The Lopi Endeaver is a medium sized stove that unites Lopi's high quality design with solid functionality. The stove's step-top design features a radiant surface cooktop and a convection surface for warming.

The Endeavor offers the closest clearance of any wood stove in the industry, as close as 4 ¼" inches to a rear combustible surface. It also features a taller door opening, allowing you to load bigger pieces of wood and produce longer burn times. In addition, a by-pass damper makes startup easy and prevents smoke-backs during reloading. The Endeavor is approved for hearth stove, alcove and mobile home installations.

I have had this stove for 6 years now and it is a very simple stove to use. It burns very clean and looks great. The problems I have with this stove is that it is too small for my 2000 square foot house. I live in Boulder Montana. That being said I also go through a lot of wood with it. You will not see a 10 hour burn time unless it is smoldering and not putting out much heat even with Fir. ...

This stove came with my house which I bought 13 years ago and I just LOVE it. It has been a terrific stove apart from my personal grudge against the gasket sold with this model which seems way too bulky, IMHO. I keep using their recommended gasket but don't seem to have the knack for getting it installed well. Otherwise it serves as the sole heat source for my rural, 2,200 sq ft NY home which ...

I just wrote a review with overall performance at a 3, Efficiency at a 3, and Ease of Use at a 4. When I hit the submit button and the review came up, everything was at a 5. I will assume the ratings are rigged as they did not show my actual rating on this stove. As I said, I am very disappointed in this stove. They used to be excellent, but certainly not any longer. I am trying the ...

I am disappointed in this stove. We burn seasoned alder, maple, and fir, and it just eats wood. Every 1 to 2 hours, I am feeding it full of wood just to heat my 2000 sq/ft well insulated home to around 70 to 72 degrees. My husband loads it up at night to keep a fire, but usually wakes up around 2 to 3am and chucks it full of wood again. We had the Endeavor installed in Sept 2012, ...

We have owned this stove for 8 years now in our 1700 sq. ft. country house. Except for two door glasses cracked by too hot of a fire during start up in a closed up house, this stove is the best we've owned. You can bank the fire at night and cut the fire air down to a glow and it will keep this house warm all night long and still be 100 degrees at the stove top in the morning at 8:00 am. We've ...

Most of the reviews above are lies by company sponsors. I hate this stove! It does not heat my house. It uses too much wood. The door always falls off causing safety hazard. The company does not warranty or repair correctly. Look elsewhere for a wood burning stove. You will thank me for telling you the truth.

I've had this stove for, about, 7 years now and I live in Maine. The stove burns 24/7 from Fall until Spring. My house is, about, 2000 square feet with cathedral ceilings in the living room. As long as the temps stay above 20 degrees the stove does pretty well but the burn time is much, much less than the ads that I have read. Keep in mind, I live in a state that is nearly 75% wooded so we know ...

We bought this stove a year ago and have absolutely no regrets. We have a 2600 sq ft home with electric heat which is extremely expensive. We use this stove exclusively for heating now and just love it. Best investment ever and with reduced electric bills, it will pay for itself half way through our 2nd winter. I recommend also purchasing the fan to further improve heating efficiency.

I don't see how the reviews can say this will heat a home? I bought this model and am very disappointed as it does not even heat the livingroom. My home is 2100sq ft and the livingroom is 15 x 30 with a two story ceiling with a ceiling fan. The stove has a blower and it will keep coals all night but it does not throw out any heat. Even with the blower I can sit three feet away and don't feel ...

Live up in NW MT. Just bought this stove to replace our old & inefficient wood stove. So far, it has met all of my expectations. The quality of the construction is outstanding. The bypass damper works great for preventing smoke spillage and strong draft for starting/rekindling fires. I am getting 9 hours out of 3 17" long quartered pieces of a 16" diameter larch. The fire is beautiful, glass ...

I have had the stove for one year. Burning good hard wood I always have a good bed of coals in the morning or after work for getting the stove going again. It is does a good job heating my 2,200 sqft house located 1 hour south of Montreal. I don't particularly like the lower damper, it has a loud grinding/scraping sound when operated. It seem quite a few people are have combustion issues. I'm ...

Great stove. I use it as my main source of heat for my home during the winter months in New York. It has great efficiency and keeps my house 74 degrees even when the temps fall below zero, easy to start and maintain. I'm very happy with this stove.
