Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Burns shelled corn or wood pellets without any modifications to firepot, etc. Burns corn without forming a clinker. Very little maintenance or cleaning. Easy to install & pellet vent inexpensive. Insurance didn't require "woodburning rider".

Dislikes: Stove unit costs more than wood burning stove. Corn and pellets can draw moisture if not stored properly.

Comments: We still burn a little wood . . . but this corn burning pellet stove is our primary heat.
