The WiseWay Pellet Stove Story

In 1999, Gary Wisner had an idea to build a pellet stove that could be used anywhere he wanted. This would require this stove to be portable and electricity-free. Wisner, an experienced machine shop foreman and welder with an eye for architecture, was determined to bring this new idea to life. He got straight to work and soon had his first prototype. After years of research and development, he had finally accomplished what he had set out for — a pellet stove that uses gravity to feed its burn chamber rather than an electric auger. This stove could be used in his shop, packed up and brought to elk camp, rolled out on the deck or heat his home. It worked so well that neighbors, friends and family were soon asking him to build them one, too.

Wisner’s motivation was created by his drive to build something different and better. Ten years later, he’s still putting superior craftsmanship mixed with modern technology into each and every stove and has formed WiseWay Pellet Stoves, Inc. This new gravity-fed stove is now patented and he has made it available for anyone who desires to have one.
