I have noticed that alot of fellow wood burners show off pics of their thermostst needles pointing to 600 to 800 degrees and above on their stove tops (freestanding and inserts). The magnet clearly states this is "Too Hot". Could some of you explain this? Are you not worried about setting your house on fire? When I have my small insert cranking the stove top gets to 300 at the highest and its obvioulsy not that hot, the fire inside the fire box is about 700 degrees. Thanks for any input and be safe!
