Jotul F400 Castine Wood Burning Stove Review

Jotul is one of the most popular and oldest makers of wood stoves, so you know you’re buying high quality when you opt for a Jotul. The Jotul F400 Castine is suited to heat small to medium-sized homes with a maximum heating capacity of up to 1,600 square feet.

While this is a well-made stove that takes a classic wood stove look and adds a splash of modern aesthetics, the complaints of the F400 begin and potentially end with air flow issues.

The main complaints center around that the unit doesn’t draw heat very well and has the potential for smoke to fill the unit and potentially the house. While this is definitely an issue everyone should pay attention to, the argument from owners who enjoy this stove is that these complaints stem from improper installation of the unit.

When either contacting an installer or installing this unit take careful measurements on the diameter of the flue to ensure what is currently installed is compatible  with the Jotul F400 Castine unit.

The stove is available in blue/black, ivory, or Jotul enamel colors. The Castine is one of the heavier stoves you will find for its size, weighing in at 375 lbs.
