Money no object, given similar same size fireboxes and specs for a freestanding wood stove, which one is the best? The little bit I've herd is, and may or may not be true is: - Soapstone stays the coolest on outside, and gives off the least heat but looks the nicest - Cast Iron stays hotter longer, but can crack if burned to hot at full blast constantly - Steel gets hottest quickest, but cools quickest, and can be workhorses burned at full blast for longer periods without damage except for doors which can warp which is why many doors on steel units are cast iron. Any of these accurate, wrong? What can you guys add? Is one better than others, or are they each better for certain circumstances? Not including cost!!
