The Traditions T300P-2 pellet stove by Lennox, the makers of the Whitfield pellet stove, is very attractive, with none of that utilitarian look. Along with the optional log set, and a humidifying kettle on the trivet, it could easily be mistaken for a traditional woodburner.In case of a power outage, the control board will keep its settings and the stove will light itself again when power comes back on.
It comes with a wall thermostat as standard.
The 50lb. hopper provides a long burn time along with low emissions and high efficiency.If you are unsure of the meanings of the terms in the pellet stove review below,or their implications, please go to the Pellet Stove Reviews page for an explanation.
