I moved my old stove (old Sierra 'smoke dragon') out of the way to get my floors redone. This would certainly be as good a time as any to replace the old one with something modern. Given my extensive research last year, and given my flue situation ( I need a rear vent stove), I'm looking at either the Isle Royale or the F 500 or F600 Jotul. We heat the whole house with the old Sierra, sometimes too hot. I think either the Jotul or Quad will do the job, but I am concerned about my wife learning to operate the new stove. I must admit I like the side loading door on the Jotul, but seem very drawn to the Quad.
