I have been looking the past several months for a large stove to repace an old insert, which is vented directly into the chimney. I have been checking craigslist within 8 hours of my house as well as Ebay. I finally found a new, Jotul f600 with brown enamel. The stove has several small knicks on the enamel, but all very small. I saw all of the pics and spoke with the person. I have a return option if I am not satified. I have never bought on ebay so I was a little weary, but I ran it by several ebay regulars I know and they said I was ok with the person. The other problem was getting the wife to agree. We just installed (in November) a Shelburne in an addition room without heat...best move we ever made. My rationale for getting the stove.... 1. We are an all electric house and rates are only going up. Also, effective 2012, we lose out on a substantial discount through PECO. 2. The insert we have is old, unsafe, and very inefficient. 3. We lost electric for 18 hours the other day and the insert didn't cut it, especially without blowers. With an infant, and God willing more someday, I don't want to worry.. 4. Couldn't beat the price, even with shipping. Half of quotes from shops. 5. This stove is awesome! Was I crazy for purchasing this stove?
