“My new SteelCat activates much faster than the original ceramic combustor. Now, I can use my DutchWest stove at a lower, more comfortable temperature. Makes for a nice even burn.”

The option to upgrade your ceramic The option to upgrade your ceramic CC-001 combustor to SteelCat is available only by ordering direct from Condar's factory. Advanced technology offers you:

  • A more durable honeycomb. Can't crack or crumble, even at highest operating temperatures.
  • Less build-up of wood ash, within the honeycomb cells. Sharp steel edges actually "cut" ash as it goes up the flue. Better air flow, less cleaning maintenance.
  • Lower "light-off" temperature. Engage your draft bypass at 100 degrees lower temperature than with ceramic honeycomb.
  • Steel heats up faster than ceramic. Recovers more usable heat from wood smoke.

Achieve optimal performance from your woodstove with premium quality SteelCat Combustors by Condar. A smart investment (only $49 more for the CS-001 upgrade) that will help you save on maintenance and fuel costs over time. Made in USA.

“We started heating with wood in 2006. Four years later, the original catalytic combustor in our Dutchwest stove was noticeably less efficient. So, we purchased a SteelCat combustor from Condar for the next season, and the improvement was immediate. We used less wood and stayed warmer all winter. You guys do a great job!”
