This stove was discontinued in June 2018.  All inventory has been sold.

Heartland's Oval with Water Reservoir

The Heartland Oval has been heating homes for almost a century and today's models offer the same notorious versatility, dependability and comfort as those early wood-fired cookstoves. The added bonus for this Oval is the 5-gallon copper water reservoir which is perfect for drawing a hot bath, washing dishes and humidifying your home.

Your home can remain a refuge from snow, ice, and power failures with a Heartland Wood-burning Cookstove.  The oval can heat up to 1,800 sq. feet.  So enjoy that nice, relaxing hot bath or hot tea in spite of what is happening outdoors.  (With optional water jacket.)

Hot Water Options

The copper reservoir with a tap or the hot water jacket is a great option for your new cookstove.  A water jacket installed is capable of heating a 40-gallon water take in about an hour under normal operation.  Many people choose to run the system on a thermosyphon, no longer requiring electricity.  Wood heat is a dry heat, but the water reservoir allows plenty of humidity back into the room.

*Note:  Make sure to follow the water jacket manual and have a professional install it properly.

Memorable Flavor 

Because the oven heats on all sides, the food cooks evenly.  That's why Grandma always said her pies were cooked best.  Use the warming closet as a plate warmer, rise your dough, or thaw your frozen food.

Make work easier

Don't be concerned about maintaining your Heartland Wood-burning Cookstove.  The fuel can be loaded from the front or the top, the porcelain coated oven interior with an ash pan that slides out makes cleaning easy.
