Cast iron wood burning stoves

Our collection of cast-iron wood burning and multifuel stoves. There are examples of cast-iron stoves still going strong after a hundred years of use.

Cast iron and steel wood-burning stoves compared:

  1. Heat Retention: Cast iron stoves tend to hold heat longer than steel stoves. Once a cast iron stove heats up, it will radiate a steady, even heat for a long period. On the other hand, steel stoves heat up and cool down more quickly.

  2. Maintenance and Durability: Cast iron stoves will crack if hit with a hard object though this is unlikely to be a problem unless you are swinging a hammer around. They are usually thicker than steel stoves so will last a lot longer (stoves rust away slowly from the inside over many years).

  3. Aesthetics: Cast iron stoves typically have more decorative options, with intricate detailing and often a more traditional look. Aside from the Saltfire Peanuts which are cast-iron and contemporary which is why they sell so very well.

  4. Price: Steel stoves are generally less expensive than cast iron stoves. However, both types can vary widely in price depending on the brand, size, and specific features.
