Comments: This is a great freestanding wood stove. I hear that Morso is not making this unit anymore, which seems a shame. I guess this unit was designed for the US market (much larger burner) but just couldn\'t get traction. I own number 74 which speaks to how many they sold.
The unit is a convection heater, which means that the outsides don\'t get nearly as hot as with other wood burning stoves. It produces enough heat for the top floor of my house. I get the thermostat on the other side of the floor to 75 degrees even on days were the temps have hit 10 degrees outside. Love this stove.
