Jotul F 3 CB
Have owned this stove for four years. Will run to top of safe heat range easily when cold out,Mn., so installed stove pipe damper. Wow, whole different behavior. Of course, this years winter is warm, so stove stays on low end of safe range with much more ash generated. Stove not so efficient now with damper and warmer winter! Last year I could put wood in every two hours. My fault as stove is too small for 3 br rambler. Mind you, before damper install stove never overfired. Hot but not dangerous.

I just posted a review of the Jotul F3 CB, where I gave it a 3, 3, 2 rating. When the review posted it showed 5 stars for all categories. Trying again here to set the record straight.

Jotul F 3 CB not worth the money
Reviewed and rated by MuskieC on January 04, 2014

We downsized from an older and larger stove, so we knew there would be an adjustment to the small size. The stove is rated for 1300 sf and we are heating less than that in a 20 year old house...

The site reset when I went to submit my review and the ratings all went back to 5’s. As you can tell from my dealings with the stove I rate it lower.
