Wood Classic

Overall Rating:
    read reviews (12)   |   write a review

The Wood Classic ranks in the top 10 of all stoves for EPA listed BTU output.  And, when compared only to similar non-catalytic stoves, ranks even higher.  The Wood Classic has more than a decade of proven performance under its belt, and a fair amount of that from cold north Idaho winters.  The Wood Classic boasts a number of "ease of use" features that make it a real workhorse stove.  The deep, north-south loading firebox will accept up to a 20" long piece of wood, leaving ample room for the common 18" wood length.  The optional ash pan is sizeable and handy. The real benefit to our "live" ash pan system is the ability to empty the pan first thing in the morning with coals still in the stove.  Other "plug" type systems need the fire to be out.

Jeff and his warm wife

I don't usually write reviews, but...
I write this as I sit with my feet up to my Kuma Classic Wood stove. I have searched for years to find a wood stove that is safe, efficient, holds a fire, and a looks good. I have bought and used Jotul, Blaze King, Lopi, Schrader, something homemade, etc. all claiming that they could heat a 2500 sqft 100+ year old farm house. They all failed for many reasons. I was skeptical, with good reason, that the Kuma Wood Classic stove could do the job as they claim. Since I installed it two months ago, it has preformed well. I'm impressed as this has been some of the coldest winter weather that Idaho has experience in the last 20-30 years. Here are some reasons why I like this stove. First safety, this stove loads wood long ways into the fire box instead of horizontal, very important. This way a burnt log doesn't roll out on the floor when you open the door and burn the carpet, thanks Lopi. My wife was pissed >:( The Kuma stove has steel re-burner tubes that burns the gasses and particles instead of going up the stove pipe, unlike Schrader. And, not like the ceramic catalectic burners in some stoves which you need to bring the stove up to a certain temperature in the fire box to make it work, thus causing a melt down and cracking of the interior box. Thanks Blaze King for almost burning my house down because the stove pipe got too hot. Yes, we had flames :( And, the ceramic catalectic burner burns out unlike Kuma's design. $$$ to replace it, unlike Kuma who guarantees their stoves and parts. I was impressed with the heated air displacement from my Kuma stove with the blower attachment. It blows at 45 degrees upward and outward spherically from the rear forward, yet remains cooler at the back. Like shown in the picture, we left enough space in back between the wall and stove (36" to the wall corner) to dry our boots and gloves. It does great without melting them. It also brings the house up to temperature quicker than any of the other stoves; and I have even cooked breakfast and made coffee on the stove top. Getting the ash catcher attachment is a big plus. Less mess and ash floating in the air. Also 95% of the wood/coals are consumed as the fine ash falls through the grate into the ash box, thus leaving the charcoal behind to be burned. I even bent my ash shovel at 90 degrees for scraping ashes as I no longer have to shovel them. All you have to do is pull the hot coals from the back to the front of the stove and put the new wood on top. That simple. This is the first stove I have owned that heats 2500 sqft and holds a fire for 8 hours, as the Kuma company claims. Sorry Jotul, close but not quite, your stove is cute but fragile, and it can't really hold up to the claims. The stove had to run full throttle to keep this house at temperature. Kuma is strong, heavy, and handsome; and it stands up to its claims without running at max. The only time I have it at max is when I am getting the fire started Believe me, I tested this Kuma stove and the people who built it and sold it. Yup, talked to them before it was bought. All good. I now sleep well at night (8 hours) knowing the house won't burn down, and I will have hot coals waiting for me to start the morning fire. My newspaper box is filling up because I don't have to start many fires. My only negative, what am I going to do with all these boat anchor stoves sitting on my deck?

Our Kuma Stove
We are near the end of our second winter (Jan 23, 2017) with our Kuma wood stove and we are still loving it. The glass window stays clean during all phases of the burn giving us the idea view. The first and second burns inside produce the most beautiful experience and heat. The fan pumps the heat out into our room quickly keeping us warm during the coldest days of winter and the smoke is nearly invisible but during the early stages of burning. I do not think I can think of a single issue I have with our stove. Thank you Morton's Stoves in Battle Ground and Kuma.

Excited

My wife and I are very excited about our new stove. It heats so much more than our old stove. All about Chimneys did a great job removing and installing, then taking the time to give us tips on using it.

Easy to Load

This stove is easier to load and to remove ashes than our older stove. We love the ability to load at night and have a nice warm house in the morning. It is a nice looking stove. The installation guys were great as usual, (they have cleaned and done repairs on the old stove for years). The guys at the shop in Rathdrum were wonderful. Answered all of our questions.

More than 12 hour burn time

Our Stove is Wonderful, it shuts down like its suppose to and you can see the flame and it doesn't make the window black. More than 12 hours later I still have wood in the stove.

Performs very well

This is my first wood stove and I absolutely love it. It is very well built compared to others that I have looked at. This stove seems to be very efficient and puts out a great deal of heat. It fires up quick and burns completely. I have used it as a primary heat source and it has performed very well. I am pleased that it is capable of heating my entire larger home...not just the room it sits in. I wanted a stove with minimal maintenance that I can "fire up and forget about" and this seems to be it. I installed it myself in November, it is now March, and I haven't had to do a thing other than emptying the ash pan regularly and clean the glass occasionally. I probably wouldn't even have to clean the stove pipe or chimney the way it looks. I used a larger pellet stove for the previous two years but it was too expensive to operate as it burned 3 bags per day on high. It also required at least one weekly cleaning which wasn't difficult but my new Wood Classic requires less time and effort to maintain and I get more heat out of it. Thanks for a great product...it's nice to be able to buy something that is still manufactured with quality and integrity in mind.

Heats a Large Area

Works great & heats a large area, savings us using as much oil to heat other areas. It will pay for itself in 2 or 3 years, or less

Easy to Operate

Installed it myself with my son's help. Replaced a Vermont Castings Encore. Am still breaking the Kuma in but am very impressed with how much more manageable and easier to operate it is than the Vermont Castings was.
