Wood stove tool sets mainly differ from fireplace tool sets in size. These mini stove tool sets have shorter rods for better fit and control in small, shallow fireboxes of wood, pellet, or coal burning appliances. Some may prefer to also use them for tending petite, reduced depth fireplaces as mini fireplace tool sets.
List of Wood Stove Tools
Fireplace Poker - To position and move around fuel in the firebox.
Wood Stove Ash Shovel - To scoop up ashes and doubles as a dustpan. We recommend dumping all soot and cinders into a metal ash bucket for safety in case there’s still a live ember.
Fireplace Broom or Brush - To keep the area around the firebox clean and to sweep ashes into the shovel.
Ash Rake or Hoe - To separate hot cinders and embers from the ash.
How To Clean Wood Stove Tools
Regular cleaning during the winter months when the tools are in use will significantly increase their lifespan. Remove grim with a fine grade steel wool and some hot water or vegetable oil, massaging it gently over the surface. For tools with brass or copper, use appropriate solutions on the market, like Brasso. Or try a DIY potion of salt and vinegar or lemon juice.
