The rugged Dutchwest with its forerunner well know as the Cosolidated Dutchwest is just simply a workhorse. Somewhat utilitarian when compared to the original Vermont Castings units that are all made in the Vermont foundry. Three sizes let you choose the right catalytic wood heater that will excel in burn times, easy side loading, cook top availability and simplicity. In fact simpliciity might be the key to the large numbers actually heating farm homes, ranches and cottages. Great heaters and consistent since the 80’s. Also features a functional ash pan. Medium priced with many features.
