    Love it! It makes me feel warm just looking at it. We have a wood burning stove that comes in handy when the power goes out in the middle of a blizzard!

      Ah, blizzards…I wish we would have those here in Ohio:(

    We have a similar looking stove, but it is electric. You can operate it with or without the heater and I love it. It makes the family room look cozy on a cold, winter day, such as the one we are having today.

    I was wondering, how often do they have to put coal into it to keep it going? I love wood stoves and fireplaces. Just something about them.

    Kevin, better be careful what you wish for. You just may get that blizzard.
    Here in MO, tonight will be 13 degrees and tomorrow night it will be 10 degrees. b-r-r-r

    We enjoyed our woodburner.It kept our old farm house very warm. We are under a winter storm warning at the moment. We have downsized so no more wood burning.

    We have a Hitzer coal-burning stove, not wood. My husband shakes it down morning and night and feeds it. Ours is gravity feed, with a “hopper” right on top of the stove. As the (chestnut size) coal burns in the firebox, the coal sifts down from the hopper. We shake & feed it morning and evening, but could probably get away with less. Love it! Good, even heat, not the up and down of a wood stove (we have one of those as well, in a different part of the house). There is also a blower on it, which we never use. It’s the only thing electrical on the stove.
