: Peter Emerson

Wood cook stoves have been used for hundreds of years. Before the advent of electricity, people cooked all of their food in wood cook stoves. Wood cook stoves are still used in many parts of the world, such as Central and South America. Some people still choose to use wood cook stoves to conserve energy or to get the great taste of food cooked over an open fire.


Wood cook stoves are large, elaborately designed structures. They need to include room for the wood, so they are bigger than gas or electric stoves. Wood cook stoves often look similar to conventional stoves. They have the oven at the bottom and cooking ranges on the top of the oven. Many wood cook stoves even have a hood area not unlike those found on conventional ovens that can be used for storage. Wood cook stoves are made of high quality cast iron for durability. Cast iron can with stand the heat produced by the fire and will not show external signs of wear and tear. The wood fire heats both the oven and the cooking ranges.


Wood cook stoves are great for energy conservation. Wood is less expensive than gas or electricity. People can find their own wood, or they can buy firewood from a store. Many people in rustic areas use wood cook stoves in order to remain completely self-sufficient. They can fuel the stove with wood from their property and not even have to use electricity.


Many people like the flavor of food cooked over wood. A large number of restaurants use wood cook stoves to prepare their food. Food cooked over wood has a more natural and distinct flavor than wood cooked with gas or electricity.


Wood cook stoves are a great alternative to conventional gas or electric stoves. They save energy and can make food taste much better.
