I LOVE these stoves! I had an old farmhouse with two stove chimneys and a fireplace. The small stove in the 10x20 foot kitchen could raise the room temp from 50F to 80F in two hours. We modified the living room fireplace to take another small stove That room was 16x36 and the stove kept my parrots toasty for 17 winters. After Hurricane Katrina, I could no longer afford oil, so I ditched the ...

Good stove for the money. Don't heat your house with it unless you are an experienced fire bender. Awesome for garage/shop.

Stumbled across this site this morning. I read a review about half way down that sounded exactly like what I'd have to say about it. Sure enough turned out I wrote it a few years back. Well, been heating with this stove for eleven years now. It is our primary heat source. Electric is our only other heat option and is very seldom used. No problems with the stove. The joints need to be resealed ...

For the cost involved & compared to a high price steel stove I think this stove is well worth the money. Mine was shipped mostly complete with the box completely gasketed & it only took about an hour to finish installing the remaining hardware with no missing parts. The cost for triple wall chimney pipe exceeds the cost of the stove. It heats my smaller ranch style home well & has a nice ...

A great value if you're handy and willing to improve the seals in a couple of places. I used furnace cement on the top of the sliding piece below the door and under that sliding piece at the very front, high-temperature silicone in a couple of spots around the burners, and to attach a thicker fiberglass door-seal rope. Maybe a $35 investment and 2 hours of work, and it seals pretty well to damp ...

This is the best stove for the money IF you know how to use it. Don't overload it because it is not airtight and you will overfire it. If it does overfire don't worry, just keep your eye on it until the stove thermometer starts going back down. (you MUST get a stove thermometer for this stove). Puts out a lot of heat but also wastes a lot of wood because of the unavoidable drafts. Again, FOR ...

I've used one to heat my home for the last 6 winters. The only problem I've ever had with it was the first time we fired it. The literature said there might be a "slight off-gassing". The smoke from the oil burning off ran us out of the house the first time we fired it. If I were installing a new one I'd fire it outside the first time.

I've had this stove for about two weeks. It is not even close to air tight, and as such needs to be used with caution, and under supervision. I certainly would not put this stove (at least as is out of the box) inside your home. I've had a couple of runaway fires so far (with just a couple of pieces of dry wood) that created flue exit temperatures of 900+ degs F (my thermometer was pegged). ...

I have had my stove for two years to heat a cabin as the primary heat source. Coupled with the optional heat reclaimer it does a decent job. However there are a few issues. The door is only gasketed on three sides, not the bottom, this leaves a gap that makes it impossible to cut the draft off causing easy runnaway of fires. The cast pieces do not fit closely allowing the above issue. I ...

This stove is a perfect example of you get what you pay for. It goes through wood fast and constantly smella like because the junk sealer used on the joints burns off. However, it does put out some good heat and works very well for my garage/shop.

Great stove for the money. If you have had $1500 dollar stoves in the past then you won't like this one. However it heats up my 1200 sq ft upstairs without blinking an eye here in south, MO. I would recommend that you vent straight up through the roof and not through the wall. it makes all the difference in the world with this little guy not to have any bends in the pipe.

I recently purchased the Vogelzaang model bx26e. I have to comment that having only used this stove twice I can safely safe this is the biggest piece of junk I have ever purchased. The engineer must have been thinking this was for display only and not for burning anything. Some of the upper seams leak smoke. The fire door does not sit tightly against the frame and you can see flame on the ...

Outstanding stove for the price. But I'd only use for a garage. Its NOT even close to air tight. If you load it with a lot of smaller wood, you can't shut enough air off to cool it down. As long as you know that and don't overload it, its a great stove for a workspace. I wouldn't use it in my living room.
