I've always liked the look of these stoves but how practical/safe were they to use? I mean, if you had a couple of large pots filled with water, wouldn't there be a chance of the stove tipping forward or is the rear fastened to the floor/wall? Also if all 4 burners were in use, what is stopping the unit from collapsing?

Gary, the burner drawer mechanism is very sturdy!  Trust me, I had to figure out how to get mine apart and back together again...  The base cabinet is pretty darn heavy, too.    So far, nearly 3 years into using one as the 'daily driver' at the house in St-Lib and there have been no tip-overs or other disasters when using all 4 burners.  


The issue I immediately spotted, however, is if you have a cabinet above the stove; trying to reach into such a cupboard (if you can even do it, I'm too short...) could result in a nasty spill or burn.
