What is a Hybrid?

A hybrid combines two combustion systems - secondary burning and a catalytic combustor - to burn everything in the woodsmoke before it exits the stove. Burning everything means the stove produces more heat than other systems, and lower emission. The catalytic combustor ignites at very low temperatures and cleans up low smoldering burns quickly. The two systems work together at medium and high burns to produce beautiful flames and no exhaust.

 Save thousands by buying Factory Direct!

We urge you to compare our wood stoves with other woodstoves on the basis of the price you pay and the  performance, emissions, appearance, customer service support and money-back guarantee you get.
       We build fabulous woodstoves right here in New Hampshire and sell them for very reasonable prices in part because we only sell direct to our customers.  We do not sell to big box stores, little box stores, or anything in between.
       If you purchase a stove at a retail store, 40% of what you pay goes to the store.  When you buy a stove from us, most of that 40% stays in your pocket.
       When you buy an Ideal Steel Hybrid from us, it gets even better.  This stove is entirely made in our New Hampshire facility.  Sheets of metal come in one end of the factory, and finished stoves go out the door at the other end.  

We do all the steel cutting, stone cutting, bending, welding, painting, assembly and customization.  Complete and total process control means you get a better stove at a lower price.
       Another benefit to selling factory direct is that we can provide custom color combinations, and custom designed artwork with our new award-winning Ideal Steel.  Stoves that are sold through stores or made overseas simply can’t  be tailored to an individual customer’s desires.  It's just not possible.
       We don’t feel that we’re in a competition to see who can make the largest number of stoves. We are competing with ourselves to make the cleanest, most efficient stoves, and have the happiest stove customers.  Click here to see how our customers feel about us, and about their stoves.

Direct Sales + Made in New Hampshire = Great Value at a Reasonable Price!
What Makes Us Love Soapstone Warmth?
The warmth of a fire, the charm of watching the flames and the catalytic efficiency of a Woodstock Soapstone stove- a winning combination! Heat- retentive soapstone radiates a steady, even warmth that metal stoves can’t match.

All of our free standing soapstone stoves (wood and gas) provide warmth and sustenance when the electricity is out. Heat and eat no matter the weather!

Mother nature provides the beauty inherent in the soapstone, while we provide the design and engineering to make the most of it. Double walled stone construction and detailed castings ensure beauty and durability.

Visitors are always welcome at our factory/showroom in New Hampshire, where you can see how our stoves are made and watch our craftsmen construct them.

Listen to Our Customers!

"Your stove saved my life." We've been without electricity for seven days. We used our Woodstock stove for heating, cooking, and melting snow. It saved my life. The only thing it doesn't do is play music! The person who designed it is a genius.

"One-of-a-kind craftsmanship is hard to find!"
The heat your soapstone stove produces is even and constant, to say the least! In the morning, we've still got hot coals and the fire re-kindles without a problem. Thanks for a quality, well-built product. One-of-a-kind craftsmanship is hard to find today. You're carrying on a long-lost tradition.
