  • Clarke Potbelly Stove

    John Roberts 9 months ago

    Very poor quality stove. The stove needs to be almost constantly fed with wood because the burn-rate cannot be controlled due to leaks.

    Stove expert replied: Check the flue draw as it may not be the stove at fault!

    A very cheap stove that, while it gives off quite a lot of heat, needs constant feeding. It claims to be multi-fuel, but burning anything other than wood - such as coal - risks the stove overheating... []

    Stove expert replied: As with many things you often get what you pay for when it comes to stoves. As long as you realise this when purchasing then the cheaper end of the market does of course have its place, just don't expect it to perform as well as a higher end model.
