Jotel woodstove and cooking

pamilyn's picture

Does anyone know anything about these stoves. Can someone who is search savvy find me a website? I could only find one and it was in the northwest. I think you can cook on top of them. They had one with a cookplate on top. Can't you cook on any woodstove?


Any nformation would be helpful. TIA. I hope I put this is the right folder. Maybe equipment would have been more appropriate. Pamilyn

Try putting in Jotul with a 'u' + wood.  Lots showed up.

But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!

Ahha. I must have had the spelling wrong. Thanks Adele. Pamilyn

We had one years ago. It was very tall and the kettle would boil after a long time on a very hot fire. I could probably do it in an emergency, but wouldn't otherwise. My current policy is no woodstoves. They are sooo dirty. Not to mention the work.

When I was a kid, we had a Jotul woodstove at home, and it did have a cookplate on top. I think I remember putting a kettle on it and it took a very long time to boil. The stove got hot enough to make the room comfortable, but nowhere near hot enough for serious cooking.


I suspect you might be able to do a slow braise on it, or make stock, or some such. But I wouldn't try to sear. :-)
