For those that heat with wood; having the ability to use the heat lost in the chimney flue to cook with would be an ideal situation. The Bakers Salute Oven gives you the ability to do just that. I have had my eye on a Bakers Salute Oven for the last couple years, but every time I looked on line at Lehman’s they were back-ordered. Well one day they finally showed as being in stock so I ordered one, and of course it was immediately put on back-order.
So after waiting patiently for several weeks, I finally received a shipping confirmation, and three days later it arrived. It was much bigger and heavier than I expected, now we just had to install it.
Check for damages first
Remove existing pipe
Measure clearance and test fit new stove-pipe
Dry fit pipe into bottom of oven
This would be a good time to clean your chimney
Set oven on wood-stove and slide down top pipe
Screw through bottom flange into pipe
Screw top pipes together
Snap rings hold it in place
There are a lot of questions about these ovens and probably the biggest two are:
- Does the food taste smokey? No smoke enters the oven chamber; it goes up through the bottom and runs up baffles that are built into the walls of the oven.
- What about creosote? We have not noticed any significant creosote build up since using the oven, but we have an Earth Sheltered Home that uses about a cord of wood a year. Those that burn more wood; I would check it frequently. There are access ports on the sides and the back for cleaning the oven.
You can buy them from Lehman’s at the link below.
