A Multi-Fuel Stove: It Burns Corn, Wood Pellets, Cherry Pits

Most biomass burning stoves relegate themselves to particular types of fuel — for example, a stove that burns corn, will refuse to burn wood pellets correctly. There is, however, a stove called the Countryside Multi-Fuel Stove by Magnum that will burn shelled corn, wood pellets, cherry pits, olive pits, waste paper pellets, and a host of other fuels. This flexibility means you are not tied to a particular fuel for you heating needs. If the orchard down the road has a sale on cherry pits, you are set for the winter. The Countryside stoves come with a "firepot" so that the ashes drop into the ash drawer below the stove. They are available as free-standing stoves and fireplace inserts.
