I am seriously thinking about buying a Lopi Lyden wood stove. Anyone have any experience with this stove? I read bad reviews about the company and am leary.

RE: lopi top loading woodstove

I purchased a Lopi Revere last year and burned 24*7 from October to March last/this year. Didn't have a single problem with it, aside from normal newbie wood burning mistakes.

I've also never heard a bad thing about the company, nor a bad thing from other stove owners.

So you know, I believe the proper spelling is Leyden.

Also, check your PM, I'll send you a link to check out for reviews.

Personally I think that's a very nice stove, top loading is a nice feature.

I'm on my second lopi. Wouldn't have it any other way. Either stove performed(s) well. No moving parts on wood stoves, how can any mfg mess that up?
They are pretty stout. I had an answer that burned for 9 years . It was used as an insert to a zero-clearance box fireplace. I am on the third year for my liberty free stander. No issues.

What have you heard that's negative? They make a good product and have been around long enough to back up their stoves.

I goofed!
I bought a Lopi Leyden (thanks "dunadan") on October 10th and never came back to the site. Thank you for your answers.
I read the bad reviews of the manufacturer on
I'd like your help again, but this time, I know how a blog works and I'll check back often.
I'm getting a lot of creosole in my overnight burns. I'm wondering if I should leave the air control pulled out a little.
For twenty years I had an Upland and it was anything but airtight. So this stove is a bit of a mystery to me. Any help will be apreaciated.
