How to cure your sauna stove from many ills

light steam graphic

Those of us who have built our own saunas have all been there. We have crossed off many of the tasks on our build list:

  • Paneling our hot room: check.
  • Hot room door installed: check.
  • Benches installed: check.
  • Chimney pipe installed: check!

As we approach the “Finnish” line of our sauna builds, it’s a good idea to allow an extra day or two to fully cure our sauna stoves, before we install them in our hot rooms.

How do we cure a sauna stove?

  1. Set our sauna stove outside.
  2. Light a fire in our stove.
  3. Let the paint smell dissipate outside.

A key point: Don’t go crazy with big fires. It’s a good idea to start a small fire and let that burn for an hour or so, let it die down, then build it up again. By gradually building up heat, theory goes, our stoves will cure better. The paint will not be stressed and will be allowed to “cure” to the steel.

A day or two of small, building fires, with a final megga burn outside before installing, will help ensure that our new sauna stoves will be cured of any ills (and yucky smell).

  1. One more tip, don’t do what I did:
    Paneling our hot room: check.
    Hot room door installed: check.
    Benches installed: check.
    Start stripping down in anticipation of firing up for first sauna: check.
    Wash the rocks: Doh!

    There’s nothing worse than anticipating your first round in your self-built sauna, just to have to stand over a washbasin and scrub some rocks first! 🙂

  2. Speaking of stoves, is there a contact to discuss ordering, like shipping, lead time, etc? This is for a local build in Mpls… thanks!

    For sure. I’ve done this many times. Just don’t be expecting to take a sauna as it cures. I made this mistake once and man, it sucked. Eyes burning and yucky breathing. Prop open the hot room door, and maybe get a fan circulating on low speed.

    No problem.

  4. I welded up my own stove for my sauna build. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and I’m very excited to get this thing rocking in the back yard. …I haven’t had much luck finding info on what I should do to keep the rust at bay. Any advice on painting a sauna stove? Not sure if it’s a good idea to put a stove into my healthy oasis that’s been rattle canned it with high temperature paint…

  5. Yea, I hear you Gabe. In this case Hi temp paint is the lesser of any evils. That’s what most/all commercial stove mfrs. use.
