Jotul F 602 CB
I purchased a CB stove in 1976 for our den. This is without a doubt the best looking wood burning stove I have seen. We also cut and split our own wood so we can cut it to any width we want. Ideally the split log should be around 14inches with a small diameter also the ash tray, an accessory is highly recommended, the Norwegians built a good one.

The old 602s that I have go twelve hours. How is this an upgrade if it only goes three hours?

The best wood stove I’ve ever owned. (had 2 other brands) Very efficient. the only drawback I can think of is that the wood box is a bit short.

I installed one in my small log cabin in MT. Very easy to start and keep a fire going. Will keep a fire burning for about 3 hours, but coals glowing for up to 5 hrs. Best if you keep your logs...

Jotul F 602 CB - not worth it

I have owned two of these and made the mistake of buying one for a client. Because it’s about the smallest nice looking stove you can easily find I got them. Big mistake.
