    I want a Chinook 40 or an Equinox cat with thermostat. I like cast stoves, but I don't think it would look right in my new place.

    The new Lopi hybrid has a 3cu ft fire box according to their Facebook page. Waiting on burn time info. Its a good looking stove IMO.

    Lopi says 12 hour burn time :(

    There is nothing nuts about it. The ability to run an 80+ lb load at 300° is a beautiful thing. So is being able to run at 750° when needed. Two day burns or not, doesn't matter to me, but BK's air control is outstanding. The only negative is that it would be a BIG stove, though clearances are relatively tight on the king. My house is only around 1600 sq ft, but the stove is in a big room, so it works for me.

    Given the price tag of their ugly stove, I'd hate to see what a purty cast one would cost.
