Stoves: The real thing

Reviewed by:

For a truly vintage kitchen, this coal-burning cookstove is both beautiful and practical. Built by a company that started doing business in 1852, this 565-pound appliance was inspired by original molds and historic hand-carved wooden patterns. Nickel trim and cherry handles highlight the exterior and the oven's interior has a porcelain finish.

Optional attachments for hot water heating include a copper reservoir or a cast-iron water front (heat exchanger). Not suited for small kitchens, this stove requires 18" of clearance on the rear and 21" on the sides. Price is $3,665 and includes poker, lid lifter, ash scraper and grate shaker (November 2004).
