• Affordable Wood Stove  
To make the Ideal Steel Hybrid Wood Stove affordable, we changed from cast iron to steel as our basic building material. Steel costs about half as much per pound as cast iron. We believe that the Ideal Steel Hybrid Wood Stove is the most efficient, cleanest, and longest burning stove in its price range.


• Award-Winning Wood Stove  
The Ideal Steel Hybrid Wood Stove was developed in 2013 as Woodstock Soapstone Company’s entry in the Woodstove Design Challenge. The Design Challenge had 14 finalists from 5 countries competing for a $25,000 grand prize awarded for the best overall performance in 5 criteria: affordability, efficiency, emissions, innovation and market appeal. The Ideal Steel Hybrid Wood Stove was the grand prize winner! Click here to read about the Ideal Steel Hybrid in Popular Mechanics Magazine.


• High Efficiency Wood Stove  
The Ideal Steel Hybrid Wood Stove EPA2020 tested efficiency of 77% and average emissions of 0.89 gm/hr. It will easily burn 12-14 hours, and will heat large areas comfortably. It’s high efficiency means that it will produce up to 131,000 more BTUs per day than a standard non-catalytic stove, making it one of the best wood stoves on the market.

The Ideal Steel is a hybrid wood stove. It has:

(1) a catalytic combustor

(2) a secondary combustion system, and

(3) automatic catalyst air.

Together they provide enhanced viewing pleasure, increased output and efficiency, decreased fuel consumption, and clean burning.

In addition to record woodstove efficiency, the Ideal Steel Hybrid wood stove has a large 3.2 cubic foot firebox, will burn easily for over 12 hours on a load of wood, and will heat large living spaces. All of these features help make the Ideal Steel Hybrid Wood Stove one of our best selling wood stoves today!



Everyone’s house, hearth, and décor is different, so, why not your stove? Lots of people decorate their mantels, their refrigerators, bookshelves, and dining tables with images, photos, symbols, and memorabilia and centerpieces that are important to them. So, why not do the same thing with your wood stove?

The Ideal Steel Hybrid wood stove is the first woodstove that can accommodate owner designed artwork. The sides, andirons, and the cooktop burners can incorporate your design visions. All you have to do is send us a drawing, photograph or image of what you would like to see on your stove and let our artists do the rest. If you are not feeling creative, you can choose a design from our GEARED 2U Design Book. And if you are really adventuresome, you can create a “Trophy Stove” like the Moose Stove and the “Poisson de Manon” pictured at the right. In any event, you get to choose between the 4 basic design options below, and then add any of our standard colors. To view the Ideal Steel Standard Colors, click here.

The IDEAL STEEL Hybrid offers high efficiency heat, a great fire-viewing experience, clean burning and an opportunity to express your own design ideas if you choose to do so.




Your Design Options

  • Essential Wood Stove: We’re always happy to make a stove with no ornamentation (see image on right). All you have to do is tell us what color you want.
  • Design Book: Choose a design from our, always growing, Design Book. There are a lot of good ideas there. Feel free to mix and match designs to develop a look that suits you.
  • Custom Design: We have a Geared 2U Design Service. Tell us what you want, and give us an image, drawing or photo to work with, and let us show you what we can do.

  • Trophy Wood Stove: We can extend the stove well beyond the confines of the basic box. Whether it’s for a special occasion or a special person, we can make your stove into a Moose, a Fish, a Genie, an Angel, or a Mermaid.



Cut-Away View of the Hybrid Wood Stove Combustion System


Secondary combustion occurs across the top of the firebox. The fireback slopes so that you can easily see the secondary flames. Secondary air is preheated by passing across the back of the stove before entering the fireback.

Any exiting smoke and particulates not burned by secondary combustion must pass through a catalytic combustor, where they are ignited at temperatures as low as 400 degrees. The catalytic combustor is made of stainless steel foil, tested and approved for continuous operation at 2,100 degrees F. The thickness of the foil is approximately 50 microns (the thickness of a human hair), which is why it heats up and “lights off” so quickly.

Both the secondary combustion and the catalytic combustor produce heat. Without a hybrid system, some of this heat would be lost up the chimney.

The catalytic combustor is located right under the cooktop, so you get the full benefit of its heat. A radiator also transmits catalytic heat to the sides of the stove. Complete combustion, achievable only through a hybrid combustion system, and good heat exchange are what makes for record 82% efficiency. If the catalyst pointed toward the stack, as opposed to the cooktop, more heat would be lost and efficiency would drop.

The catalytic bypass damper interlocks with the loading door. You cannot open the loading door without opening the bypass damper first. This helps to ensure smoke free loading.

         About the Reservation Process:

GATHERING INFORMATION: We use the reservation process as a “pre-order”. This allows you to communicate to us the stove that you are interested in, and begin the process of determining shipping, customization, installation, and finalizing your order. The reservation is the first step in starting an order.

If you phone us, the process will begin much the same way: Who are you? Where do you live? Which stove are you interested in?  Is it replacing another stove, or is this a new installation? What area are you trying to heat?  Which colors/options are you interested in, etc.?

If you prefer to speak to a customer representative over the phone, please call us toll free at 1-800-866-4344.

CONVENIENCE: You can use our reservation forms to order a stove any time, day or night, 24/7/365, and lock in the current sale price. We do not collect any money or credit card information when you make a reservation.

The reservation form gets your stove request in our production planning, which is important because all of our stoves have custom features (colors, door side, optional ash pans, optional art work, variable leg height, and so on).

SEPARATE FORMS FOR EASE OF USE: We have a separate reservation form for different stove models, because options like colors, artwork, door location (left, right, front), and ash pan availability vary from model to model.

Click the stove you are most interested in to go to the reservation page for that stove. Fill in the requested information and press “submit”

FOLLOW UP: We ask you for the best time, best phone number to follow up. One of our customer service representatives will follow up, answer any questions you might have, schedule your shipment, and ask for a $250.00 deposit to confirm your order.

DOES EVERY RESERVATION RESULT IN AN ORDER/SHIPMENT?: Usually yes, but not always. A reservation begins the ordering process, but there can be quite a bit of discussion between you and our customer service team before a shipment occurs. When we follow up, if we find that your stove choice cannot be safely installed, for example, it is unlikely that we would continue. If we don't think your choice of stove is well suited for the area you want to heat, we would let you know. We want to make sure you are well-informed before your stove is shipped, and that there are no surprises after you receive your stove. Plus, we want you to be happy with your choice of stove for many years to come!
