    I was getting some gaskets at the local stove shop who carries Hearthstone and asked if they were getting any of the new stoves like the Equinox or Bari since I wanted to see one up close. The woman I spoke with said no but they might be getting a Deva. They didn't have much information on it. I didn't find anything on Hearthstone's website.

    Once again, Tom Oyen to the rescue.

    Does this have a secondary burn system??? or because it is a "cooking" stove do the get around the emissions regs?

    Hey Burn-1, thanks for the plug! I actually got an E-mail from Hearthstone's President/CEO, congratulating me for beating their website team to the punch again (nailed 'em with the Equinox by a couple days too). As I explained to him, it all has to do with good communication between the artwork team, page layout staff and html writers, all of whom happen to be me.

    By the way, this is a waycool stove: ceramic glass cooktop, viewing windows in the firebox and oven doors, and beautiful finish work: I've never seen anything quite like it. Decent price, too, considering the competition.

    Vintage, the Deva 100 is exempt from EPA regulations because it is a cookstove. Given the design requirements for wood cookstoves (the way the oven heats, for example), I don't know if we'll ever see an EPA approved cookstove.

    I love the look of the stove, makes me want to build a spot for it. But the ceramic glass cooktop is a turn off. The last thing I'd want is a fussy stove top. I would much prefer cast iron or even a soapstone top.

    Thanks Tom!

    A couple months, maybe a year or more...someone had a posting up on the esse?? (sp) cookstove and i think it had a secondary system. What is your take and do you have any info on pricing/performance/history...Is the deva something that came from hearthstones Spanish parent company?

    Thanks for your time and experience.

    The Deva 100 is from Hearthstone's parent company in Spain. The Esse comes from England. Both companies have been around for decades, and have excellent reputations, particularly in Europe where they're better known.

    The Esse Wood Cooker is a beauty for sure. A little narrower than the Deva 100, the Esse features Esse's own patented Afterburn2 secondary burn system. This system is designed to work very like the non-catalytic secondary systems in today's heating stoves to clean up the exhaust emissions, but doesn't burn clean enough, I'm told, to meet EPA standards. Suggested retail is about $4,600.00, but if you shop a bit, you can find it for about the same price as the Deva 100.

    I don't have any personal experience with the Esse and how it holds up, and the Deva 100 is new to me too.

    For my money, the Deva's advantages are the oven window (the Esse has a solid door) and much higher maximum heat output (46,000 btu/hr compared to 20,000 btu/hr).

    TOM,

    THANK YOU.

    Also noticed you have quite a few models of cookstoves. Is this a growing segment of the market?

    Oh, yes. Woodstoves of all kinds are selling in record numbers. Cookstoves are a relatively small segement of the wood-burning marketplace, but their sales are growing proportionately.

    What are the install clearances to non combustible surfaces ? Those sure aren't 14" clearances on those pictures. Is there a choice of color ? I would like one of those for my solar home in the planning too....

    Hey Keith,

    There are no clearance requirements to non-combustible walls. The Esse requires 8" clearance to a combustible sidewall and 16" to a combustible rear wall. The Deva 100 has a close clearance listing if you vertical vent using double-wall connector pipe: 4" to a combustible sidewall and 14" to combustible rear wall.

    Although the Esse requires more sidewall clearance, it is a little narrower than the Deva, so they both would take up about the same space.
