    The Nova 2 is exactly what we wanted. It looks great and has a nice big window to view the fire. We just had ours installed but it works great so far.

    The Nova is so simple to run that someone used to an older stove might feel like they are "missing something". Nope. It's really as simple as using dry wood, getting it started quickly, and throwing the lever when it's hot. When you need to add more wood you just flip the lever, slowly open the door, load, close, and flip back. There are no other flow controls. If you want a little heat or just some "ambiance", load a little amount of wood. If you want a lot of heat, load it up! I've personally used old Earth Stoves and Quadrafires. They are great but I prefer my Nova so far. I would suggest that if you are at the upper end of the square footage for the rear exit Nova, you should get the Nova 2. The rear exit does lose some heat if it goes outside right off of the stove. Also, shorter firewood lengths for the Nova seem to make life easier.

    We had the Nova installed about 5 weeks ago and we love it! When we burned fires in just the fireplace, it actually caused the house to get colder, and it required constant attention to keep the fire going. When we are burning wood in the Nova it heats the entire downstairs of our 3000 square ft house and it burns with a constant and beautiful flame . Also we can go to bed without worrying about a fire hazard. We couldn't be happier with it. Thank you!

    Very excited to use my new Nova 2! Recently replaced it from an old, very inefficient stove that needed to be retired. The viewing window is amazing and has such a sleek and simple style which I love. It’s the heart of my home! Thank you!

    We took delivery of our Nova wood stove on Christmas Eve, 2020, and it has proved to be a gift that just keeps on giving! Here, in the Pacific Northwest, the days are damp and gray (a lot of the time...), so we keep a fire going all day and often through the night as an element of cheer to balance the weather. Our Nova has been doing that and so much more. Before getting the Nova, we had an old, non-EPA-Certified stove in our home for 35 years and burned a lot of wood--mostly alder and fir, with some maple and madrone--in . Great stove in lots of ways, but....burned dirty and wasn't terribly efficient. Now, with the Nova, we're getting way more heat out of way less wood--and seeing whisps of smoke instead of plumes! We love the way it holds the heat, even after the fire has died down--the heat is so even. Starting fires is also much easier--the stove draws really well. I\'m also appreciating the attention to detail: welds are clean, door fits perfectly, catalytic combuster lever is smooth and doesn't generally get too hot to handle. The window lets us see the source of all the warmth, too! We love this stove and wish that we'd gotten it sooner. And, yes, it cost an extra $300 to ship it to the west coast--but it was worth every penny!

    Previous review: We have two Novas: a super, five star Nova and its miserly, one star cousin. FIVE STARS: The rear vent stove gets 5 stars. It’s a pleasure to use. In the morning, the coals are still warm: we stir them up, add more wood (which catches from the embers), and just keep going. It burns evenly and the firebox stays hot even after the fire dies down. Love the big viewing window and the ease of use. We wish we had two of these…. But we don’t. ONE STAR Our second Nova is a miserly, fire-hating, lump of metal. Its the type of appliance that breaks up long-standing marriages. This second stove is a top vent. It’s miserable. On the second re-visit to try to get it going, our installer gave up on traditional fire building methods and (literally) lit it with a propane blow torch. Which was great. We kept it going for the night but even with an 8 hour burn, it still had hand sized chunks of unburned wood in the center of the stove in the morning. The firebox wasn’t hot enough to light a new piece of wood on the embers. Our installer’s assessment is that the top-vent only wants perfectly dry wood in tiny pieces. Ugh. (Note that we use the same wood as in the other stove.) UPDATE: The rear-vent is still the super star but, with a few tweaks, the top vent is functioning much better: * on the third visit the installer pulled the top vent forward in the fireplace as much as possible creating more air space behind it. This has made the biggest difference. * now we don't fool around: we get this stove as hot as possible as quickly as possible by using lots of kindling and smaller pieces of wood. If the ash in the bottom is low or cooled, we seed some hot ash from the other stove. * we burn in a U-shape. If we can get the back and sides heated up quickly, the stove is happier. The top-vent is still quirky. But I've upped my stars overall to 5 because now that we understand the quirks we can sustain a good fire (and get it started without gnawing our teeth to nubs in frustration). Additionally, the customer service team at MFfire has been helpful in trying to figure our what's up and offering suggestions to help us get the stove functioning more efficiently.

    Awesome customer service!!!! We forgot to order the Nova with the pipe out the top, but they switched it for us just before it needed to ship. The other piping option out the back of the stove wouldn't have worked for us. Burned it twice so far and love it! One negative thus far - we had some issues getting one of the legs put on. Kind of had to force it which wasn't fun.

    Nova 2 and really like it so far. It burns beautifully! They even put a picture we sent them on their facebook. A few tips when using the Nova 2: - Always open the bypass lever before opening the door. We didn't quite understand this at first, but it keep smoke coming out the door - We found it best to crack the front door and then slowly open it just far enough to reload logs into. - Don't forget the first time you burn it, the paint cures! Another thing we forgot, but didn't end up being a big deal. - Build a top-down fire. They told us to do it and it actually works. Much different than how I built a fire in previous wood stoves, but it is easy. Feels a little backwards, but I swear it works.

    We put a Nova in our fireplace. We needed it to be vented from the top of the stove so we requested that. Works great. Replaced an old crappy US Stove we used to have. Wish we did it earlier in the winter.

    We love our Nova 2! We bought it from a local chimney sweep company in MD and absolutely love it. Clean glass, hot burn, idiot proof. Not to mention - it looks beautiful!

    We love, love, love this stove. So warm, attractive design, efficient, clean... there's just nothing bad about this stove at all.

    Our experience with MF Fire has always been great, from the beginning of first interest, to buying our first Nova wood stove. Your customer service has always been a great help answering any questions we have had and also in a timely manner via email.

    I love mine. It is super easy to burn and I had coals every morning in the end of the Spring when I finally got around to purchasing and installing my Nova. I wish I had got off my butt earlier in the winter because the Nova is way better than my previous stove. Trying to get my neighbor to get one for the fall. - Sam

    My wife and I were searching for a wood stove for a few years before finding MF Fire. We previously lived in a house with an old (70's era) wood stove and very much missed having a stove when we moved. The Nova is beautiful and extremely easy to operate (old stove was a lot of work). Load it up, light and go. So easy to use, glass stays clean for a long time. We purchased in late 2018 and had it installed in early 2019. No regrets. MF Fire was very helpful both pre and post-purchase. We are going to buy a Delta fire pit next!

    Super easy to use. 5 stars

    They asked us to write a review and we said gladly!!! We heat our 1,000 sq ft cabin with our Nova and it works great. It is efficient with our firewood and works better than any stoves I have had in the past. They say the glass stays clean and it ACTUALLY does. We also have coals every morning when we wake up so we don't have to restart it. Very pleased with our purchase.

    We bought one from local dealer and its great. Wife loves the look, I love using it. Trying to get my neighbor to swap his old stove out for one. Thanks!

    We love our Nova wood stove! My wife and I bought Nova and heated with it throughout last season (2018). Nova is the easiest to use wood stove I've ever encountered. It produces excellent heat and fits perfectly into our fireplace. Bringing heat into that part of the house (historic older home) allows us to entertain friends in comfort throughout the winter. The MF Fire team did a terrific job helping us pick the right stove and supported us and our installer throughout the installation process. Their post-sale support was as impressive as support before the sale. They followed up and made sure we had all our questions answered and that we were totally satisfied. We couldn’t ask for any better customer care. We are looking forward to adding another MF Fire stove to a home we are currently renovating.

    Purchased Nova in the early spring and had the local stove shop guys install it. They hadn't installed an MF Fire stove yet, but everything went off without a hitch. So far we like it better than the Regency something we had before.

    We got our Nova late in the winter and had to wait for our installer to put it in, but we love it so far. It is very obviously made with high quality workmanship. It heats our home perfectly.

  21. 5 out of 5

    Love our Nova! We use it in our mountain house and it does a perfect job. There is no smoke coming from our chimney when the stove is rocking. Our favorite part is seeing the fire through the glass front door. We are happy our old stove is gone!

    After looking for a couple of years for a stylish but smallish stove that was not imported and a fortune, I discovered MFFire and their Nova. It is exactly what I wanted. My Nova and I are getting to know each other but I think it will be a long an happy relationship! The support for the company has been personal, hugely responsive and knowledgable.!!

    We purchased our Nova wood stove several months ago, but it took a while for our installer to get it installed since they were so busy. But now that it is installed, we couldn't be happier. We had a few questions prior to purchasing and the sales folks at MF Fire answered all of our questions perfectly. 5 star stove

    Our family has been burning for a few weeks and love it! It makes beautiful flames and our glass never gets dirty. We use ours as a way to heat our family room, kitchen, and office and it works great. Highly recommend!

    Just got a nova a few weeks ago. it burns great, puts off good heat, and much easier to use than my previous stove.

  26. 5 out of 5

    Love it. The stove is high quality and super easy to use. Beautiful burn. My favorite part is the glass stays incredibly clean, a pet peeve of mine for other stoves.

  27. 5 out of 5

    Great little stove. Easy to get a fire started. Huge viewing area for a small stove. Solid heat output.

    Just installed Nova this weekend and did my curing burn while I could open my windows. Enjoyed my first full burn last night and absolutely loved it. Great flames, clean glass and no controls to baby sit. My house is a 1250 sq ft rancher- perfect for my space.
