The Vermont Castings Defiant woodstove offers more than heat: it’s a skillfully crafted, timeless piece of American history. In fact, the last original Defiant Parlor Stove is located in the Smithsonian’s National History collection. Named over 40 years ago to “defy the wintery blast,” today’s Defiant does that and more. It’s perfect for mid-sized and larger rooms.
The Defiant is designed with convenience in mind. You can easily load wood from the top, minimizing effort and keeping smoke and embers contained. Includes an exclusive swing-out ash pan and handled cover, which allows you to cleanly remove ashes, even when the stove is hot. Enjoy longer burn times with more even heat with thermostatically controlled combustion.
The Defiant burns up to 56,000 BTUs and heats up to 2,800 square feet. This stove has 77% HHV efficiency and produces up to 14 hours of heat from a single load of wood.
New 2020 EPA regulations require wood burning heaters to emit less than 2 grams/hour of soot. The EPA certified Defiant is a clean burning wood stove, with only 1.3 g/hr of particulate emissions.
