I have used my stove for cooking as much as heating. But this year I installed if for good in a small one room building. I have a cooking stone on the top of the bell and a twin bowl on the top of the stone. I was trying to take the heat from around the bell and move it into the cooking chamber. So I added copper sheet metal around the bell. I added 1" copper pipe to the bell last year. Now with the 1" gap between the sheet copper and the bell, I have a nice amount of heat that moves up to a new larger 22" stainless steel bowl on top. The upper cooking chamber on top of the cooking stone is made up of three stainless steel bowls. A 15" inside, 16" middle and a 22" outside. I did place a heat blanket in between the 15" and 16" bowl. The temp are much better. I reach 550 degrees on the stone very quick. The inside temp at the top of the bowl is with in 100 degrees of the stone.

I also added a small exhaust fan by the stove. I want to keep the room temps as low as I can so I can still cook in the summer. It worked well, the room never got above 75f, outside was around 65f. I will see when it get over 90f in the summer.

BTW the pizza was good.

Thanks

Nick

I was very happy with the way the copper retained the heat. The bell would hit well over 500- 550f near the top before I added the copper. The copper never got above 180.

Yes I also like the look of copper and stainless.
Thanks.
Nick.
