Cast Iron or Steel stove what is the difference?
There is very little difference regarding performance between the two materials when talking about the efficiency of a stove; Cast Iron will generally hold its heat longer than steel, but will take a longer time to heat up. It is made in moulds and can include motifs and patterns whereas steel will always be plain. Cast Iron needs to be “Seasoned” (broken in gently) within the first week of burning to avoid cracking; and is definitely recommended.
