This stove is not mobile home approved nor EPA approved. Cookstoves are nationally exempt from EPA regulations. Learn more about EPA exemptions here.

Detailed Dimensions are as follows:

28" deep + 2.5" for handles = 30.5" overall deep

32" wide cooktop + 4" for handles = overall width of 36"   

32" height for the cooktop

33.25" height to the flue collar

Depth of stove with rear reservoir   = 28"

Width of stove with side reservoir  43" wide


An oval to round adapter comes with the stove.  This creates an offset and the adapter protrudes out 5.5" off the back of the flue collar.  This 5.5" must be added to the stove depth of 28" (28" + 5.5" = 33" total stove depth) for clearance purposes.

When facing the front of the stove, the flue collar on the stove is positioned 12" from the right side to the center of the hole.  The flue collar is 33.25" high from the floor.  The flue collar protrudes out 4" from the back edge of the stove.

The rear water reservoir sits 4" on the back of the stove and 4" on the flue collar and does not overhang the flue collar.  Adding the rear water reservoir does not change stove clearances.

Obadiah's GREAT & Love the cookstove!
September 5, 2013
Reviewer: Karl Geary - NY State
Let me start with the company I bought my cookstove from, "Obadiah." From what I can tell, It's a smaller mom and pop operation. From the purchase to install, these guys were just great. I was installing the stove myself and Woody, himself a fireman, sized and recommended the best route the pipe should take, etc. Even when I had to call a few times with banal questions, they were patient to the last. Now the stove is in and I am very very grateful to them for their help and support. The stove itself: It's simple, functional and very effective. I use it to heat an area about 1450 sf, this it does with ease. The space is pretty well insulated, but still an old house and there are air leaks. The oven is great, bit of a learning curve there. But I think that says more about me than the stove. Otherwise, I gotta say, I love this stove.
