What Are The Best Recommendations For Wood Burners and Stoves?

Updated on June 9, 2013

With the rising cost of gas and electricity, I decided to research wood burner stoves as these are efficient, cost effective and don't have too much impact on the environment compared to most fossil fuels. The question for me was what are the best recommendations for wood burners?

What I wanted from a wood burner was something that would throw out around 5kw of heat (enough to heat up a good sized room), a easily lit-able stove with low maintenance and something that will be classical in design so as it doesn't go out of fashion.

The wood burning experience has to be fun for me because it is a lifestyle choice. There is a real sense of satisfaction when foraging for wood, followed by the gaze of the eye whilst it flickers. The burn is like the beating of a heart in the home.

I researched reviews and prices and came up with some of the best wood burners on the market. It is here that I produce my findings of the very best recommendations.

The Bull Dog!

US Stove Multifuel Corn/Pellet Stove with Legs, Model Number 6041HF

You can see why I call the US Multi-fuel Corn/Pellet Stove the Bull Dog. It's sturdy, strong legs encompassing a wide, but effective body. Looking Stern, but classical, this little beauty might appear stubborn, but has a real warmth to it - not unlike it's furry comparison.

She is versatile and fun. Although this multi-fuel has mixed reviews, burning up all sorts of waste material can have some draw backs (or up draw!), but if you maintain this stove well, it should go on season after season.

Of course, apart from the included blower, the 6041HF can be adapted to take many other materials: cherry pits, soybeans, olive pits, processed silage and bio mass fuel grains. How good is that?

Why don't you take a look at this versatile little number and click on the link?!

Vogelzang "The Performer" Wood Stove, Model TR009

Classical with a Modern Twist!

Look into my eyes ... here comes the Performer!

This classical wood burner has a modern twist and, indeed, when you look into his eyes you will swirl into a world of warmth and relaxation. He has one window which will not obscure your view of his flickering soul.

The Vogelzang Wood Stove will send you in a tizz, but not because of its price. It is a real budget burner which won't break the bank! The TR009 will live up to his name - the Performer talks the talk and walks the walk, but don't take my word for it ... take a look!

Simple But Stylish

The Company England's Stove have aimed high and got there with this Wood Burning Stove. The 50-Sfp12 Wood Heater is simple in design but stylish in nature. As a mid ranger it sells fast because it does what it says on the tin!

Weighing in at only 303 pounds, it is a small but sturdy bit of kit. With its pedestal and cast iron legs, it's height is only a mere 26 inches. What a great figure of a stove this is?!

Maybe now is time to jump on the bandwagon before all of these have gone? Check it out!

Vogelzang TR008 Durango EPA Wood Stove

Although this little stove is not the most prettiest, it certainly is the most practical and efficient of stoves.

The Vogelzang TR008 Durango EPA Wood Stove has been recommended and UL listed by many home insurance companies as a requirement that keeps your home insurance live in case of a claim. This stove even qualifies for a tax rebate in the USA probably because it is so efficient at an amazing 75% long burning capacity.

This woodburner is clean, efficient and sturdy. I couldn't really fault it... not even it's price. Well worth it for fitting as well as its usefulness.
