Made in US?

Asked by Ann January 15, 2019

No. China. Pieces are cheap and loose fitting. Hard to find chimney attachment that attaches to stove. Notice OVAL shape. Not standard.

Can wood be burned in this stove, or is it recommended to use only coal. This looks like a great ...

Asked by Johnny57 August 10, 2018

Of course -- if it can burn coal, it can burn wood. It can't be advertised to burn wood because it's not been certified by EPA for that purpose. However, you must look at the size and shape of the firebox, and remember that it has to be fed through the top. It's not designed to accept anything large or long, and wood, coal, or whatever that's bigger than about a five inch cube will be difficult, or impossible.

what size wood does it take? need to know before I split wood for it?

Asked by waterbaby February 11, 2018

You're allowed to use small amounts of wood to get the coal started. This explains the large pile of cord wood you have stashed in the back yard. Lol - it's prettysmall for wood. Some people burn "Wood Bricks" in it. More efficient that way.

Where do you buy coal in Mississippi?

Asked by Jo February 1, 2018

Unfortunately we do not know the availability of Coal. you may need to go to your local store and ask.

Do you sell this exact style in a wood burning stove?

Asked by reddinl January 15, 2018

DUE to EPA regulations this item is not available in a wood Burning option. because it is not EPA certified for burning wood, we cannot market it as able to burn wood.

Can this stove burn both nut and pea coal?

Asked by stoveman January 13, 2018

we dont recommend that size coal as it can fall thru the grate. We recommend Lump coal.

Why do you have it advertised as a coal burning stove , if you can only use wood in it ????????

Asked by buck February 16, 2017

Note the manufacturer's answer--many stoves made for wood or coal can now be sold--but only as coal stoves because they do not meet EPA standards for wood stoves. The EPA regulates manufacturers, but not users, so people burn wood in them all the same. I have had both wood stove and coal stove, and would make two points. First, the best designs for wood are not good for coal, and the best designs for coal are not good for wood. For wood, there must be air input above the fuel, while for coal it must be below the fuel. That is why wood stoves burn on a flat hearth, while coal burns on a grate. There are many other issues for being good stoves--being air tight, for instance, keeps soot and smoke out of the house. More heat is also generated if the stove has passageways for the hot gases to work their way to the chimney. Because this is a traditional coal stove design with simple radiant heat, burning wood will go through wood very fast, with a lot of the heat going up the chimney. Also, wood has to be cut short and not thick like fireplace logs. I would crack a window to make sure I don't get murdered in the night by the fumes, since it is not airtight. But in a shop with some outside air it would be fine.

whats the best way to start coal burning in this stove?

Asked by Robert December 17, 2016

The best way to start a coal fire is to start a small wood kindling fire. The fire from the wood will help the coal reach temperature to burn.

The stove is an excellent coal burner, shake it down, fill it with coal, let it burn a little while, and bank it off. Burns all night.

It serves the purpose
I guess it was the name that attracted me. (Rancher, not Vogelzang). Cookie wanted a small stove to cook on in case the electric went out. That happens frequently out here on the ranch. It will serve the purpose. I took the advice of another reviewer and plopped the stove out in the middle of the north 40 and lit her up. The stench that came off the unit kept all the varmits away for miles. If I had burned off the paint in the cookhouse, I'd a been in the doghouse for a long time. Now this here stove has a way of warming you twice. The first time is splitting up that tiny firewood that you have to squeeze through the lids. The second is when you burn it. Wish I had better access to soft coal. As far as quality goes, it isn't half bad. Those Chinese must be still pretty new at casting so they build it with a lot of slop in the joints. It is like a coat that fits but only because it is one size too big. Overall, we really bought it for the looks, not for serious heating.

I will admit the legs were troublesome getting on but we did get them on. We purchased a round cast iron flat skillet and drilled holes in it and cut the handle off and set it in the bottom of the stove to make it a wood stove only. We also drilled some holes in the top of the right front lid to create an air supply and used a pretty glass candle holder to limit the air intake at night while we slept. 98/100 we had coals in it when we got up and did not have to relight it in the morning. We LOVE this stove so much we bought a second one for our new home. The paint does burn off quickly and it will need a new coat of paint after the first year of use. Just buy good quality high heat stove paint and you wont have any trouble making her look wonderful again. This is the best stove we have had and believe me, we went through MANY before finding the right stove for our small home. And I love the fact I can cook on it when the power goes out even in the summer. We simply opened the windows to let the heat out during and after we were done cooking with it. Cant say enough about this wood stove ! Its perfect.

bad paint!!!!!!
The paint is very poor,,,, smoked very bad first fire!!!!!! Beyer have windows open!!!! not good for house!!!! legs didn't fit good, poor quality!!

Response from Vogelzang Product ExpertMar 9, 2015
We are sorry to hear that you're upset. With the smell, it is standard the first few fires for the paint to cure and smell that. It is in your manual that it will happen and we recommend burning it outside. Maybe this will help with future references. Thank you Vogelzang

Quality Construction. Could use some improvement in casting legs to fit.
Product could be greatly improved if equipped with hinged door on the lower ash compartment and a back in the ash pan. Legs did not fit properly and were difficult to install. Grinding edges of some legs and reaming bolt holes was required to get proper alignment and fit. Lid lift handle does not fit slots in lids.
