...which is why I would highly recommend anyone buying a wood cookstove to opt for the coal grate option. Coal burning (anthracite coal...NOT bituminous) for any length of time after wood burning tends to help dry out creosote. You could use wood seasoned three years of more...the dryer the better, and you could also use Cre-Away powder (by Saver Systems) to help with creosote. I have found the Amish to build products that are practical, that is, they simply work for what they are intended for, though very plain. If you want a stove to look at, buy one to look at. If you want something that works without fail (the majority of the time...if it's failing they will change it until it works) and heat is the top priority, or cooking and heating, then look no further. Scroll down here for history ... About — Heco . I agree...I'd like to see the reburn in action. However, being the maker worked for DSM I expect the reburn will be as good as the DS Comformax 75 and Energymax 110/160...which are really good. Nice slow secondaries, or raging secondaries...how ever you set it.
