Vintage cooking

What if we are going through the 21st century, aren't this vintage stoves beautiful? (I don't know if they are user-friendly, however. You are most welcome to tell us your experience if you own one!)

  1. That dog is adorable! Can't imagine using these kind of stoves now...but they sure look cool.

    I was born and brought up in the heart of Africa - Zambia now - and my grandmother had a tobacco farm there too where we spent family Christmases etc. She cooked everything in and on that wood-burning stove. Meringues, flaky pies, cakes that melted in the mouth and delicious scones and other wondrous meals ! How she got it right I'll never know coz I can't bake a decent cookie in my electric one now. When the servants fed the stove-belly it looked to me, who was eye-level to the flaming insides, like Dante's Inferno....hehe great memories, fantastic food !

  3. My parents have a green one at home (I live in Yorkshire in the UK) and they are amazing to cook with. It takes a while to get used to the fact you have to play around with timings for cooking as you cant change its temperature, but in the winter when it's freezing there is nothing better than sitting beside the Aga!
