The Vermont Castings Encore was released originally in the mid 90’s. It was huge success and being copied is said to be the highest form of flattery! It has been copied but certainly with all the improvements and additions is still produced proudly in the Vermont foundry. It is one of the easiest stoves to use. The swing out ash pan and the slip- over and lift cover make handling hot ashes so much easier on long cold nights. But as handy as the ash pan is the top loading feature is priceless for the serious wood customer. There are to many features to review in this short caption-enamel colors available, reversible collar, warming shelves and the list is long. Come see it on our showroom floor-great for 1300-1900 square feet of heating.
