    Been using this stove for 10 years now, never let me down yet, heats the whole flat, uses coal or briquettes if no wood and it burns both with no problems. All I can say to stove novices who... []

    Stove expert replied: Good review. It can take some time to find out how to operate a stove and what fuel will give the best results. Practice makes perfect and providing the conditions are suitable a stove should perform wellt.

  • Country kiln adorn

    one year ago

    I bought a small adorn multi fuel fire from country kiln a few years ago. It was not fitted straight away as the house was not ready for it to go in. Anyway I have been using it now for about... []

    Stove expert replied: Spares should be available for a given period after a product is supplied, I am unsure why you have found that this is not the case with this stove. The amount of heat produced will lesson as the internal components are now not intact or allowing for the correct burning conditions as would have been the case when the stove was new. Disappointing comments on a stove that is not very old..

  • Bad design

    Michael Leahy one year ago

    I have had my Country Kiln Adorne stove just over six years and I must say on the run up to buying it the staff were extremely helpful. The stove is adequate in heating performance but although... []

    Stove expert replied: Homefire Ovals are fine to use on a closed appliance, there are more than one Homefire products available and if it is the six sided nuggets that you have been using then these are for use on an open fire and should not be used in a closed appliance.

    Neil Fennel 4 years ago

    I picked one up from their workshop, (tried to carry it into the lounge- really a 2 man lift) had it and flue fitted by local builder and it has worked well, heating the lounge well and gradually... []

    Stove expert replied: Wood that has a moisture content of 20% or less should only be used to prevent problems in the flue system.

    Anthony Purcell 5 years ago

    I purchased an 8kw stove from Country Kiln 4 years ago and installed it myself. I'm from Ireland and it was cheaper to purchase in Scotland and ship here than buy here. I had a Stovax insert... []

    Stove expert replied: Good feedback but do not agree with comments on Chinese stoves warping, the ones I know of have not!! Try to leave the airwash open a little and this should help to keep the glass clean especially if the wood has a moisture content of less than 20%.

    We have had problems with our stove since it was purchased. Used occasionally and properly, we have had to replace the glass twice due to cracking when lit. On both occasions there was nothing... []

    Stove expert replied: It is a good idea to investigate in depth what you are buying to avoid disappointment. Glass will not be covered by a warranty nor will any liners, so please read the small print!
