Trying to decide on future wood stove for our 3200 square foot new home. Right now we like the Hearthstone Mansfield but we also really like the Lopi Cape Cod (both have big tall glass). The only thing is the dealer said that with the convection design on the Lopi you couldn't cook on the top. Cooking is something we want to do from time to time. But I'm thinking I'd better define what WE mean by cooking. Basically just keeping a supply of hot water for cocoa, etc. Also making soups, chili, etc. by letting it simmer all day. So I'm NOT looking to scramble eggs or something. Do folks here know if the Cape Cod would be ok for this or was the dealer correct when he said no to cooking.
