Been looking at some Wood Burning Stoves


A little late but the specs I read on that woodstove you are looking at for maximum burn time is 1-2 hours not 12 hours.

It used to read 12 hours!

They must have just changed it because in this review a purchaser even makes claims that it wont burn up to 12 hours (Check the Wistler 110,000 BTU reviews in the link).

It'll put you out the house!!, October 17, 2009
By GJC18KT from Leominster, MA (read all my reviews)



"The longer I waited for this stove the more I began to question the price...The plate steel could be thicker, for sure but my budget was paramount after I had shopped around for most of the summer.

Burning semi cured oak, maple, and ash....Once this stove fires to the point of coals...mainaining the fire is child's play. We have a 2000 sq ft. home, 1/2 of which is the finished basement. Have to open the basement doors and windows to cool us off. Won't burn overnite for 12 hours...possibly 6-8 with it stuffed and the damper closed as far as it will go...Fire box is a bit small for my liking. House is still warm the next morning even if the fire is out.

Nights have been in the mid 30's. The hawk of winter in will be the test...Great item for now. Will repost as it gets colder."

So as you can see, I wasnt mistaken about that little detail. I am glad that I waited because now people are saying the metal on top is too thin and cracks (In two years time).

I dont know. For the money it cant be that bad, then again if it goes bad in two years, maybe its better to go with the Canadian brand.

I have an Osburn wood stove insert and I am well pleased with it, it won't burn 12 hrs either don't think many will, but it will have a good bed of coals that will catch back up in a matter of minutes, I would be leary of a stove that is that cheaply priced, you'll pay for a quality stove but it will last for many years to come.
