Cast Iron Stoves from Contura

Who doesn’t love cast iron? The easily formed, tough and beautiful material has been used for so many appliances through our history. Things that should be really stable, strong and heavy are made of cast iron – manhole covers and Grandma’s frying pan, for example. This is the tradition behind Contura’s tough and modern cast iron stoves, designed by young Swedish designers. Whichever cast iron wood burning stove you choose you will get a small and robust stove that shows a lot of light and heats for a long, long time.

Frequently asked questions

  • Do I need a chimney for my cast iron stove?

Yes, you will need a chimney. If your home hasn’t got a chimney, you are able to mount a steel chimney on to the top of your stove instead.


  • How often do I need to clean my cast iron stove?

It depends on how regularly you use your cast iron stove. Ideally, you should clean out the stove’s ashes at regular intervals. Furthermore, during the summer it is recommended that you clean out your stove more thoroughly.


  • What kind of wood do I need to fuel my cast iron stove?

Birch logs, pine and fir trees are excellent for burning.  Oak logs are also a good fuel source, but it is important to mix them with other wood when burning. Oak contains a lot of energy, but also a lot of tannin which is aggressive to both the stove and the masonry.


  • How easy is it to use a stove?

Contura wood burning stoves are equipped with a single control for exact output regulation, which allows simple and precise combustion control. The door, grates and ashbox are also easily accessible.


  • Where can I get spare parts for my cast iron stove from?

Spare parts and accessories can be ordered from your dealer.
