The parts of a Pioneer Princess stove include the front ash door, front-loading door, shaker grates, thermostatic control and accessory draft, as well as an optional stainless steel reservoir. This antique stove, which features wooden handles and a porcelain finish, is handmade by the Amish.
The wooden handles of the Pioneer Princess stove remain cooler than metal handles during cooking, while the porcelain finish makes it easy to clean. The thermostatic control allows for even heat distribution and keeps the stove from overheating, and the accessory draft provides the benefit of temporarily directing air underneath the grates so it is easier to start the stove on cold days. Buyers have the option of purchasing the stove with a side reservoir or a rear reservoir. This optional reservoir holds up to 9 gallons.
The Pioneer Princess can serve as a space heater in addition to a stove. When the oven door is left open, the unit can heat about 2,000 square feet of space. The stove also has a shelf and a high back, both of which provide storage space for kitchen supplies. Nearly half of the stove is constructed of stainless steel, making it highly resistant to corrosion and rusting.
