Defiant, Defiant Encore, & Encore.

The history of the Defiant. In 1975 the first model from Vermont Castings was produced, the Defiant I. There was a running change and the Defiant I went to a 2 piece fireback and became the model Defiant IA.  In June of 1980 there was a change in the Defiant IA to the new model the Defiant II. The front of the stove on the new Defiant II wrapped around the sides for a better finish. In January of 1985 the Defiant III was introduced with the top loading hinged griddle. Production of the Defiant III was completed in 1988. In 1986 the smaller Defiant Encore was introduced, model 0028. In 1990 the Defiant Encore was updated to the new model 2140. In 1992 the stove was updated again to the new Defiant Encore 2190. In 1993 the stove was updated to the new model Encore 2550. The name Defiant was dropped from this model. In 2001 the larger  Defiant model 1910 was added to the lineup along side the Encore 2550. In 2002 the Defiant 1910 was up dated to the Defiant 1945. This new model has removealable legs and a reversible flue. In 2005 a new Non-catalytic Encore model 1450 was added to the lineup. In 2005 a new Non-catalytic Defiant 1610 was added to the line up.
