Butterfly brand Oven #2421








The Butterfly brand #2421 Oven allows you to bake bread, casseroles, etc. using any kerosene stove. The oven is approximately a 14" cube. It is very sturdy and does not fold up. Inside dimensions are 10" high, 11" deep and 12" wide. The door opening is smaller, so for pan sizing, the door opening is 11" wide and 9" high. It will accomodate a 10x10 pan, which will allow a little air space around the sides for more even baking.

The oven will work on any kerosene stove, though it does work better on stoves specifically designed to accomodate the oven. The bottom of the oven has a large square opening. Many of the Butterfly brand stoves have a cooking grate that fits inside the oven's bottom and holds it firmly in place. Stoves that do not have this style grate will still work with the oven, but the oven may not be steady. Many people build an oven frame that holds the oven slightly higher than the stove, so the stove is not actually supporting the oven. You can also use large blocks (cinder blocks, for example) to hold the oven.

The Butterfly brand kerosene stoves that work best with the #2421 Oven are: 2413 single burner, 2418 double burner, 2419 double burner with legs, 2415 triple burner, 2417 triple burner with legs, 2648 double-burner 10-wick and 2487 16-wick. The oven works fairly well on the 2698 22-wick stove. While the 2698 does not have the special grate that holds the oven in place, it has a very large cooking surface that makes the oven steady.

Which stove is the best to use with the oven? Probably the #2487 16-wick. It does have the special grate, plus it has a higher heat output than most of the other stoves, which makes it possible to attain higher cooking temperatures in the oven.

  1. Hi, I am considering puchaing one of these to use with the heat of the wood stove. Any suggestions on using it this way such as raising it off the surface, if so what you would you suggest. Thanks!

  2. Valerie, several customers have used the oven on wood stoves. The temperature in the oven may not get as hot as it would on a kerosene stove because the heat of a wood stove is spread out along a much larger area, whereas the flame of a kerosene stove is small, so the heat is more concentrated. It will still work - just allow some extra baking time. I would put the oven directly on the stove - no need to raise it off the surface.

  4. The first time that I Buy Viagra I felt a little uncertain but after use and compare Viagra with Generic Viagra I realized that it's a great product despite the brand or the pharmacy where you can buy the pill. Did you know ? there's a lot of controversy around Viagra, where to find Cheap Viagra . However is the same if you buy Viagra Without Prescription in a physical or Viagra Online Without Prescription via internet

  5. I used a Colman Oven this past weekend. It does a fine job, though it is difficult to control the temperature, and the thermometer on the front was wayyyy off. But we made it work, and enjoyed using it. I got online to see what other people thought of it, and gradually found my way to this oven. Looks nice. I also found my way onto a site warning people about the glass, and it not being tempered glass. I thought your responses on that thread were very professional, and your personal modification to improve an existing product go beyond expectations. I am not in the market for this, since I have the Coleman as well as a good dutch oven, but I will definitely be back to purchase something from StPaulMercantile, as I appreciate the way you stand behind your product.
