Ahhh yes... the fine lil french woman "wewee misure".
I'm Calling You Out on that one.
You didn't really say anything at all. Especially compared to your opinions on the other stoves mentioned. Maybe you just think my stove is ugly. Or maybe you don't. You Tell Me I can take it LOL
I thought it might be an option for DD. A lot of features he desires.
Deep Oval Pot, Brick lined
Easily burns 15 hours without a tending.
Has a Window.
Uses 25-40 lbs of coal per day at mid burn.
Only moving parts are one draft knob and a simple shaker.
Will heat 1000 square ft easily.
Burns from 450-750 degrees, I have no problem keeping my stove stable with a baro damper. Heats my 1000 sq ft basement medium insulation.
Burns Coal, Burns wood.
Several people on this forum own and love them (I had many GOOD folks here to help me along since I had ZERO experience with with any solid fuel stove, easy to learn)
All Parts available although they go years needing nothing.
Stove is still manufactured with little change to the original design.
I've run this for 2 seasons and have no intentions of replacing it. No Complaints.
I bought this w/ no help, just found it on Craigslist, did a little research, bought it and never looked back. Later that year a buddy turned me on to this forum and I got the help I needed.
