This is the Russo woodstove I bought used 20 years ago, and inserted, with a stainless chimney liner, into the fireplace 3 years ago. In 09/10 and 10/11 I burned 17 face cords of wood per winter, with continuous fire for 190 days each year. No ash pan. Hot clean outs and hot chimney cleaning, rekindle from embers. 1 match per year. No need for such efforts this year. I think I paid $100 for it. It’s wide open and at about 450F here, on it’s way to 700F to clean the tube. Flossing between brushings.
