Moskow specs RAIS Komba wood-burning stoves for their form as well as their function. The Scandinavian-designed units' fire-boxes are tightly sealed to burn efficiently and are powerful enough to heat up to 1,292 square feet of space. “The stoves can be adjusted so that a few logs will burn and heat all night long,” Moskow says. The 24¾-inch-by-22-inch-by-43¼-inch stoves come with soapstone or steel panels and a soapstone baking liner and top plate. RAIS, 888.724.7789; www.rais.com.
