Thanks all for helping out! We like our Jotul, but it requires quite a bit of attention to keep the temp where we want it, doesn't have an ashpan, and is a little underpowered for the room it's in. I bought a Defiant Encore (circa 1988) and could fairly easily switch stoves if I get the 6" collar for it. What are the pros and cons of switching? I really like how the Jotul looks, but the Defiant Encore is a pretty attractive stove too, and I like the idea of the added efficiency. Anyone have experience with a Defiant Encore? Thoughts? Thanks!!
