…I’m in love with a wonderful stove…this is the most beautiful, elegant and well designed thing we have every owned. Had a fabulous maiden voyage making pizza in the orchard yesterday, huge hit with the public. Thank you, we LOVE it, great draft, amazing heat holding capacity.Elizabeth Ryan
…I just want to let you know how much I appreciate your help…I have thought of other ovens, but in my opinion the copper oven is the most beautiful and eye catching. I also grew up in Calais and feel that giving some hard working Maine people some business would make the whole experience that much better. Thanks again.Chris Getchell
…Wanted to let you know I fired up the oven and it worked beautifully! The oven got up to temp quite quickly and efficiently – the oven also retained the heat for a long time. Janet and I wanted to let you know at Maine Wood Heat how much we appreciated all your help in helping us select the right model for our Orcas Island home…Geoff and Janet Hamill
…You’ve been wonderful to work with. The shipment arrived today. We have a great RESPECT for Scott and the packing operation. The packing shocked us. The crating was very cool, the way the pieces were all laid out and protected indicated great attention and consideration. Thanks to the crew for all the effort And all the patience.George Monsour
Thank you again, very much, for your time and the opportunity to get this oven. It’s very much the next step I needed to take. I just wasn’t quite prepared for how much it’s like going from riding a mule to stepping into a Cadillac..but that is the fun part!Louise Wakefield
I’m very happy with the oven. It works much better than refractory concrete oven I had in my old house.Steve Harmon
Cheryl, I wanted to express my appreciation for how great I was treated when I interacted with your company. Everyone was so nice to me…Jamie Allman helped build an oven we can all be very proud of.Dan Cardone
