After more than three decades of success, officials at the venerable Blaze King Industries, Walla Walla, Wash, have introduced their first cast iron wood stove. The Ashford 30 (pictured) is now in full production, and will begin shipping in the next couple of weeks.
“We expected demand to be great, and thus far we have been proven correct,” says Chris Neufeld, vice president, Blaze King Industries. “The first production run was sold out moments after roll-out. With more than 600 dealers in North America, dealers everywhere should have the new Ashford 30 on display soon.”
As a familiar name in the Pacific Northwest, Blaze King founders have long focused on efficient, eco-friendly hearth products, and building them to last.
The company’s growing selection of wood and gas burning freestanding stoves (and inserts) are a tribute to “good old-fashioned values” like quality and safety.
Designers build each stove with an eye toward generating minimal pollutants and conforming to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards. And for a wood stove to be truly efficient, it must also burn less fuel and heat for longer.
“Our wood stoves provide extremely long burn times and phenomenal heat production,” adds Neufeld. “Overall, Blaze King stoves burn up to a third less wood than our competitors’ stoves and with no heat loss. That means you spend less time, money, and effort chopping, hauling, stacking, moving, and loading wood for your stove. It also means less ash.”
