Figured no one wanted to see an ugly install.. But here ya go.
Old one (17 yr old PDV)
New one (10-CPM)
Dinger, almost everybody asks about *that.* I have no idea if *that* is possible- I stick to edibles! Right now what's under the lights: cilantro, Thai basil, Genovese basil, lemon basil that thinks it's a shrub, oregano, thyme and French tarragon. Pardon the ratty appearance; these are annuals and they are over a year old. We started them in the fall of 2011 to overwinter in the house, and they just kept right on going. I clip them down at least every other week. We have dehydrators that we picked up on Craigslist. I've found that the most efficient way of handling it without waste is to trim, dehydrate, then freeze in sandwich Ziplock bags. Yeah, it does look like *that,* but it's not. We picked up the AeroGardens on Craigslist as well. We really do cook with these herbs. Tonight's dinner was Thai sweet and sour pork with onions, tomatoes, red bell peppers, garlic, chili sauce, lemon and lime juice and cilantro over rice with chopped fresh cukes on top.
I hold my breath too every time I have our big canner on the glass top!!
I love my range, I really do... and I used to do most of my pressure canning outside on a propane burner to avoid all risks on the glass cooktop. Eventually convenience and canning inside during the winter won out over caution. The canner is well-sized for the element, and it doesn't appear to be too heavy, even fully loaded. I don't think I'd try this with a larger/heavier canner, though. This works so far, and I'm not going to push my luck! What kind of canner do you have tjnamtiw?
here's my babies:
Sante Fe and Castile
Sopka Royal 720 cookstove burns wood and coal.
Those inserts are gorgeous, tjnamtiw, and I love that cook stove! My mother-in-law's grandmother cooked on a wood fired stove for her entire life. Her kids, when they were grown, bought her an electric range as a gift, so she wouldn't have to tend the wood cook stove anymore. She *hated* it. She made them take it out and bring her wood cook stove back. That is a seriously awesome cookstove!
I"m sure there's some way of changing the orientation, but my patience is all used up tonight.
It's not one of those super heavy duty jobs with all the screw downs around the outside. They are WAY to heavy in weight AND PRICE for me. Mine's a Presto 23 quart, I believe. Pretty big one.
Thanks, becasunshine! My grandparents cooked on a wood/coal one all their lives too. Didn't want anything else. Sopka sells a number of designs (www.sopkainc.com). They are all from Serbia, which is where the owner is from. He goes back occasionally to meet with the various manufacturers. Really quite reasonable and some of his are REALLY pretty. I've cooked a little on it but not as much as I would like. It's down in the small basement 'man cave' to keep the pipes from freezing when it's really cold and the pellets stoves are going upstairs with no central heat circulating air down in that room. Thankfully, in Georgia, that doesn't happen too often! Tonight it will be 30 and tomorrow 24 so it CAN get cold.
mikesj- save the pic to your desktop. open it in ms paint and there should be a 'rotate image" option.
probably in windows picture viewer too.
once you rotate and save it, just host it where ever and it will be in the right orientation.
there may be an even easier way. but that's how i do.
Yea, picture viewer lets you do it, too. You don't have to host anymore. Just upload it right from your computer.
that's very nice to know. i hadn't noticed. thanks.
love seeing everyone's stoves.
I appreciate the tip but I'm on a tablet right now and don't want to fire up the Pc. Maybe I should have said that it was a new, wall mount stove
Replaced an old Reliant Baron FS/I with a brand new Harman P43 on Dec. 29th. First start up. Dirty and simple. on here getting ideas for something better than my patio stone and TSC fire board.
Huh. Our kids went to college with a young man whose family is from Serbia, and they are all still friends. I'll run this stove manufacturer's name by him- I'll bet he knows this stove! Are you in the high country in Georgia? The mountains can surely get cold.
The All American canners are the ones with the big screws. They have a metal on metal seal, no rubber gasket. That's my dream canner although I'm not sure I'd test my glass top range with it- and I do seriously love this range. It would break my heart to crack the top.
The All Americans are seriously cool. My husband (bless him!) has offered to buy one for me but like you, I don't really think I need one right now. I have the Mirro version of your Presto, same size. I learned to can on a Presto, they are awesome as well. I opted for the weighted gauge Mirro because I'm close enough to sea level. I don't have to adjust for altitude, so I don't have to increase the pressure by pound increments. Ten pounds of pressure works for me, and I never have to get the gauge calibrated. I used to take my old Presto gauge in to the extension office faithfully, once a year, and leave it there for days, waiting to get tested. That got old. Now I can when I'm ready to can. If I lived at altitude, though, I'd use a dial gauge as well. There's no need in beating your food up at 15 lbs. pressure if you don't absolutely have to do so.
And yes, it's awesome to see everyone's stoves! You know what we all have in common, besides pellet stoves? Every one of us has an inviting "stove room." It just looks like we could all wander into anyone else's comfortable stove room and sit for a while.
..It wants to be a P68 when it grows up.
Nice stove, but WOW- that is a serious stone hearth!
oh boy. that git fiddle could be getting a bit warm there.
Thank you,.. Im a Mason by trade,.. this hearth once housed a giant Old Mill wood burner,... the lil 25 looks lonely there now... :-(
just the case there now,.. my Fender is comfortably lying on the couch.
