Baker's Oven Wood Stove

From Down Under, a classic wood stove with a bonus cooking compartment

Nectre Fireplaces, a division of Pecan Engineering in Dry Creek , Australia , has engineered a classic wood stove that combines outstanding heat output with the convenience of an oven. The Baker's Oven wood stove uses modern manufacturing processes and materials in its unique two compartment design. The top and bottom compartments feature cast-iron doors and large ceramic glass viewing windows, with the top compartment being the firebox, and the bottom an oven. In addition, the Baker's Oven has a cook top that can hold four large pots or pans and two removable rings that make wok cooking and direct heat a snap.

The Baker's Oven wood stove is built for slow combustion and offers a 1-year limited warranty. Some of the features you will find with a Baker's Oven are listed below:

  • Thermal mass is increased by the use of fire bricks, which in turn stabilize temperatures
  • Replaceable firebox protection plates
  • Ash lip that prevents fire debris from falling into oven or out of stove
  • Oven thermometer
  • Door handles that stay cool
  • Minimal cleaning dependant on type of wood used (as little as once every six weeks)

Principally as a wood stove, the Baker's Oven employs the principles of radiant heat, whereby air enters through the door to the firebox and directly to the fire's mass. At the top of the door, another inlet lets a precise amount of supplementary air to enter, carrying out additional combustion of unused flue gases. Resultant high temperatures and efficient combustion are then maintained by the fire bricks in the firebox. Not only is it efficient, but the Baker's Oven is also safe to operate, as the cast-iron door utilizes an airtight seal and specially designed door handles and controls stay cool to the touch.
