Review of Country Kiln Aurora stove

Aurora Stove - a life saver

Robert 10 years ago

I'm not sure what you other guys are saying about how bad these stoves are. I bought this stove and I am very happy with it. I found this stove to be amazing for its price. The build is a little rough, but I like the style...it's what it makes it Country...and it has so much cast iron! Very heavy stove for its size. I burn wood and coal and get it to burn overnight without any problems. I control the fire easily with the primary and secondry controls and with a damper installed in the flue. Airwash works fine unless you burn the wood touching the stove glass. (tip: in order to keep the glass as clean as possible from soot, the wood logs should be placed in such a manner that the cut surface is not facing to the glass) Now I manage to heat my open space at home and finally get to stay in wearing just a t-shirt and pants in winter. (and I live by the sea!).
