I checked out the site. Seems like it would work and it's inexpensive, both
a plus. The problem for me is that I dislike the idea of cooking food inside
I want to avoid--as best I can--turning on my propane oven this fall and
winter making a big exception for holiday meals, cookie baking and the like.
This is an experiment, I desire to find a half-way decent alternative to
using our oven that is more sustainable than propane, and to cook a whole
range of foods in this new way.
I can't afford a cookstove (unless I get a freebie like James did, or a very
cheap one someone is almost giving away), we bought eye exams for four and
glasses for three people with our (first) stimulus check. We were all long
overdue and had prescription changes, so it was necessary.
