Great stove, looks the part in our garden room. But fire box small if you leave the standard multifuel grate in. We took ours out to convert it to woodburner only - very simple, just blank the riddling lever hole off with a bolt. Gives much better size fire box. We find the air controls are very sensitive and there is a fine line between roaring away and smouldering, in which case the airwash doesn't work. But that could be due to our flue system not being quite right. But generally - really pleased.

Stove expert replied: A flue baffle might help to regulate the chimney draft here as it sounds like the draw is very strong on this chimney.
