With a surround of heat retaining soapstone that goes around the sidelights you see a lot of the fire while the heat lasts for a long time. A lot of people choose to add heat retaining powerstone or a fan to the Contura 596T to gain an extra boost to the heat.
Soapstone stoves produce and store heat at maximum output. Thanks to the heat retaining properties of soapstone, heat is produced at a comfortable and even level. Contura soapstone stoves are available in several sizes.
Soapstone stoves give maximum heat for longer - The soapstone’s long cooling time means that the heat is evenly distributed for a longer period of time. Its ability to retain heat and withstand flames directly makes soapstone a perfect natural material for a stove; it will stay hot for hours without the need for re-filling. That said, the heat from a soapstone stove is even and comfortable allowing you to sit close to it, while the surface of the stone doesn’t get too hot – an added safety advantage for those with young children or pets.
Our larger soapstone stoves allow you to bulk fill for hours of maintenance-free heating. There’s no need to get up in the middle of the night to load the fire, and you can fill your stove in the morning with peace of mind that it will still be hot when you arrive home later.
