Man at His Best

Does Your Stove Stack Up?

"The sturdy Danes who build the WITTUS stoves
make seeing the fire key to the design."

"The Wittus stove flourishes today on the
urban as well as western frontier -
in SoHo lofts and Chicago industrial conversions, Fire Island cottages and Aspen condos."

"Kathleen Turner has one. 
If the star of Body Heat doesn't know something about the caloric value of passion, then who does? 
What I wonder is, does she sit, on a fall evening, watching an apple pie brown and bubble in the top compartment of her stove, above the blaze?"
