    Check out Macrobazar.com. Yes, they still make and sell wood cook stoves and heaters. They are made in Mexico from the original molds. Macrobazar ships all over Mexico and the US. They have a warehouse in El Paso, and they probably are a lot cheaper than that glitzy company.

    Last year I set up my mother's old stove on the patio. It had been in storage for over fifty years. It is the one she brought from Chihuahua. I had trouble finding the stove pipe and fittings. None of the local hardware stores had them. It turns out that the old snap tight stove pipes are now illegal.

    Make sure you can acquire the pipes, dampers and other fittings before you purchase the stove.

    And yes, they are still making copies of my mother's old stove.

    I love their appliances too. When we get ready to build our log home, I'm doing the kitchen with those. Frugal had mentioned Heartland to me sometime back in another post about cookstoves. They do a beautiful job.

    We have an actual turn of the century cookstove in our farnhouse. (My grandfather helped us 'shop' for it used about 15 yrs ago.) When we build, our farmhouse will be used for farm business and as a guesthouse. So we'll leave our that stove in the farmhouse kitchen. Here's a pic

    We're getting ready to cook pork & sauerkraut in the oven, a pot of blackeye peas and a pot of collards on the back of the stove for New Year's today.

    I'll check out Macrobazar.com. A little shopping can't hurt!

    You might find this link interesting ~~ Lehman's Non-Electric Catalog (I get a kick out of the fact that the non-electric place has a website !)
