I was reading about the Wallas stoves from Finland in the latest Watercraft magazine. The article on the gear in a Golent Gaffer talked about this stove. It burns kerosine or diesel and has a sealed combustion chamber - it gets air from outside and vents to the outside and heats up a cast iron plate that you cook on. Easy to clean and you can install a small blower to the cover and heat a small boat with it.

Am I missing something here? Why use any other type of stove? This one seems great. There is even a two burner model:

and an oven!

Oh yeah, electronic ignition. And 5 litres of fuel lasts 50 hours.
I haven't seen any prices listed - anyone know what they cost?

Steven,

Those do look nice!

I found the USA distributor. They have a website at http://www.scanmarineusa.com/ but no prices listed that I saw.

Check the price and maybe your question will be answered. By the time you get them installed, you are looking at $1100 to $1500. The two burner is not really two burners. They circulate the flame under both plates from one burner.

Nice units, but that is a lot of cash.

Another alternative from Norwegian company Pyro AS. Perhaps not as pretty as the Wallas, but proven in fishing boats in the arctic for years. Price is about the same as the Wallas unit.
