For those in the stove industry, the choices must seem plentiful. And maybe this is a regional thing but when I first starting looking into buying a stove, they all looked the same. The first 3 or 4 places I checked, which carried the likes of Regency, Quadra-fire, Pacific, etc, were black, had steel tops rolled down on the forward edge, and came in pedastal form or with Queen Anne legs. All their doors even had the same shape. This was before I found the Aspen which is a better fit for my dinky 320sq ft cabin. The others seemed to be too much stove. I have to wonder if there is a cheap off-shore source of parts like legs and doors, which seem to come in the same types of optional finishes, and is this the reason for the similiarities.
