Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: It routinely goes 24 hours on a load of well-seasoned oak firewood, and burns so clean that creosote in the chimney is not a problem.

Dislikes: No ash pan.

Comments: This stove surprises us anew every winter with its ability to heat our large, drafty, uninsulated house. We have replaced the catalytic combuster twice, having purchased the stove used without knowing its history, apart from the fact that it was more stove than the previous owner could handle! We would never own anything but a Blaze King, whatever the price tag!
