Yes. Continue reading if your have time on your hands.

Regardless of the method of oxygen delivery, there will not be a significant increase in the fractional concentration of oxygen in the room. (The normal oxygen concentration in the air is about 21%.) This means that it is safe to use the stove and your oxygen.
