Dowling Hybrid stove

Like the other Dowling stoves this model is available in 3 models - a 6kw, 8kw and 10kw model.

 

These hand built steel stoves have a very particular look.

They are placed on a pedestal base and the wide window gives the view of the fire.

    Stove expert replied: What a fantastic review - thank you. Dowling should perhaps consider doing what other European stove manufacturers so which is to have a baffle which automatically opens when you open the stove door - problem solved.
