      Please distinguish corn stoves from wood stoves, wood pellet stoves,
      multiple fuel stoves, gas, oil, electric, propane, and all other non-
      corn fuels. 100% Whole kernel shelled corn from the farm is the fuel
      for corn stoves.

      No fuel cost less than corn. None. Name one.
      Free wood cut-your-own cost more than corn
      considering total tool cost cutting,splitting,hauling,storing, smoke
      damage, doctor bills, lung damage.
      Corn cost more in 1817 than in 2005.
      No stove cost more than a corn stove.

      How often is fuel bought?
      How seldom is a stove bought?

      Which saves more?
      Paying for the fuel or
      paying for the stove?
      The phrase is,
      "Pay me now or pay me later".

      A properly selected corn stove will save enough money the first year
      to pay for the corn stove. Second and subsequent years corn fuel
      cost is relatively inexpensive, comfortable, safe, healthy.
