    I'm thinking of buying a Pleasant Hearth woodstove from Lowes. Can anyone tell me if this brand is reputable? Has a 5 yr warranty, 82% efficent, 12" clearance, and blower included. Heats 1200 sq. ft. and supposedly made in Indianna. USA. I know nothing about these so heres where I come for the smartest guys on the planet about woodstoves. I need one for my cabin which is about 700 sq. ft. Thanks in advance. Bob

    If memory serves me correctly there was a thread about this stove line just a few days ago . . . you might want to try doing a search on Pleasant Hearth.

    Seems like either a chinese made brand or a private label made for Lowes. In any case, it is not a stove with any particular history.....might be fine as a cabin stove, but you are not going to be able to get any real reviews on it yet since it is a new brand.

    those stove are made in Indiana in North manchester Indiana actually they are made with good quality materials and for your 700 sqft cabin the 1,200 would be the best option for you with plenty left over and it does come with 2 extra bricks incase you break one the stoves are put together not just thrown together and shipped to your lowes but any questions feel free to ask

    What's the company that's building them? Do you have one of these stoves? If so, tell us more about it.

    I purchased a 1800 sq ft PleasantHearth from Lowes a couple week ago, so far awesome, middle of October weather here in Northern Mi,isnt a true test but cool 30 degree nights this stove did wonders,at this time of year i use very small pieces of wood and not alot of it, the heat this thing produces is amazing it holds a fire and heat unbelievably long, one of the easiest stoves I have ever operated. As the weather changes Ill leave more updates.

    Well right now its 639$, when I bought it I paid 699$, but I think well worth it. And yes you can go to lowes.com and search PleasantHearth or wood stoves or just google PleasantHearth wood stoves.In the store I was amazed at how small the opening to the firebox looked but it is pleanty big along with the firebox itself, hope this helps. I just your pic, it looks exactly like mine but mine is a hair smaller, the 1800 sq ft model.

    According to the Lowes site, it says EPA certified.

    Doesn't mention a cat, so I'm guessing it's a non-cat stove.
