The Winslow pellet insert, by the makers of the Whitfield pellet stove, is a handsome bay window style which can be adapted to smaller fireplaces by adjusting the hopper size and using a surround kit which moves the fire out into the room by three inches.It has a robust heat exchanger with high capacity to transfer heat to the home.
The fire will cycle to a high combustion rate once an hour which blows debris away from the burn pot and reduces the frequency the burn pot needs to be scraped.
