Surface thermometer calibrated to measure Fahrenheit temperatures on stove top. Black genuine porcelain enamel on durable steel. Stylish new design features gray, white, and orange burn-temperature zones. Helps you conserve wood due to burning too hot, while avoiding excess creosote by burning too cool. Quality manufactured in our North Carolina factory.
Why it is intelligent to use a woodstove thermometer.
Instructions for Use
Place on your woodstove as recommended by your dealer or manufacturer, usually a position where the surface is hottest. Attaches magnetically.
Note: If your painted woodstove is new, to avoid marking paint, do not use thermometer until the stove paint has cured completely. One hot fire in a new stove will typically cure paint.
Guidelines for Temperature Readings
Consult your stove manufacturer's manual for precise temperature recommendations. See below for approximate guidelines:
Less than 200°C / 400°F: Temperature too low. Incomplete combustion, causing smoke, soot and hazardous creosote. Open draft and/or add dry fuel.
200°C to 350°C / 400°F to 650°F: Safe operating temperature. Complete combustion and best efficiency.
Greater than 350°C / 650°F: Wasting energy, possibly overheating. While high temperatures are often reached on initial firing, should not be maintained for normal operation.
Note: Stove top thermometers are engineered to measure hotter temperatures than those found on the stovepipe. Ideal for stoves with insulated double-wall flue pipe or hidden / inaccessible flue pipe. Quality-manufactured by Condar in North Carolina, USA.
Not every woodstove thermometer is manufactured by the Condar Company. Acquire a genuine Condar thermometer and compare. The bimetallic coil is bigger and better. It is calibrated accurately. And made in Columbus, North Carolina USA with high standards of quality.
"I originally purchased the Rutland because it was at the store I was at and it was cheap so I gave it a try. After having poor results with the Rutland I did some research on the internet and read about the Condar line of thermometers and how much the users liked them. So i purchased a Condar Inferno thermometer because it is engineered and calibrated for use on a stove top, also because of the quality that I read about and consistency of temperature readings".
