    Ok I think our dealer has finally talked us into a qudra fire. Now we have to decide between the cast iron Yosemite or the steel 2100 millenium. Any suggestions, opinions or experience?
    We are heating a 950 sqft home with a small loft. We live in temperate southeast alaska. Probly only keeep a fire going while at home on weekends, evenings, and nites.
    How bout a morso any experience. we really like the model that is a "throw back" to the 2b.

    Thanks for any and all help!

    Typically thest two stoves would not be comparable, A cast stove with a side load would usually be more desierable then a steel front loader. The cast stove is consideraby more money, about 500 dollars to be exact. The exception to this is that some people like the faster warm up (not by much) of steel, and the price is right for the same technology. Some people prefer the look of the steel stoves, and some people dont. The cast stove will retain heat alittle longer and can stand a little overfireing more then steel. Mostly is personal choice and what the other half wants. We all know who realy make the decisions :D
