Absolutely! The Stokem is the only wood burning stove with a glass door in which you can also cook. You have the possibility to prepare a delicious stove in a Dutch Oven which hangs inside the Stokem.
Another option is to use the BBQ grill grate. When the wood has turned into red glowing coles, you can easily prepare sausages or a nice burger.
Finally we have created a beautiful pizza oven, to mount in the Stokem, in which you can bake the best home-made pizzas!

With wood fired stoves there is often coming smoke and sparks from the fire opening. People often do not like this because of the smell that sticks on you for a long time. Stokem has a door with special heat resistant glass which prevents the smoke coming out of the fire opening and directs all smoke to the chimney. The outlet of the chimney is at a height of 235 cm so it never bothers you. But, if you like the open fire when there is a lot of glowing charcoal you can simply open the door en enjoy that direct heat. It is up to you to decide.
The chimney has a height 2,3 meters. A long chimney ensures a vacuum to create a good airflow. Also you have no bother of the smoke coming out of the chimney at that height.
Yes, all parts are made of robust stainless steel. They will last a very long time, even when always standing outside.
But to overcome the cold and wet seasons we have made a robust luxury cover for your Stokem, to offer optimal protection. see the link.
A Stokem has a big ash reservoir. So you do not need to clean it out often. But when you clean it you can use a spade (like in our shop) with which you can easily remove the ashes.
Yes, no maintenance is needed. The window will get some dark smoke residu on it, but that will disappear again when lighting up a good fire. If you want you can clean the Stokem on the outside with water and a ScotchBrite towel.
Stainless steel needs the contact with oxygen to remain rust free. Therefore it is important to keep the stove free of leaves.
That is no problem because there is a small hole in the bottom of your Stokem to let the water out.
Fly-rust (surface rust) consists out of rust particles which come from the environment. It often feels rough and gives a brown surface. This can occur in industrialized areas or near railways.
