    I agree. I feel like this is being overblown a bit. Ive heard of the odd issue but they are few and far between. There are a lot of people here that burn wood and I would say the majority use blaze kings. They are just that much better.

    I've got a big Dutch west in the house that has the cat reburn, works great also

    Yes just has to be up to temp, or it takes a bit, but heats our 1800 foot house all winter, no issues

    The reason I don’t like the catalytic type is because you can’t use paper to ignite the fire from what I’m told. An ignitor has to be used? Also I have been told that it doesn’t change over to catalytic until it’s 500F. Three stores in Edmonton won’t even carry the catalytic type because they said it’s too much maintenance.

    No problem with paper at all because you are bypassing the catalytic converter when you are lighting the fire. The only thing Ive heard is you dont want to throw glossy pages in when the exhaust is going through the catalytic unit. For me its a non issue because once its fire season you only light the damn thing once all season! It just burns so long that you rarely have to re-light.

    I know I probably sound biased on these things. I have no vested interest in them at all. Just THAT happy with them.

    My stove is in a walkout basement, I use a tiger torch gets an updraft fast and no smoke in house even at -30c. Agreed on glossy paper, corrugated cardboard is a wonderful thing as a fire starter.

    I have a Enviro insert in my fireplace and love it. It's 8 years old and goes all winter unless we are gone somewhere for a few days. It's extremely heavy and built to last

    Anyone ever sprinkle a little coal in the wood stove? Wondering what you need to do to make it work and not melt through or something

    I ended up buying a yotul Oslo 500 stove. Has a side load door as
    well.Came with a screen to put in place of the front door too so you can use it like a fireplace. $2700 with the piping.
