Brazilian Stove

I can’t tell what this stove in Brazil was made from. Was it an oven with new clay top? Was it a trash can? Was it an old dishwasher? Something found was modified to serve as a stove feed with litter or scrap. Found on Comingtobrazil.

    I’m guessing the paper and litter inside is burnt to create heat for the pan which would sit on the hole on top.

    I don’t think this is being a stove at all. I think it used to be a stove, and is now being used as something else.

    Note the rails on the sides, which look just right to hold oven racks.

    And if it were being used as a stove, it seems unlikely that there would be paper or plastic containers inside.

    I don’t have much of a clue as to what it is being used for now. I’d love to know what the top is or was.
