Not much to say on the topic except that I really, really want to have one of these in my home. Oil is obnoxiously expensive and we do not have natural gas lines in our neighborhood. We have propane, which is HALF the price of oil, but it is only for our generator. The next logical step is then to go the wood stove route. Pellet stoves sound solid as well, but I have not researched them enough to compare and decide which one is better than the other. This company, Rais, make some pretty cool looking wood stoves.
A neighbor has a Jotul stove and adores it so that is also a possibility. They have the old school square looking ones as well as this sleek modern looking one.
