same here, I probably never had a 'new' anything :D but that is a pretty gorgeous unit, it's so pretty I thought it was a piece of doll furniture ;) .

how many fires does it take to season(?) the thing, or do you even have to do that?

You can find old used ones on craigslist and in the papers. Be prepared to strip it down, sandblast and re-cement it back together. Saw this one posted locally for $500. Fellow said it was all there (except for the base), sound and not pitted but we’ll see tomorrow. It’s a mite fancier than what I would like buy hey, a good stove is a good stove!

Sorry, couldn't include the pic but it is nickle plated all over.

For those of you looking for an extremely functional and attractive new cook stove, check out the Pioneer Princess.

We had a hundred year old cook stove in our kitchen for almost 25 years until it got so many cracks that it just had to go. About 3 years ago we started researching lots of different stoves and finally we bought a Pioneer Princess.

It is an airtight stove with a large firebox, a mechanical thermostat, a 52 inch top, bread warmer, large oven and a water reservoiur. It not only heats our whole house -- we use almost half the amount of wood compared to the old stove. It costs about $2200, but it should last a lifetime and save you lots of money that would otherwise be spent on fuel oil.

The thermostat is particularly nice because you can chuck it full of wood at bedtime and it will just simmer until the thermostat opens and gets the fire going. It will shut it back down when things heat up. Being an airtight means you have to clean your chimney regularly, tho.

Some folks told us last week this is an opulent luxury. We see it as a necessity.
Then we get some that ask us how can you afford such things?
Easy.... We don't have children to raise, buy Louis Vitton purses, go to football games, drink alcohol, buy wii's or any other video game venue, we have never used drugs, bought new trucks as our are both 10 years old, etc or have credit card debt..........
Just in case someone asks..........................................
