Installed my Rosa and it is Beautiful! It works as grand as it looks too.
It uses very little wood compared to my 1932 cookstove and the oven really holds the heat steady. The people here were really nice to work with.
Very professional and friendly. They made it easy to order and set up the shipping
Very pleased with the whole experience

I got my cookstove in late February this year. Delivery was on time and Obediahs was very helpful with all of my questions before and after the sale.
I love the way it cooks, and the heat it puts out is enough to warm my 1200 sf house all the way to the back bedrooms. The heat is a soft heat, not like so many wood stoves that blast you out of the room. I have baked breads, cakes, and meals in the oven. So far, everything has come out quite nicely. There is a learning curve, as with anything, but I look at it every day and it gives me that warm fuzzy feeling just knowing I can have heat and cook food any time. BTW, her name is Fiametta...which is Italian for 'Little Flame'. Fia for short.
great experience

Ordered this cookstove. was on backorder, they told me it would be shipped on or about ct. 15th. It was. They gave me explicit instruction on the shipping and receiving. The stove arrived on Oct 19th in great condition. It is a beautiful stove.
Thank you
Beauty and function!

This stove is more beautiful than it looks in pictures, and cooks and bakes like a dream! The true color is more maroon-brown-red, not fire engine red. We use this stove to heat our 1500 sq. ft. house, too. It does hold a fire all night and has coals in the morning. The oven box is on the small side, but it bakes perfectly. I rotate whatever I am cooking once, and it cooks evenly. I highly recommend this stove. It is a terrific value. Everyone that sees it loves it.

This is Gorgeous. After looking at the specs. and details of all cook stoves
for this site, this stove has nearly everything I need. Beautiful color choices
perfect dimensions, nice fire viewing, and price is the best. I do wish this stove had an option to purchase a water reservoir or a water blanket for heating
hot water for household.
