    We bought two Owl's and had them installed in a sitting room and kid's play room a couple of years ago. Went for Morso as we had a Squirrel in another house that served us very well. I find... []

    Stove expert replied: I can't stress enough the importance of only burning dry wood with a moisture content of less that 20%. You should never burn wood straight from when it is cut. Advise changing this with immediate effect!

  • Good stove, shame about the paint fumes.

    Benn 4 years ago

    We bought this to replace an oversized Godin in our French house. The build is good and the controls are fine but as soon as the stove gets anything like hot, the paint emits sickly paint fumes... []

    Stove expert replied: Sounds more like an installation issue rather than a problem with the stove, get this checked thoroughly as these are good stoves and reliable. Perhaps it is more to do with the flue when hot!!

  • The Owl...

    John Clark 4 years ago

    We've had our Owl since winter 2006, and we are very pleased with it. It does what we need although in hindsight we should have purchased a lager stove given the volume and 'lossiness' of the... []

    Stove expert replied: Just as this Owl owner predicts the secondary air cannot be fully shut down. It is one of the reasons why it is a Defra Exempt stove. In fact forget trying to overnight burn in almost any Defra Exempt stove. On the plus side this stops inefficient burning which will tar up your chimney (increasing the risk of chimney fire) and producing lots of smoke. Perhaps it is time for us to consider removing the 'overnight burning' rating as it doesn't really apply to many stoves these days.

  • owl multi fuel

    Glenys Woodward 5 years ago

    We have been very happy with this multi burner, and have heated our home for a brief time when our central heating was broken. I am amazed anyone would have a problem burning it overnight. []

    Stove expert replied: Morso again comes up trumps, good well built stove that gives the heat expected.

    It works great with both logs and coal - or a combination of both. With wood the glass stays very clean, it can get sooted up a bit if you burn coal when the coal burns down (this may be to... []

    The Morso Owl is an efficient stove. It really throws out the heat and warms up the room well. The combustion seems to be very good. There's no smoke visible outside and a relatively small... []
