G&S Stovetop Oven..

Postby realityguy » Fri Apr 01, 2011 9:06 pm

Found this at a thrift store today:

Image

Called a Stovetop Oven..Should be great for over those woodstoves!It has a difusser bottom with a small well in the middle for adding a small amount of water to retain some moisture and a lid like a cake cover so you can bake potatoes or anything else right on top of your Kitchen stove rather than in the oven..Anyway..it should work perfect over a small woodstove!Put out By G&S Metal Products Co./Cleveland,OH 44127.The Bon Marche price was $8+(I got mine for $4).
Basic instructions are included for defrosting and baking frozen foods,steaming vegetables,baking with just tinfoil(to prevent spillage into the difusser base),or pans..or just throwing a couple spuds in there.
It does add "To prevent burning food,bake only at low or medium heat".(Preheat on high for 3-5 minutes)..so it should work over alcohol stoves or wood coals if you are careful and watchful...
Under the lid you have 8" across X 2-1/4" at the edges(a little higher in the middle)..weighs in right at 1lb. :DB: :DB: :dinner:

Appears it may no longer be available..looking at their website..Stock # 32-T..made in the good ol' USA..probably why it's no longer made! :roll: Why is it all the good stuff disappears?????
Yeah..I'll have fun baking with it!
Maybe if someone begs and pleads with them they'll fire them up again as "camp bakers"...

Oh..and it does have a nice little wire handle off the diffuser portion for pulling it off your wood stove.

This appears to be somewhat close-->(googled "Potato baker")

Yup, I, like Oops56, have two and one still had the labeling on it like Cuz's. I have even passed on a few since I bought those two. Also like Oops56, I have not tried mine out and am not even sure of their location at the present time :oops: :lol:

It is a little big and a little heavy but has great potential ;)

This is hilarious! I just found a heat diffuser in a bargain bin today and brought it home for testing on alcohol and wood stoves! :D

I thought about one of those..now you just need a proper lid.Use a pudding ring pan inside and add a small metal cap or wedding favor tin of water in the center..you'll have the same thing or close to it...
