Well it seems to be working slowly but workingWe don’t bother, only a water pot. A heating stove like one pictured, it’s not very efficient for cooking, it takes ages, unless you have a slow pot on, with prolonged fire. Firebox needs to be hotter, ash grill higher and baffle out. Otherwise takes ages, as it’s designed for heating, not cooking. A cooking stove it’s quite different, with no baffle to the cooking plate, a baffle it’s right at the stove exit, or in the pipe as it exits the stove.
In a cooking stove, the height of the fire box it’s small, so the fire is concentrated on the plate above, the one you cooking on. My opinion anyway.
We have a enameld cast iron pan with lid like a Dutch oven heavy duty it dose lovely rosty spuds.Wildbill you can get a jacket potatoe cooker to stand on stove off ebay
Thanks since starting this thread we have done loads of things.Don't understand some of the comments made here, ie. if it's made for heating then it gives off heat.
Our multi-fuel stove will boil water just as fast as the electric kettle, we cook on ours all the time, obviously fried food is covered.
Using trivets will allow simmering, if the coals are low and glowing we open the door using a cast iron frying pan direct on top of the coals cooks fillet steaks in minutes.
Do you have ther eBay link I have been on ther weeb site but can't find itCharnwood have a cooking plate that sits in the vent that exits the top (you have to have rear exiting flue fitted…) 2 sizes depending on hole. I fitted one for our morso wood burner with a bit of adjustment with an angle grinder to the plate…
the plate gets much hotter than just the top of the stove did, haven’t tried it yet for cooking but should be ok if wanted for slow simmer of a stew or similar. Noticed that it has ‘calmed down’ the air flow a little when fully open when lighting which probably isn’t a bad thing as it roared like a jet engine if you let it before.
