Wood Cook Stove Kitchen Range Heartland Oval

WOO HOO - WHO IS READY TO LIVE OFF THE GRID ... ? WHOA , WHOA , WHOA , there folks ! Before we start talking about living off the grid I would like to take a moment and say a little something about truth in advertising !


I have to admit that me even mentioning "living off the grid" is probably intended to make it sound like you need this stove to survive ... that is not true . But your grandmother probably did and she probably never even heard about the "grid" or the "interweb" but I guarantee she enjoyed her life as much or even more than you and I - without a "grid" . Did she suffer ? Hard to say . But I would be willing to bet she worked hard. And I would be will willing to bet she ate good food that she made. I would even bet she kept pretty warm and that she loved and cared for her husband and children in a home with a stove similar to this and made some memories that we will never be able to comprehend. And I bet she did not complain but was thankful for her wonderful life and family. Did she live off the grid ? A first thought would say HELL YA SHE DID ! But upon more thorough reflection Perhaps she just lived ! That was just the way things were done in those days . Now about this stove ... Is it an outdated piece of historical memorabilia to be viewed with reverence and awe for the place it holds in our past ? HARDLY or you would not be viewing this listing . This is a sophisticated appliance engineered by men with vision and driven by the pride that fueled the industrial revolution . It can do most of the things that happen in any modern day kitchen that will require dozens of gadgets and electrical appliances to accomplish. it can provide a steady supply of hot water, it is a heater, it has infinite heat control from proofing your bread dough to boiling water , simmering a soup broth , warming frozen kids , husbands & neighbors as well as all of their mittens scarves and boots. It can keep a runt piglet warm until he can rejoin his brothers , and the cat wouldn't sleep anywhere else . ( like my dad who slept beside the wood stove throughout the entire winter to keep us warm. AND OH YA ! it was not all roses and and fresh baked rolls ! We carried a lot of wood and so will you) I did not appreciate it at the time but I was being taught how to live - and yes I still carry wood as an old man to keep my kitchen range fired ... the only difference now is that I smile while I do it and wish I could still carry some wood in for my own old man LOL . Live off the grid Live on the grid Live Half on the Grid and Half off the grid ... BUT take the time to smell the roses and the fresh baked rolls , and be sure you huff a little wood smoke too along the way so like your grandma you too can say that you REALLY LIVED ! Here is your chance to own the CLEANEST Heartland oval you will find ( just look at the water tank and the oven top - simply not found in this kind of condition ) My Son and I rebuild wood stoves but we did not do a single thing to this beauty it is exactly as we received it . I suspect it was a showroom model in it's former life The Findlay Oval / Elmira Oval / Heartland Oval / Elmira Sweet heart are the Cadillac of wood ranges and this one has all the options including copper water tank and side tap and top warmer Production was permanently discontinued in 2018 so not avail new and longer This Model had a retail value of over $12,000 plus taxes and delivery The OVAL is a famous wood cook stove / kitchen range / kitchen cook stove and was originally manufactured by Findlay in Carleton place Ontario it is still the industry standard for wood cook stoves and is a beloved favorite . The rights were later sold to Elmira stove works who made them for many years and then ultimately sold to Heartland Oval who still carries each part for these historic beauties 25 yrs old and appears to have never been fired and comes with Operation / installation manual Perfect addition to you home. Nothing is like cooking on this wood fired kitchen cook stove. Makes the meal so much better like grandma did. Great heat source and most of all very beautiful family heritage stove Specs: height : 32 inches to cook top overall : 62 inches to top of warmer wide : 32 inches
