The Kozi 100 is a simple square design. The freestanding stove is mounted on a pedestal and floor protector. It produces 40,000 btu. and is capable of heating an area of 1,500 square feet. Maximum burn time is 50 hours for the freestanding stove without the hopper extension, and 40 hours for the insert.The optional hopper extension adds fifty pounds fuel capacity and extends the maximum burn time to 100 hours. See comments below. The cheapest version of this stove is designated 'BD' which means black door. The BD version is totally unadorned and functional. The standard version gains a metallic finish door and corner trim.
Standard equipment with this stove is the glass saver, which reduces cleaning, and the spring coil cool grip door handle.
The 'MX' controller provides stove diagnostics in the form of blinking led lights to alert the user to any problems.
