Quadra-Fire 4300 Step Top
I've burned wood for over 6 decades. It is a skill, not a given. You buy the stove, but must develop the skill, it's on you!... These negative reviews, I'm sure they are doing something wrong. Yes, you can overfire a stove in a heartbeat. Burn time depends on wood size, moisture, and quality. My stove never goes out from early winter till late spring. I burn super chunky oak and beech 18 inches long. We have had spells of 20° to 30° BELOW ZERO even this winter. Of course the firebricks burn up! That's why they are there! Lose them and you burn up the stove instead. Cheap and easy to replace. Don't buy the designer set, go to the local ag/feed/hardware store and buy regular firebrick. They fit perfectly, you only need to cut one lengthwise to finish both sides. Use a 4 inch grinder to cut it, or patiently tap it with a brick hammer. Ask a mason to cut it. Don't buy the loud expensive fan that uses a ton of electricity. Buy a cheap 20 inch box fan on sale for less than $20. Stand it up behind the stove. Uses very little electricity, and moves so much air that my water pan on a low rack on top has wind ripples in it. Put a 20x20 furnace filter on the intake side and clean your air of dust. Relatively quiet and very efficient. Best stove I've ever used bar none! Huge heat and easy on the wood for the amount of heat. Little smoke once it's burning.
