Compatibility of Pellets and Corn wood stoves

It’s easy to think that pellet stoves and corn stoves can use the same fuel because they are similar in construction and operation. But this is not the case.

Bringing wood pellets to a corn stove is not a good idea. Corn stoves are designed to work with the unique ways corn kernels burn, such as their size, shape, and energy. Adding wood pellets to a corn stove can make the burning process less efficient, the stove produce less heat and even damage its parts.

In the same way, you shouldn’t try to burn corn in a pellet stove. Pellet stoves work best when they burn wood pellets, which burn differently than corn. If you try to burn corn in a pellet stove, it might not burn completely, which could cause more pollution and damage to the stove.
