Harman TL300

General Review:

The Harman TL300 is one of the few log burning models that Harman offers, but its overall a solid performer.  At $2600 retail its not much cheaper than many of its pellet burners but with some discounting and bargaining getting a price around $2000 shouldn’t be too difficult.  For houses under about 2200 sq. ft it’s a good bargain.


The top loading system is very convenient.  It will do 12 hour burn times without any issues; it holds a LOT of wood.  The afterburn system that Harman uses makes it very efficient, once it gets up to a good operating temperature.  It has a very well designed ashpan system.  The stove can be operated continuously while spent ashes will drop down into the large tray.  It makes cleanup quite easy.  The grill option makes for an easy home cooker. 


The temperature monitor placement is key.  Placing it near the flue does not seem to give an accurate reading, and can frequently lead to premature shutdowns.  You will probably need to get a probe-type monitor for best results.
The door gasket can tend to be loose when first installed.  Check the adhesion before using.  You should also check the door seal via the dollar bill test to ensure a tight seal.
It’s a big stove so getting to optimum efficiency can take a little while.

Final Thoughts:

While Harman is not known for their log burners the TL300 has a lot of nice features that can make it nearly as convenient as a pellet stove.
