The Magnum Baby Countryside stove is designed to burn a variety of fuels, including shelled corn, wood pellets, cherry pits, and olive pits, along with other fuels that normally would fill up landfills, the manufacturer says. The stove has an electronic design that allows the stoves to run on a 12-V backup battery, so even during power outages, the stove will heat a home. The Magnum Baby Countryside has a safety pressure sensor that monitors negative pressures that can affect the unit. The stove features a low- and high-temperature auto shutdown monitor. Each unit contains an advanced insulation design that makes the stove's top and sides cool to the touch, states the company.
