Review of Aarrow Ecoburn 5 inset stove

Good but not Perfect

Nigel Wickenden 4 years ago

Bought an Aarrow Ecoburn Plus 5 Inset last month. Lovely looking stove with a nice large viewing window that pushes out a decent amount of heat.

Drawbacks:- The ash pan does not completely fill the orifice below the grate meaning that some ash has to be swept from it. And, the lip at the front of the ash collection area prevents the ash form being swept out easily. I believe these are two design flaws that can be easily rectified by removing the lip making it even easier to slide the better sized pan in and out.
