Hello, Wise Ones! We have our first wood stove on order, a Blaze King Princess. The Woodstock Ideal Steel was in close competition for purchase, in large part due to that awesome stove top. The Blaze King won out with us for a couple of reasons, the primary reason being that we don't have a chimney, so we need an extensive install, and our home owner's insurance company is demanding a certificate from a professional installer. Anyway, we will have the Princess. I am interested in doing some basic Dutch oven type cooking on the stove top. I'm thinking stews, roasts, baked chicken and vegetables, cobblers, pineapple upside down cake, that type of stuff. Toward that end I'm thinking of asking for Lodge cast iron cookware for birthday, Christmas, etc. Do you have any recommendations for stove top cooking and the appropriate cookware? Also, what is your favorite hot water/steam vessel for the top of your stove?
