Lopi Liberty

General Review:

Lopi has been making wood stoves for a long time, so one can expect them to have wood stoves of different sizes, including fairly large ones. And then there's the Liberty. Able to accommodate even 24-inch logs, the Liberty has one of the biggest, if not the biggest, firebox to be found in wood stoves. 30 inches wide, over 32 inches tall, and almost 500 pounds, this is definitely a heavyweight in the industry, and what's more, it's also a contender.

Key Features:

. The Lopi Liberty has only 2.6 grams of emissions per hour, making it one of the cleanest burning stoves ever made.

. It has a heating capacity of up to 2,500 sq. feet.

. It can achieve a maximum burn time of 12 hours.

. It has a very large firebox: 3.1 cubic feet.

. It can accept logs as large as 24 inches.

. It relies on natural air flow, not on blowers, through a convection system that is standard on Lopi stoves.

. It is also approved for use in mobile home installations.


At first glance, the Liberty is already attractive: a large, elegantly-designed viewing glass can offer a spectacular view of fire burning wood; the black exterior is made of thick steel plates, which ensures durability; the fact that it's large means it can hold quite a bunch of wood, perhaps long enough to burn all night. Learning the specifics only makes it so much more attractive: it's a very clean burning stove; it can heat an area of 2,500 sq. feet; it can burn for a maximum of 12 hours on a full load. It is 79% energy efficient, which is definitely an advantage since people always want value for money, especially in high-end wood stoves. On top of all that, because it has a steel exterior, the Liberty has a cooktop surface that one can use for heating soups or cooking hot meals on cold Winter days.


The Liberty is a large wood stove, and while most other large wood stoves tend to use 8-inch flue collars, this one uses only a 6-inch flue collar. This can be a minor problem if one is just buying the Liberty to replace an older wood stove of the same size. Adjustments can be made to the flue collars, however, and this is by no means a perrmanent problem.

Final Thoughts:

It's a given that larger wood stoves burn longer than smaller wood stoves, but even among large wood stoves, the Liberty is a notch above most. Not all of them can match its advantages, much less top them, and while it does have a minor issue with the flue collar, this problem can be fixed with a few adjustments. If one happens to be in the market for large wood stoves, then the Liberty might just be what he's looking for.
