Note: Please note that there are consumer reviews posting about the quality of the baking oven. As of 2015 J.A. Roby redesigned the engineering of the baking oven. Prior to 2015, the baking oven was not convection, thus the heat did not flow around the baking oven. In 2015, J.A. Roby redesigned the Cuisienere Wood Cook Stoves to include a convection baking oven. Thus, the heat flows in the top left side (when facing the stove) and flows downward, up the right side, and accross the top oven the oven and out the flue stack. Since this resdesign, we have had many customers reporting oven temperatures up to 550 degrees!
The Cuisiniere by J.A. Roby has been an exciting wood-fired cookstove since Obadiah's first introduced it to the US market last year. Our hope was to provide a clean-burning wood cookstove for folks who live in areas where particulate is an issue. The original Cuisiniere was unique in that it was utilizing a clean-burning EPA firebox (The Tison) that was modified into a cookstove. Unfortunately, the Tison firebox design did not work well and some customers reported back to us that the oven would not heat effectively and cooking on top of the cooktop was difficult unless you had a raging fire that would cook you out of the kitchen. We pulled back from recommending this cookstove to folks who wanted something more than a great clean-burning heater. For those looking for a wood-burning stove that they could cook and bake in, we steered them to another model that would meet their needs better.
Today, we are pleased to announce that J.A. Roby took our suggestions seriously and made several changes to the design of the Cuisiniere Cookstove and has introduced phase 2 of this model. Looking carefully at the first edition compared to the second edition you can see it has the oven now on the right where the firebox used to be and the firebox is on the left where the oven used to be. Now the smoke travels across the underside of the cook-top and around the rear of the oven so it gets hotter faster and cooks more evenly. These improvements will make a huge difference in how well this Cuisiniere SE performs in our opinion. The first edition has been retired but some folks may still have some inventory around so we wanted to clarify what the differences are so you can make an informed decision if you’re researching the Cuisiniere for your home or retreat.
There is a bit of confusion now between the Cuisiniere and the Cuisiniere SE, which some folks think means "second edition" when in fact means "Special Edition", the Special Edition Cuisiniere is just that, a special edition only available to specialty hearth retailers like Obadiah's Woodstoves. These units are on legs instead of a pedestal and are also available with chrome doors. The firebox door is also square, not curved on top like the standard Cuisiniere Cookstove. Both models are available to Obadiah's so no worries, if you like the old style we can still get it in the new more efficient design that will cook, bake and heat better than the first edition.
The details of this new design are also aesthetically pleasing with a new chrome door option with chrome legs. The Cuisiniere SE looks classy instead of clunky. There are several other upgrades like a porcelain cook-top that can be added that helps keep the cook-top cleaner in case of boil overs or spills typically associated with cooking food on any stove. There is even a smaller version of the Cuisiniere that does not have an oven for those who want a smaller stove. Obadiah's hopes you will be pleased with these new upgrades and we look forward to serving all your wood cookstove needs with the largest inventory of wood cookstoves you will find anywhere. We are proud to partner with J.A. Roby in bringing you this wonderful line of fine stoves.

General Stove Installation Steps
1) Read the entire owner and installation manual before installing and using your stove.
2) Choose a spot where to install your cook stove. Read section about floor protection dimension, localisation of stove over the floor protection plate, and combustible material clearances. Once you have decided where to install the stove, mark the roof at the center of the chimney. To be sure that the vertical center of the chimney is set, then use a plumb line and mark the center on the floor.
3) Check if it possible to pass chimney without damaging the structural integrity of your house and if so, you will need to move the stove to a different location while keeping the minimum clearances in mind. If you can’t move the stove and have to cut through a beam, be sure to keep the structural integrity of your house by following State and National building code.
Note: This appliance has to be connected to 6 inches factory built chimney, HT UL 103 or CAN/ULC S629 compliant, or a 6 inch masonry chimney with a homologated sleeve inside.
4) Install the chimney following the manufacturer's instruction.
5) Put the stove directly on the floor, aligned vertically with the center of the chimney, and trace the side of the stove on the floor and remove it.
6) Trace the protection floor at 8 inches offset clearance from the side and the back of the stove and then trace the front offset clearance at 16 inches in US and 18 inches in Canada, from the front of the door opening.
7) Install the floor protection plate inside the last mark. (It must be non-combustible.)
8) Put the stove on the protection floor plate and respect the offset clearance set at step 6. Be sure to center the chimney with the flue collar. We recommend to attach the stove to the floor with the bolt in the slot made for the legs.
9) If you have an outside air inlet, you must use 4 inches of flexible aluminum pipe. The pipe must be sealed with thermal resistant sealant.
10) Install the chimney connector on the stove collar first and screw it with 3 screws, then continue with the next chimney connector section up to the chimney support collar. Always use 3 screws on each joint section.
· The single wall or double wall chimney connector must be 6 inches diameter and have a minimum thickness of 24 gauge.
· Do not use a galvanised steel chimney connector.
