Cast Iron Stoves

Cast iron is a solid material that withstands very high temperatures. For this reason it is a good idea to choose a wood-burning stove where the parts most subject to heating, such as the inside of the door and the base of the wood-burning chamber, are made of cast iron.

In our stoves we always use cast iron parts where the temperature is higher. These are, for example, the internal frame of the door and the bottom of the wood-burning chamber.

Our TT30-series stands out from our other models. Here the cast iron is also used in the top part, the wood compartment door and the main door. This is to give the stoves of the series a more rustic look, in combination with the elegant Scandinavian design. You can see our TT30 series below, or alternatively view all of our wood-burning stoves in our catalogue of wood-burning stoves.

What is cast iron?

Cast iron is a material that withstands large fluctuations in temperature and also very high temperatures. This makes it especially suitable for wood-burning stoves, more specifically for the bases in the wood-burning chambers and for the internal door frame, where temperatures become very high.

What are the advantages of cast iron?

There are many advantages to choosing a cast iron stove.
The material:
• Withstands large temperature fluctuations and very high temperatures.
• Conducts heat well, which is distributed evenly and effectively.
• Retains heat well, so it is an effective form of heating.
• Is very robust and, if treated carefully, can last for many generations.
• Has a rough and rustic surface which gives it a country feel.

What are the disadvantages of cast iron?

Cast iron is perfect for retaining heat, but that also means it takes longer to heat up. If you are looking for a wood-burning stove that heats up quickly, perhaps avoid choosing a stove with too much cast iron.
