Review of Aarrow Ecoburn 7 stove

Good price but average stove

Gordon Shepherd 6 years ago

I had the previous model in another house a Benton 7 which I found had a better build quality after 4 months of use the glass was starting to deteriorate , I replaced the glass with one from an online company and it has lasted far longer also the handle is untouchable and has burnt people 2 or 3 times . Overall an average stove but not a patch on the previous model..

Stove expert replied: Glass will deteriorate if the stove is kept on a slow burn rate for prolonged periods and also if the stove is operated on the maximum burn rate for more that 30mins on a regular basis. Ideally the stove should have short periods of fast burn (max 20mins) 2 - 3 times daily.
