Like RAIS wood stoves, this gas-burning appliance has a modern, sculptural look. It can be connected to either LP or natural gas with a direct-vent chimney. The Danish-built Gabo, with an efficiency rating of between 72% and 74%, has a maximum output of 32,000 BTUs, enough to heat 970 square feet of floor area, according to the manufacturer. A curved glass door allows the fire to be seen, and a remote-control device is available as an option.
The Gabo is available in black or gray steel with an optional soapstone top plate. It requires 2 inches of clearance to the back wall and 6 inches on the sides. The stove is 39" high, 20" wide and 18" deep and weighs 242 lb. In October 2004, the Gabo cost $3,500.
