    No real experience but like yourself, I looked at them after someone else mentioned it. With the exception of some of the dimensions, it is amazingly simular to the oslo 500. I didn't notice, but being a toploader, I would imagine it doesn't have a baffle and reburning tubes. Not sure. Does anyone know if it redirects the exhaust to destribute the heat around the stove before exhausting to the chimney? Curious.

    The lever on the side of the stove rotates the baffle. You can see it in this video.

    Baffle plate question clarified a bit. According to the schematic, it has a left and right baffle with reburning tube (s). It is interesting enough that I am going to visit my friend's stove shop who seels Jotuls and take a look at it and see if I can get more literature. The specs say it is as efficient as the rest of the line. Still not understanding how it fits with the top loading door. On a mission.

    I was just providing info about the baffle. Instead of a cat, the F 50 uses a baffle and burn tubes to achieve secondary combustion, like ~ 90% of modern stoves use. The only thing different about the F 50 is that the baffle rotates open for top loading. I'm sure more 'real-life' feedback will be forthcoming from some of the F 50 owners.;)

    I watched the video. It was informative and it looks light the baffle is steel from the sound of it when it is moved. If you forget to close it, the baffle goes back to the original position when you put the top door down. The only problem I see with steel baffles vs vermiculite is that overheating can cause them to warp. Since this stove is their newest, I want to see what others have to say about it. The other models already have been proven. I have only used baffle stoves and I have seen but have no experience with cats. My buddy down the street has a woodstock with a cat and it gets supper hot. Anyway, that answers the question about top loading and the baffle plate. I haven't seen the price yet so I am wondering if they are out or they are taking orders.

    The F 50 came out last season. A few members here have one. I think list price ~ $2400.

    I don't think any baffle material lasts forever. As long as it doesn't cost too much to replace, I wouldn't worry too much about whether it's metal or ceramic. Yes, the cat in a Woodstock can see some high temps. . .when there's a vigorous secondary burn in the firebox, the metal baffle/cat shield gets heat from above and below. There were some issues with the cast iron piece sagging; replacement stainless steel part is $45. :)

    My stove uses a vermiculite baffle. Around 50-60 dollars at woodmanspartsplus.com and over 100 at Jotul.
