The Kitchen Queen wood cook stove has a 24 gallon water reservoir system, that heats water via a water siphon system. Cold water enters the firebox through a heat exchanger (water coil) and converts it to hot water, with no moving parts or electricity. The heat exchanger can be connected to a large hot water tank for whole house use.

Kitchen Queen has Natural Heat Convection

Of course every stove works with heat convection, which is to say that heat naturally rises. But the Kitchen Queen takes a better advantage of this principle. Look at grandma's old stove in Figure 1. See how the heat circulates over the top, down the far side next to the water reservoir, under the bottom and then out the flue. Now compare Figure 2 to see how heat circulates in the Kitchen Queen. notice that the flow is first directed under the oven, up the right side, over the top, and then out the flue. The flow of heat and smoke is not directed at any point to take an unnatural downward turn. This is why we say the Kitchen Queen works with natural heat convection. This is truly a remarkable innovation in the design and function of a wood cook stove and, to our knowledge, is the only stove currently being manufactured that routes the smoke this way.

What are the Kitchen Queen advantages? It simply works better. The smoke and heat travel in a natural direction. But, most importantly, the smoke is not routed past any cooling surface, and therefore, is not cooled below 250 degrees F, the point at which liquid creosote is deposited on the cooling surface. This means less work for you.

The Kitchen Queen Firebox

A big advantage that Kitchen Queen has over most other wood cookstoves is the size of the firebox. Old models in particular tended to have very small fireboxes and, as mentioned before, were so poorly located that natural heat convection was hindered rather than helped. The Model 480 Kitchen Queen comes equipped with grates and a large ash pan for easy, clean ash removal. The ashes do not have to be shaken down to allow draft to get to the fire.

Air is directed in through the door through a baffle that causes the air to be preheated before it enters the firebox making for a more efficient and hotter fire.

The Kitchen Queen wood cook stove Big Difference

The big difference between the Kitchen Queen wood cook stove and all other cookstoves that we know of is the route the heat and flue gases take around the oven.

All other stoves run the heat over the top of the oven and down the far side, often past a cooling surface such as a reservoir. Then it goes under the oven, where most of the time the flue gases have dropped below 250 degrees. Then these gases will condense or liquefy into liquid creosote leaving a sticky mess, not to say anything of rotting out the stove. In this method all your heat must be radiated down into the oven. And heat does not readily travel down, therefore most of your heat will be in the top of the oven, resulting in bread being burned on top and under baked on the bottom.

The heat and flue gases on the Kitchen Queen are directed under the oven first. And that is where you want the most heat b2caLL~ heat naturally travels up. It will actually flow up through the oven resulting in an evenly heated oven.

N ext, the heat travels up the far side, with never a cooling surface to cool down the gases. Then over the top where there is still plenty of heat left to radiate down into the oven to nicely brown your bread or whatever. Your bread will never come out under baked on the bottom and over baked on the top.

Another big Kitchen Queen difference is the reservoir. It is located on the back behind the top shelf where it will not take up any extra floor space. The water is not just heated by heat radiating from the stove. It has a stainless steel coil right in the firebox that will naturally circulate the water through the firebox and back into the reservoir. In other words, you have plenty of hot water all the time with our large 24 gallon capacity reservoir and handy tap within easy reach. No more dipping water out of a small hole. Fill your tea kettle or pan with hot water right out of a faucet, like you would in the sink.

Last, but not least, is the fire door. The model 480 Kitchen Queen has a large 14x16 inch opening and will take logs up to 20 inches long. The 380 Kitchen Queen door is 14x12 inches and will take logs up to 18 inches long. No more splitting wood down to fine kindling all the time.

No More Hot Water Bills

 

Enjoying the luxury of hot water can cost a family as much as $500 a year. Not so if you own a Kitchen Queen. This stove completely eliminates the need to run a conventional hot water heater, And the real beauty is your water is heated with energy that would otherwise be lost to the environment. You actually get free hot water while your food is being cooked and your house is being warmed.

At your option, your stove can be fitted with a stainless steel coil inside the firebox. This coil can either connect to a 25 gallon reservoir that fits neatly onto the back of the stove, or it can connect to a remote tank. In either case, water circulates through the system using the thermosyphon principle. This simply means that heated water rises and colder water falls. No pumps or pressure tanks are needed. Hot water is drawn from the system at a faucet conveniently located on the right side of the stove. Again, we have taken efficiency into consideration and placed these coils on a part of the firebox that does not come in contact with the hot gases that circulate around the oven.

 

Your situation might suggest connecting your Kitchen Queen to a remote tank. This tank might even be located upstairs, but unless you have a pressure tank of a water source that is higher than the house, your will have to carry water upstairs to fill the tank. Regardless of where the tank is located, the thermosyphon principle adequately circulates water through the system. How much hot water can the Kitchen Queen produce?
It can easily heat 40 gallons per hour, which is an adequate amount to take care of a large family's needs. And if you are concerned that hot water in summer will be a problem, consider the ease of connecting a solar heater to the system

The Kitchen Queen's Even ... Heating Oven

One of the more common complaints that cooks have with wood ranges is difficulty in keeping the oven evenly heated. We are pleased to announce that with the Kitchen Queen, such a problem has been eliminated. Again, it has to do with the fact that we routed the heat underneath the oven first. Look back to Figure 1 and grandma's cookstove. The top on the oven is heated first. Will the heat fall to the bottom of the oven? Never! Heat rises.

Now compare the Kitchen Queen in Figure 2. With the fire directed under the oven first, the bottom of the oven will heat first. The heat will then move upward naturally. Remember, the Kitchen Queen works with natural heat convection, not against it.

The Model 480 Kitchen Queen has a large eight .. loaf oven. The Model 380 Kitchen Queen will bake six loaves at once. Both have three shelves. The bottom shelf is heavy .. duty so it can be pulled out and used as a testing shelf. Built .. in thermometers are standard.

The Kitchen Queen Is Supercharged

 

It sounds like something that belongs in a racing car, but in reality the supercharger in a Kitchen Queen is an innovation that enhances the circulation of smoke and heat and reduces the tendency toward creosote buildup

even more. Notice the small handle that is located at the bottom front center position in Figure 2. When moved in or out, this control opens and closes a small hole with access into the firebox at a point where the heat begins to circulate beneath the oven. By opening this small hole, the fire becomes hotter and therefore bums cleaner. This, too, serves to limit the deposit of creosote and is one more reason why the Kitchen Queen saves you time and money.

The Kitchen Queen supercharger also serves another purpose. It ensures a more rapidly heated and hotter oven. Our findings show that with the oven at 3 50° ~400° F the temperature will soar to 600° F within minutes of opening the supercharger.

Kitchen Queen

Just this spring I decided to purchase my Kitchen Queen and had it installed in July. It just started to get chilly at night a few days ago so I decided to stoke it up and see what it could do. I am in love with the heat it produces! It thoroughly heat my home and I did not have to get up in the middle of the night to add wood. I am so glad that I decided to go with this stove. Thanks again antiquestoves.us!

        Thankful for the Kitchen Queen!

        With the weather we have had the last few winters and I am so glad that I decided to take the leap and buy the Kitchen Queen! Last winter using fuel oil solely as a back up we only had to fill the tank one time throughout the entire winter. With the rising cost of fuel oil we were grateful for that. We had no power for 3 days after the last big storm and the Kitchen Queen was able to keep out 2,400 square foot home warm.

          The KQ is the total package!

          I purchased the Kitchen Queen from antiquestoves.us last May and had it installed in August. I could not be happier! The size of the logs I am able to use as well as the amount of time it holds a fire are remarkable! It is easy to cook on and the food actually turns out better than on a regular stove in my opinion! The service I received from antiquestoves.us was great and they were quick to respond to my email. Not only did they help me to find the perfect stove but also they were very kind. It is not often that you find great products and great customer services in the same place. The Kitchen Queen is the best stove on the market!

            Great Stove

            We live in an old farmhouse, which as you can imagine is very hard to heat. There are 8 bedrooms between the two floors with a total of 4200 square feet. We had an older wood stove but it was just not working like it used to so we decided to look for a new one. After searching various sites we came across antiquestoves.us. My wife loved the look of the Kitchen Queen so I gave in and purchased one. Not only does it heat our entire home but also I have never seen my wife happier than when she is cooking on her new stove. With the ever-rising costs of living we have always tried to stick to the most energy efficient products and the Kitchen Queen is definitely one of them. I am so glad that we decided to purchase the Kitchen Queen and I will be recommending it to everyone.

              Best Decision

              One of the best investments I have ever made was the Kitchen Queen Wood Cook Stove. Winters were always hard on us especially having to purchase fuel oil. Every month we were paying over $600 just to heat our home. Two years ago I finally listened to my dad and decided to switch over to wood heat. Not only have I noticed a complete difference in the feel of the heat but in my wallet too. Between my folks and I we own over 1,000 acres and 95% of it is woods. We are able to heat both of homes all winter and the cost is nothing compared to what it once was. I am so glad that I took the step to wood heat and even happier that I chose the Kitchen Queen Wood Cook Stove. My wife loves cooking on it and she is teaching our oldest daughter how to cook on it as well. My son and his wife are buying there first home and they have decided to purchase a Kitchen Queen too! From this point on we will always be a wood burning and cooking family!

                Satisfied Customer

                The Kitchen Queen is the best stove on the market. We have had one for the last ten years and could not be more satisfied. We have taken it with us when we moved and will never go without one! Our home is 2300 square feet and it heats every inch of it. Living in Michigan you never know what the weather will be like from day to day making it even more important to have a good heat source. Last winter when it got down to below freezing temperatures we had no problem keeping our home warm. When a part broke on it recently we contacted antiquestoves.us and we were very satisfied with customer service. We were not entirely sure which part was correct so we emailed customer service with our stoves information and a picture and were contacted the very next day. We were able to purchase the part and get back to using are stove in no time. I could not be happier with customer service or my stove. Thanks again antiquestoves.us.

                  Amazing Cook Stove!

                  Last year was one of the worst winter's we have had in a long time. Luckily we decided to purchase the Kitchen Queen during the spring and install it in the summer. The weather was frigid and the storms that hit were horrible. Thousands were without power as well as us. While we did not have power for days we were still able to heat our home and cook. This made being without power much more bearable. We were able to take in our family and keep them warm and fed as well. I do not know why we ever used a regular stove or regular heat before. I am in love with the Kitchen Queen and I will never go back to a regular stove or gas heat!
