I'm new here, and haven't even got s stove, yet. Haven't burned wood for a few decades. I'm pretty set on a Drolet or sister brand stove, but I'm wondering; is there any material or quality differences between the same basic stove, in these brands, or are we just talking frills? Also, if the stainless baffle in the Myriad/Austral is welded in, are these expected to last the life of the stove? Just watched a YT vid of the replacement of a Pacific Energy stainless baffle. It looked like an antitank missile had been mistaken for well seasoned oak. Burned through and warped as all get-out. Thanks, I'm advance, for any help offered. I'm researching while building a decent hearth and getting everything ready. One last thing. Are their certain seasons in which stores have sales on stoves? Menards, Fleet Farm/Farm and Fleet are my three closest.
