Can all pellet stoves on the market burn corn?
If you like the idea of heating with corn, then you may be wondering if any pellet stove will burn corn.
No, but many companies are trying to convert wood pellet stoves to burn corn or a corn, wood pellet mix. We sell the Magnum Countryside pellet stove which was the first nationally certified Flex-fuel burning stove on the market.
The Countryside, Baby Countryside, Winchester, and Country Flame Harvester and Crossfire pellet stoves can ALL burn corn, wood pellets or a combination of corn and wood pellets along with wheat and some other types of pellets such as cherry pits or olive pits.
If you want to read some stories about owners of these pellet stoves, check out, “A Heart Warming Story: Buying Corn from a Neighbor” about the Winchester pellet stove and “A Heart Warming Story: We Cut Our Fuel Oil Usage” about the Magnum Countryside pellet stove mentioned above.

My husband and I are looking for a 12 Volt pellet Stove. What are my options?
There are several options for you. You can either purchase our DC model Winchester or Baby Countryside models or you can purchase the Countryside model 3500P and add a 12 volt inverter convertor. The units will run on 120 volt power until the electricity goes out and then automatically switcch to 12 volt DC power. All of these models will also run on total DC input, solar or wind generated electricity. Contact [email protected] for more information.

Greetings, we have one of your countryside stoves and am more or less satisfied. We bought this stove a few years ago and as soon as we lit it we started to save money on propane. What we did find was that it could not keep up, given the square footage of the house and when the temp dips below twenty degrees or so. We really like the concept, but it would be nice if there was some way we could get the heat to our furnace ducts for more even heat distribution. It sure gets nippy back in the bedrooms. Any ideas?
Not sure what your square footage is but a normal Countryside stove will heat in excess of 3500 square feet of space. It depends on where you locate the unit, how is your circulatory pattern in the home and if you use your furnace fan to distribute the heat sometimes. You don’t have to hook into the ductwork, just run the furnace blower on manual sometimes to get the heat moving around the home. A ceiling fan in the room where the unit is also helps move the heat out of the room and into the rest of the home. For more info email [email protected].
