American Sign Language: "stove"

I recommend you just spell out the letters: S-T-O-V-E.

But since sometimes you might see someone doing the actual sign for stove so I'm going to show it here. To express the concept of "stove," sign "cook" then "flat + sides" to show the top and sides of the stove.

STOVE-(descriptive_version) (not recommended)
