Jacuzzi did make stoves for awhile.......they had a oval door - but I do think VC makes a line for discount stores (home centers) with the same name (Century)... As Elk admits, the price at a stove dealer for the replacement Encore cat and some ceramics can run up to $500 PLUS installation and perhaps other parts. Maybe he knows where to get them cheap, but 95% of current owners do not. Hence, if someone purchased a used Encore for 900 or so, and it needed a cat....well, you can add for yourself..... As far as the proverbial Desert Island, I've been using that to help my customers for decades. Since one stove is often not "better" than another, it helps to point out the differences......such as stove #1 might need standard firebrick, while #2 may use cast iron liners..... Still another point which we have heard a lot - is that some manufacturers are only stocking parts for 10 years after a stove model stops being sold. So whichever stove a person decides on (especially Pellet Stoves and Cast Iron stoves), they should make certain of the future parts situation. I have folks emailing me almost every day for Upland owners manuals - the last Upland stove we made was about 20 years ago......there is almost no such thing as a "rebuild" or "refurb" with these simple stove - maybe a latch replacement and gasket. The point is that a Mercedes (VC) will be in the shop and will cost more over the decades than a Ford with roll-up windows. (I have had both)..... On a similar topic, I usually caution against folks buying used pellet stoves......for many of the same reasons. Unless it is a relatively lightly used current model, it can be a parts and "refurb" nightmare.
