    A sensational heater, no doubt. probably the heaviest you can get which means it';s meat to burn non-stop with no risk of buckled plates unlike maybe cheaper versions. It seems very efficient and doesn't use much wood. You can also cook on the flat top if desired I never need to use firelighters and it kindles very quickly. The heat output is tremendous and its wonderful to sit in front of the stove and watch the dancing flames; how great is that. ... []

    It is strongly built but oddly tacky.....the door wiggled when opens and shuts..too big a span for door.all the vent handles fell off in first few weeks ....but were replaced by Dru.It is ugly... []

    Stove expert replied: perhaps this stove owner had a particularly bad example of this stove as I have used it myself and, for example, it has a very large firebox indeed, seemed a very good finish to me, etc. Perhaps worth going back to the installer or supplier to sort the door wiggle out as well as the one I used had no wiggle.
