I've been worried about surviving a wintertime zombie apocalypse. You know, or even just a blizzard. Or an ice storm. I'm not so big on the whole hypothermia thing.
I'd be happy with any of these! [You can get them from Lehman's]
Artisan wood-burning stove.
Price tag: $9000
And how cute is this kitchen!
2. The Sweetheart wood cookstove.
Price tag: $5700
It comes in several colors: White, black, almond, green, blue.
3. The Baker's Oven wood/heat cookstove
Price tag: $2695
Extremely practical and downright thrifty compared to the other two. This is designed for smaller spaces and has a dual function of heat and cooking. It's not nearly as big as the others, but does have both a cooktop and an oven for emergency cooking.
