Smoke is a residual product of incomplete combustion. Wood smoke contains fine dust, carbon monoxide and a whole range of other harmful fumes. If we don’t want to breathe these in around the fire, then we have to strive for complete, optimal combustion. Our stove proves this is possible. You will hardly see any smoke escape from the chimney, only vapor: air and water.

  • Measure the moisture

    The most ecological combustion takes place at a moisture level of 13%. You can measure it with this device. It won’t only result in fantastic flames, but also in pizza baked to perfection.

  • The wood supply

    You can add logs at the side of the stove. The pile will shrink while the wood at the bottom burns. This way, you get space on top to add more wood. If you want your logs to burn up completely, you have to cleave them it into fine pieces.

The logs

Use local wind-dry wood with a moisture level of 12 to 18 %. Cleave large logs into smaller pieces with a maximum diameter of 3 x 3 cm. Safely split wood with Kindling Cracker. Got dried prunings? Even better!

The wood supply

Place kindling in the middle of the tray and start the stove with eco-friendly firelighters. Once the fire becomes visible in the wood supply, you fill it with upright logs. Don’t press or stuff!

Lateral flame

After a few minutes of burning - the stove needs to warm up internally - the flames are laterally pulled into the stove and appear behind the glass.

Air flow

The long chimney ensures enough ‘draft’ to provide the right amount of oxygen to enable complete (and thus healthy) combustion. The wood gets burnt almost entirely.

Transfer heat

The fire travels up to the top, the cooking surface, and then goes down alongside the outer layer to transfer even more heat to the wall of the stove.

Hotter and better

The hot air around the central heat chamber serves as a thick insulation layer. This causes the temperature of the fire to become even higher, enabling complete combustion.

Ash drawer

Complete combustion doesn’t only result in lower emission of fine dust and other harmful residual products. It also leaves considerably less ash after burning.

You can remove the ash drawer in its entirety from the stove to empty it.


To ensure optimal combustion, it’s crucial that the wood supply is never empty. If the wood starts smoldering, the combustion isn’t optimal. Always make sure you can admire the flame spectacle behind the front window by continuously adding more wood. And above all: enjoy the warmth and each other.

Is this something new?

The principle of firing very hot and therefore clean and efficient can also be found in high-performance wood stoves for the heating of homes. Not with the standard cast iron stove, of course, but for example with the durable Finnovens and Tighel stoves from De Stoverie.
