This is George; our DeVille wood-fired cooker. He may not be an Aga, but for France he's the next best thing.
He's only used in the winter months when he cooks roasts, stews, and, if Cro is feeling creative; bread.
Unfortunately the thermostat is 'estimative', the temperature control system almost non-existant, and the capacity for burning; excellent.
Anyway, he heats the kitchen and our bedroom above wonderfully. I don't expect we'll be lighting-up much more now. Spring seems to be on the way, and George can easily overheat the house.
Just for information; our sitting room Godin stove is called Gilbert.
