  • Changing doors

    I have a Dovre 2000 with solid doors. It gives good heating and is easy to use. But it is boring with the solid doors. Can they be exchenged with glass doors?

  • Good as an open fire - poor closed

    Mike Smyth 3 years ago

    This stove was bought to use open. It's just great that way - gives an estimated 12kW output burning 4kg soft dry wood per hour with the doors open. Closed - waste of time! Still burns up to... []

    DaveN 3 years ago

    Installed 8 years ago and reasonably satisfied. Main problem is that it only burns well over the riddling frame and leaves unburnt wood/fuel on either side. Never tried to keep in overnight... []

    Stove expert replied: Using a stove with the doors open does affect the efficiency of the stove, I use a poker to move the unburnt fuel to the middle, worth a try perhaps!!

  • Good alternative to an open fire.

    Les Briggs 4 years ago

    As with all open fires there is always a bit of mess involved but with the doors shut it is easy to do a quick clean up. We opted for the solid doors but it results in the fire being used open... []

  • Dovre 2000

    Kevin Twelvetrees 5 years ago

    The trouble with reviews,compared to what!.Most wood stoves are much better than an open fire or a missed calculatted inglenook.That means all owners will review with a high score.The Dovre... []

    Stove expert replied: this stove is for those who want an open fire but a bit more efficiency. As the reviewer says it is not as efficient as some freestanding stoves but that is not its function. The reviewer asks quite right what one compares a stove to? In this case I would suggest one would compare the stove to other inglenook stoves. There is in fact a baffle that comes with the stove but to operate you have to open the door so most people do not fit it! Here again I think perhaps it is the salesperson who let the consumer down - decent advice at the start might have stopped false expectations from this stove?

    Neil Forster 7 years ago

    We have had the 2000 since 2001 and apart from changing the door seals once and replacing the iron base once it has been a friend of the family. We have a 10 inch flue and find that it burns... []

  • Lovely to see those flickering flames!

    Siobhán Rogers 7 years ago

    We absolutely love our Dovre with its "billy goats gruff" scene on the back plate. Fantastic to have it wide open and appreciate it like a roaring fire; or to close it up so it burns more efficiently... []
