Is Cast Iron Better Than Steel For A Wood Burning Stove? [SOLVED]

The most common question asked is whether cast iron will crack 👍 We’re selling selling over ten thousand cast iron stoves over a seven year period and have only experienced a few cracked stoves 👍 This is often caused by over-firing in the early stages; cast iron stoves need “curing” as the fresh cast iron can be brittle fresh out of the mold 😎 It is often the tops that will crack as this takes the brunt of the fire. The tops can usually be removed by simply unscrewing four bolts. All cast stoves that we’ve seen have this capability. Other manufacturers might be different.
Steel stoves are more efficient at heating up and delivering heat to the space faster than cast iron stoves. However, cast iron stoves, being heavier, take longer to generate heat and spread it around the room. This mass of metal has an advantage: it can be used to heat up the room faster. significant heat sink for the slow release of gentle heat after the stove’s fire has gone out – but only providing the stove has been at operating temperature for a good hour or so. Although a steel-bodied stove can still achieve this, it won’t keep its heat as well. So, essentially it’s a lifestyle choice – if you need fast heat then choose steel and if you want longer lasting Heat up to the early hours of the morning, and then cast iron.

Although we can see and hear the numbers about how much heat is created in a wood-burning fireplace, it’s difficult to grasp the impact this has on its body. Cast-iron was a much better quality steel than the available years ago. This is why it’s only now that the steel has become so much more affordable. last 20 years or so that we have seen major improvements in the type and quality of steel Stove manufacturers now have a viable option.

According to the professionals from material it was constructed in is very important when selecting a wood-burning or multifuel stove. Cast iron has always been a superior option. due to its heat retaining properties Iron was known in its early years for being tough and durable. Things have moved on however and now the durability of quality steel stoves is equal to that of cast iron. While cast iron has heat retention properties that are still beneficial to some, it is not as efficient as steel. Steel will heat faster so you can get home quickly from work.
