The Elm stove is one of the finest cast iron wood stoves ever manufactured.
A blend of sculptural elegance and innovative design, The Elm wood stove was handmade in the mountains of Vermont from 1976-1989.
“Through the years from 1976 to about 1988 the Elm was produced in both catalytic and non-catalytic models in three basic sizes, being 18″, 24″ and 36″ log capacities. As wood stove manufacturers we were subject to a series of strict testing procedures. Both safety and efficiency were tested. In the end it was probably the cost of the testing that finally caused the company owners to decide to end production. It was costly to keep re-engineering and retesting the stoves to pass those standards. As a result the company does not exist, and original equipment replacement parts and procedures are hard to come by.”
