With a pebbled black finish and flames licking ceramic logs behind a large viewing window, the Toyostove combines a traditional look with technology. Like all of Toyotomi's direct vent heaters, this model can use K1 kerosene or ULSD (ultra low sulphur diesel).

Digital controls hidden in a front panel can be programmed for night-time setbacks and other temperatures in a 24-hour cycle. When the room temperature reaches four degrees above the a setting, the heater automatically shuts off, conserving fuel. When the room temperature drops again, the heater will turn itself back on. Should the heater detect a problem, such as a fan motor overheating or a fuel leak, the supply line will shut off automatically.

The heater requires a 3 vent hole through a wall, an external fuel supply tank, and household current to run fans and thermostats. Toyotomi also sells a panel that allows the stove to be vented out of a window.
