Grew up with a doric cooker on a farmstead in rural Ireland, absolutely fabulous warmth on a cold wet December night. All meals, homemade bread, scones, jam etc made on this wonderful cooker.

Aren't these brilliant wee cookers.! Basic but they work just fine if the flue is the correct size.
We are able to supply many parts for the early Doric's. The best supply is for RH oven cookers. We have a Early LH model turning up here Apr 14. Its the second model with casting # 1/1 cast into the bottom base of the cooker. (seen from the floor side of the panel) Its LH oven.

Hi - I've recently moved into a new house with the original Doric stove which I love. If anyone has any tips on cooking/using it I would love to hear them! Thanks

I have one of these in my kitchen. It was converted to burn oil many years ago and to this day has never given any trouble.

With the price of oil beyond all reason I would very much like to reverse the conversion, but the parts removed have long since been lost. So, if anyone has any ideas where I could obtain spares for this "wonderful little cooker", do please let me know!

Thanks in advance.
