the system does get hot after a few hours of use however if you use a heat resistant glove this is not a problem. The second issue is the collection tray for the ash is slightly smaller than the width of the burner so when emptying the tray you end up with two lines of ash either side. Overall I am very impressed and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
Stove expert replied: Nice comments overall. As with most stoves a glove is recommended to be used for operating the door handle or sometimes the operating tool supplied is preferred, I personally find this more fiddly and a glove is generally much simpler which is why they are supplied with most stoves. Regarding the ash pan width, due to the pan opening and overall body construction, they do tend to be smaller in size than the fire bed width and yes it is annoying to leave ash behind, I have found a stove hoover ideal for this job. If the full width is not used in the stove for the grate system, then you get a dead space at the sides and ash collects there so compromises are made in the overall design to get the most effective use of both the firebox and ash collection system.

lever function and changing the ash tray is just as easy. The finish is solid and stylish with a decent sized window.A handy feature is the adjustable rear feet to provide stability on an uneven hearth.Can't fault it!!

the boxes. We have now had this stove for just less than 12 months. The stove has been fantastic, easy to light and use with just the one controller, the slider diverting the air feed depending on fuel type. We have only ever burnt logs , but have found that setting the stove to coal is great for lighting or boosting the burn as the air is fed from under the grate. The heat output is very good (as ever very dependant upon the type & water content of the wood) and takes about 30 minutes to get to temperature. We leave the room door open to heat the whole house which this easily does. If fitted again, I would go for an external air feed as we get some draught by the air being drawn into the room to feed the fire and assume this would reduce with an external feed?. The only issue we had initially has been with the throat plate becoming dislodged as it fits very tightly over a metal bracket welded to the rear of the stove- this required me to lever/ force it on and down with a screwdriver- otherwise every time a log was placed on the stove that touched the plate, it fell forward and blocked the flue. Removal of the throat plate for cleaning / sweeping is also challenging (you lever it off the bracket but impossible to actually flip it to the correct angle to fit through the door!) even with what looks like the whole of the inner panels removed . There is a rear support bracket for the grate which looks like it's welded in (but it's not and is quite difficult to get at) which also has to be removed, the close tolerances mean that the throat plate is a millimetre accurate fit- this last piece of information is not indicated in any instructions I could find and I had to contact the manufacturer in the end who we very helpful. A well made, good looking, British produced stove, easy to light, and produces plenty of heat when needed, which I would buy again
Stove expert replied: Great review, removal of internal parts can be difficult and dirty especially once the stove is in use, but a tight fit means the parts usually stay in place.
heat for a smallish cottage. The only flaws I can find are that the door handle does get hot and the airwash isn't as effective at low burn rates. But I understand that's true of most stoves. Would definitely buy one again.
Stove expert replied: Restricting the airwash will mean less air washing over the glass and hence it discolours.
restart the next morning by just chucking on a couple of logs and opening the air inlets. Lovin it!
going, I've not looked back. Friends always comment on its look, so for me it's a big thumbs up.
it is attractive. It is a pleasing and 'unfussy' design.
choice, and the Ecoburn 5 seemed to be the best option.Overall we've had no major problems - the stove gets a lot of use from holidaymakers, probably more so than in a normal domestic setting, as it has the novelty factor. Kit for holiday lets has to be robust!Guests don't seem to have any trouble lighting it, and we get appreciative comments from out winter vistors.When we stay, we notice it puts out a lot more heat for a lot less fuel than the open fire it replaced, but I guess that's true for most stoves.The only down sides are the small firebox - 8" max logs (but then we needed a small stove, so knew we'd have to put up with that), and we find that the the throat plate gets dislodged fairly easily when guests overfill the firebox, and guests can't work out how to re-position it correctly. This results in no airwash, and poorer burning.Will just stay in over night with a full load of logs, and a bit of kindling on the embers in the morning to get it going again, or more easily with some multi-fuel briquettes.One day we'll open up the inglenook and have something a bit bigger, but for now the Ecoburn 5 is great.
