Perhaps it is because solid fuel seems to be a more natural fuel, it is often assumed to be a simple fuel to burn, but the reality is that it is the inconsistency of solid fuels which make the design of a good multifuel stove such a challenge. The Stanford multifuel or Harmony multifuel stove has two simple controls, one used when burning wood and the other when burning coal, and for the user they can be regarded only as a means with which to control the rate at which the fuel is burned. Nestor Martin Efel has taken care of all the other little details such as efficiency, glass which remains clean and constant heat output.
As a choice of fuel, gas gives outstanding controllability and a reliability of supply which is unrivalled. For the user it means a fuel which responds immediately to changes in control settings and a fuel that needs no understanding or preparation. For the stove designers the Harmony and Stanford Nestor Martin Efel, gas stoves, whether liquid petroleum LPG or natural gas, is such a consistent fuel that gas stoves can be designed to extremely tight specifications with efficiencies maximised to the absolute properties of the fuel.
The heating oil kersoene we use is only one of thousands of diverse petroleum products essential to our lives, from paint, ointments, dyes, detergents, electrodes and chewing gum as chemists continue to refine and manipulate its complex molecular structures to our benefit. But sadly the association oil has with technology means that many people regard heating oil with suspicion and a fuel which should be burned out of sight. Since the foundry began in 1854 the philosophy at Nestor Martin Efel has always been that designing to allow a fuel to release its heat in the most natural way possible is efficient, less damaging to the environment and visually attractive. Oil is no exception to this philosophy and within their oil stoves the Harmony and stanford are oil burners which use no fans, pumps, nozzles, or even wicks. The oil is simply warmed to a vapour as it enters the burner and burns freely within the stove, where it can be observed through the glass panelled door of the stove.
