Review of Aarrow Ecoburn 7 stove

Just the Stove we needed

Alan Massey 8 years ago

Purchased an Aarrow Ecoburn 7KW mutifuel stove 6 months ago for our rebuilt bungalow following extensive research of the market. This stove has exceeded our expectations, it is easy to light, burns hot, looks great, is very efficient with minimal emptying of ash. It certainly is helping to keep down our fuel bills.

We only burn dry seasoned logs in it. Having used it most days this past winter & spring, we have already burnt around two tonnes of logs in it to-date without any problem. I am a retired engineer, having worked in the biomass industry, I can only say how very pleased I am with the stove. The key is to insure the logs are dry. (below 20% moisture content)

My only negative comment is that you need a fire glove to touch the steel handle as this gets very hot!! (A composite material with low conduction would be better than steel)

However, this is a minor point. Well done Arada. British made too!!!
