I love this stove and can’t imagine cooking on anything else! I am an Iowa country girl, who cooks everyday for family and friends! My stove cleans up remarkably well! I am impressed with the way the stainless steel cleans up. When I say I use it that is an understatement ! It’s still beautiful. A couple of weeks ago I made about 25lbs of Carnitas. That’s a lot of pork and lard cooking on the stove. I simmered it in a very large stainless bowl for six hours on the simmering burner with no sticking! I can’t tell you how many people I feed off this stove! It’s very used and loved! So.. you can tell this is one very happy LaCanche owner.
