Review of Aarrow Ecoburn 5 inset stove

Aarow 5 Inset

Trevor Bond 7 years ago

Brilliant stove for taking up a small space in the room and looking smart, lighting easily and producing a good heat. Installation is a tricky job as no connection is provided between the gather (that sits on top of the stove with a 5" outlet), and the liner connection - I had to have a part made up at the local forge. Also it is incredibly tight to fit the stove under the lintel and still have enough of a face over the stove to seal to. Once in place though it certainly does the job. Not as hot immediately as a free standing stove but once the chimney gets up to temperature it has plenty of heat capacity. Never managed to keep it in over night yet.
