After 6 frustrating years of trying to get my Jotul 3 to burn effectively with little success-even with all kinds of valuable advice from this site, I began to look for another stove. The Englander had caught my eye right away for reasons of look, footprint/clearances, the positive comments on this site about the stove, and the fact that one of its own was involved in its development. Once I got the wife go ahead I made the move. Jotul out-Englander in. In fairness to Jotul and a relief for me we discovered that an improper install of the Jotul might have been the culprit. The installer did not use the included top flue collar adaptor, merely used a crimped end to insert it, never attached it to the stove and it later rode all the way up into the slip connector that had been placed over it. That, however, is water now finally under the bridge and my new Englander is better even than advertised. All the talk about burn cycles, properly seasoned wood, radiant and convection now make sense in a stove that is functioning even beyond expectations---with easily accessible and responsive tech support from Englander as a bonus. I’m burning it in April just because I want to and with each burn I learn more about not only the basics of burning a modern stove but the nuances as well. The efficiency is remarkable and the blower makes this thing a blast furnace. I’m back to enjoying wood burning again. Thanks for all the helpful advice here in helping me get to this point. I’m probably the only guy around who wishes it were November and not April.
