Erica and Ernie--thank you for taking the time to answer our questions.

I am drawn to the efficiencies and cleanness promised by RMH, and I'm sure my wife would love the heated bench. However, she hates the idea of the oil barrel and the mud design. I see a few people have already posted questions about that, and I will look into the answers there.

But I grew up enjoying the flames in my parent's stove, and watched my mom heat a teakettle, warm soup, etc.
1. Are there designs where the RMH can be used for cooking/baking?
2. Have you seen good designs where you can watch the fire?
3. Is the fire worth watching? It seems that a horizontal jet-flame that appears to be the core of it, will not be so relaxing to observe.

Thank you

This is my favorite window on a rocket stove. I don't know the details of the system (don't read Japanese) but I'm sure this sort of thing could be an inspiration to other systems. Man. Watching those flames just flowing into the burn tunnel...so beautiful.
 
We should throw him a surprise party. It will cheer him up. We can use this tiny ad:
