This was a lilttle more than I wanted to spend. But the fact that it does not have any pilot lights AND does not require an electric hook up made it just about the only option I had for an older home. My tenants love the fact that the top surface is no longer hot and they can put things on it without them burning. Lighting is sometimes a little awkward they say, but the trade off is fine.

Easy to assemble. Battery-Gen spark ignition works well on stove top burners but takes many clicks for oven to ignite.

I really liked the idea of a stove that didn't require a pilot light nor did it require to be plugged in to ignite the burners. This stove fit the bill. The quality of the stove I got was poor. Screws were missing on the broiler door so the metal that covers the door was bent. Hardware was missing to attach the vent to the back of the stove. Unfortunately, the nearest Home Depot was well over 140 miles away. I made due with spare parts I had at the cabin.
The range is really flimsy and poorly put together. The top burners work great. The oven, however, is very difficult to light. I made all the adjustments for the pilot according to the instructions but it still only lights about a tenth of the time. Once the oven lights, it works great. The stove I replaced was made much better than this stove but didn't have the battery ignition I was looking for.
In summary the stove is very cheap in it construction and is poorly made especially for the price of this stove. It does work well with the exception of the oven which takes some time to light using the battery ignition.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobcat75 Just as described
Worked as described. Battery pack could be higher off the floor (only about 1/4 inch clearance). Quality of fit and finish was not the best but works for a rental apartment. Metal on side was crimped but was covered by cabinet. Beeping when controls turned on was a good feature.Overall a good purchase for value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ApothoKeri A perfect range for a small offgrid kitchen!
We are in a fully offgrid cabin with a small kitchen and this is exactly what we needed!
It has 4 good sized burners that are very powerful. The burner grill covers are good quality and feel and look a little old-fashioned. The burners and oven pilot light with ease. The oven door is tight and the top burners all go very precisely from high to low.
You don't even plug it in, it uses 0 watts. It also gives you an audible sound when your batteries are going low...and the batteries are easy to change, just pull out a cartridge at the bottom front of the oven.
It comes set for natural gas with instructions to switch it over to LP. We converted it over ourselves and it took about 2 hours from unpacking to fully installed and lit.
It's basic, not a lot of features (no clock, timer, auto clean, etc) but the features it does have (battery spark ignition, 4 full burners for a small range) are perfect for small kitchens and offgrid and it works well. We have used it daily for over a month now and are very pleased with it.
It can also be easily taken apart on top to clean under and around the burners. While it is very basic, it still has an attractive look too. We would absolutely recommend it to anyone needing a smaller daily use, full range while living offgrid.
