I have used all kinds of cooking stoves. Everything from folding ovens on one burner stove. This past Thanksgiving holiday at the house I brought it out to help cook dinner. The 20lb. turkey was in the house oven, and there was no room for anything else. While it was cooking I cooked 2 pies 2 casseroles and mashed potatoes, and everything comes out at the same time. A great oven that you can use any ware outside.
