Hearthstone Bennington Wood Burning Stove Review

The Hearthstone Bennington 8350 offers an impressively powerful heating output of 70,000 BTUs when fully loaded meaning it’s able to heat even the most spacious living spaces. Aesthetically, the stove leaves its mark too, with its charming double-wall cast iron frame and built-in rear heat shield.

The Bennington 8350’s large firebox not only allows for a larger load of wood to be added, but it also serves as a convection chamber that enables hot air to circulate within and then be distributed throughout your home to provide a good amount of heat.

The Bennington 8350’s non-catalytic combustion system produces more heat with less wood.  A large, self-cleaning window means you can relax and enjoy the view of the flames for hours with little maintenance required.

Owners have mentioned the side loading door is difficult to latch properly. Also, as with many stoves that have a self-cleaning glass feature, owners sometimes comment on the unit’s glass not being so self-cleaning. 

A sweet spot for area this is able to efficiently heat seems to be between 1,200-sq/ft – 1,800-sq/ft. Also the model seems to work well once you learn how to handle it properly.
