Review of Aarrow Ecoburn plus 7 multifuel stove

A bad mistake

Gordon Oldham 4 years ago

I bought an Eco burn 7 in November 2014 to replace a Franco Belge stove that runs for at least 6 months a year and has done for 26 years it has been moved elsewhere in the house where it would not get as much use. After a awful lot of research and assurance I bought an Eco burn 7, what a mistake. It will not stay in all night even with large dry hard wood logs. It is very dusty and the ashes always fall through and will not hold the heat . I am replacing it this week with another Franco Belge stove made of all cast iron construction which has cost about the same price.
