The place was Norway, where winters are long and cold. The year was 1853. That year, a ten-year-old boy named Edvard Grieg, who would grow up to be a prominent composer and a national hero, was just starting his fourth year of piano study. Meanwhile, outside the town of Christiana, the Kvaerner Brog Foundry was established. That foundry would become Jøtul, one of the leading manufacturers of quality cast iron wood and gas stoves. Today, Jøtul gas and wood-burning stoves are manufactured all over the world, with plants in seven countries and sales across the globe. Jøtul stoves, fireplace inserts and accessories are build to provide trouble-free service for decades. Check out our selection of Jøtul heating products at one of our showrooms today.
