Help Identifying an Oven

Can anyone help identify the model of this oven? There are no markings anywhere on it except for "Homestrand Alcohol" that is on the knob. Took a gamble and purchased it for $50, hoping to get it fixed up and working.

That looks like a Kenyon Homestrand Model 500.

Agree. Looks very similar to a 3-burner Kenyon Homestrand I had on our previous boat. Stove worked great for us for years. Hard to get the oven up to high temperature, but burners always worked fine.

Re: Help Identifying an Oven

Although its hard to tell. the link is to the Model 500/505 Manual. The 500 is a 2-burner, the 505 is a 3-burner. I've never used one, however I was thinking along the same lines. I was wondering how hot or consistent an alcohol oven could heat. I've used alcohol stoves for years, but never ovens.

I bet that oven generates a lot of condensation in the winter.

Yeah I have read a lot of mixed experiences with the ovens, but for $50 it will be nice to have it as an option if I ever want/need. I'll let you know how it works once I get it up and running.
