Those tea-cups will never be done, no matter how long you cook them.  Was that what you were testing?  eek

  awesome stuff, fluffy - that will be quite valuable too 

first you get some coal and some wood and some firelighters 
the coal will keep it stoked, like simmering (especially handy so you don't have to relight the thing every day)
the wood will make it zing, like boiling

with practice you should be able to make excellent sponge cakes and scones, as well as having a stew simmering on the back burner ready for dinner or a late snack, AND get a kettle to have constant hot water for a cuppa 

when was the last time it was used? should get a chimney sweep out to make sure its all okay.
and do you have the pokers and things for opening doors, flues, and stirring stuff in the fire? oh, and an ash-pan for catching ashes?

Thanks WR

My great Aunt was over earlier, and she learnt to cook on one..so gave me a wee run through.

It was put in by the super fussy previous owner, not long before they sold and is all immaculate (been used "14 times")

I have to have the main fireplace swept for insurance, so will do the coal range at the same time.

Not sure about the bits and bobs..it has lots of levers and things and trays in the main part.

I guess I will just have to fire her up and do a bit of trial and error with the scones etc
