I guess if you have no issues this might be a good stove, but frankly as we have had plenty of issues we would not recommend this stove. Firstly no stove plate turned up with the stove, then when it did there was another part missing which when that arrived turned out to be wrong. Very poor service. Would not recommend....

Stove expert replied: Always do short periods of fast burn (15mins) at least twice a day to burn off residues that are produced during slow burning periods.

Stove expert replied: It can be difficult to get a happy medium when wanting to use a mixture of fuels. The secret is not to riddle too much as then unburnt fuel will not fall into the ashpan. A light riddle should be enough to allow the air to move through the fuel to keep the burning process alive. Wood needs and over draught whereas smokeless fuel requires an under draught, wood needs the bed of ash and the smokeless needs air through it to ensure the burning process can continue so hence mixing fuels can cause difficulties. Perhaps use wood more when you are around to refuel more frequently and then use the smokeless for the overnight burn if required when attending the stove is not possible.
