For all things barbecue and fireplace, visit ER Energy Home in Fort Bragg. Divided into two sections, the shop offers an array of gourmet cookware, gifts and knives, as well as an impressive collection of indoor freestanding wood and pellet stoves, outdoor grills and fire pits.
You may remember that I dream of a kitchen with a fireplace to curl up by in my cozy reading chair. (Yes, I’m a romantic at heart.) It’s no surprise I fell in love with the Lopi Liberty, a beautiful wood stove with a two-tiered flat top cooking and warming surface that would fit perfectly in this kitchen of my dreams. Reminiscent of those wood stoves in many European homes I visited, the Lopi Liberty in matte black offers heating, beauty and flexibility in cooking with a surface temperature of up to 600 degrees.
Though ventless gas varieties of “fireplaces” are available, this is the real deal: it is wood burning, stout and hearty. Someday,
it may grace my kitchen. Though at $2499 it may be awhile.
