Review: Sedore Model 3000
Sedore Model 3000
We just completed our third season with "Old Toasty", yes we named the stove and actually refer to him as a family member! We love this stove more and more every year which make it hard to let hits fire go out when the weather warms up. The Sedore has a learning curve, like any stove out there, but once you get in synch with its inputs(fuel) and its outputs (heat) you become intertwined in a symbiotic and rewarding relationship. The stove burns just about anything which is nice for people like me who cut there own wood. Since the stove is a downdraft design, only the wood at the bottom burns allowing you to put the fresher(wetter) wood on top of the stack where it will dry out before igniting on the coals. The stove allows for easy ash removal and interior access to the stove pipe where you can easily run a brush and sweep your own pipes with minimal mess and no climbing up on the roof.
