This high temperature stove thermometer is designed to use on the surface of your metal woodstove. It may be placed on the top, or on the front or side surface. Magnet will hold to steel at temperatures up to 800°F (425°C). Place on your woodstove as recommended by your dealer or manufacturer, usually a position where the surface is hottest.
If your painted woodstove is new, to avoid marking paint, do not use this stove thermometer until the stove paint has cured completely. One hot fire in a new stove will typically cure paint.
For most woodstoves, ideal operating efficiency is between 400°F and 650°F (200°C-350°C), the middle zone indicated by the pointer.
Temperature below 400°F (200°C) indicates a smoky, dirty fire that causes creosote in your chimny,a safety hazard.
Above 650°F (350°C) you waste wood and possibly cause damage to your wood stove due to excessive heat. Over-firing a metal wood stove consumes wood without generating additional room heat, because energy is lost up the stove pipe.

Good. It’s an inexpensive but invaluable piece of equipment if you want to keep your stove within the correct temperature range.
It defiantly helps keep the glass and firebrick clean when it burns within the recommended temperature range.
Don’t know about the other models but this one is fine.
Ordering easy and delivered quickly.

Great little device that fixes magnetically to the side of the stove. I can monitor constantly the temperature of the stove without gettin up from my armchair!
Well recommended buy for us stovies.

Essential Equipment This is such a critical component for firing up multi-fuel or log burners that I wonder why the thermometer is not a standard item with every stove purchase. The operating temperature of the stove is THE most important measure to help keep tars and creosotes from forming on your liner or flu.
