    I have used this stove for 12 years. The Darby likes to be run hot. With good gaskets and a proper drafting chimney this stove is hard to beat. When run properly and with well seasoned wood... []

    Forgot to mention in my review the only improvement I made to this stove is I replaced the three glass panels in each door with 1600 degree F pyro-ceramic glass and removed the metal mesh.

    Stove expert replied: Before purchasing a replacement ensure that you get the heating system re-calculated so that you will not be disappointed, this stove may not be large enough for the system it is supplying. If you find that the room in which the boiler is installed does not get hot enough, consider having a radiator in there for back up, have a thermostatic radiator valve on it so that it will only work when required or if the temperature in the room is not high enough. It may be worth looking at the fuel used as they vary greatly and an alternative may be more effective in producing the necessary heat. Is the chimney lined? This can make a vast difference also.

    We have had this stove in three different houses and find it to be very comfortable to use and we love the look of it in our current 1877 home.

    We bought one of the first Darby's imported in the US--1982 I think--I was told we were getting the eleventh one sold here. It's a handsome stove and a joy to gather around. Our dogs have always... []
