    What does it mean, if a sauna is "jatkuvalämmitteinen"?

    Sauna has this natural ability to heat itself without human's touch? How does it work?

    A once warmed stove (kertalämmitteinen kiuas) has larger amount of stones that are warmed up before the bathing. Continuously warmed stove (jatkuvalämmitteinen kiuas) has lower amount of stones that are heated during the bathing. All smoke saunas are once warmed.

    Even an electric stove needs a human touch to heat, someone has to switch it on, or set the timer to do that ;-)
