Review of Aarrow Ecoburn Plus 9 multifuel stove
Unsuitable Grate bars for multifuel use.
As the previous reviewer puts it the new bars on the plus range are wholly unsuited to burning smokeless fuel in that they are unable to riddle efficiently. I first tried to rectify this by using a hand held angle grinder to widen the gaps between the bars which had little effect. I then asked AArrow for advice re using an alternative bar to which I was told there was not another alternative. There is however the alternative of the bars from the previous range - Ecoburn and I had a few spares left over from an old Ecoburn 7 and bought some extras to complete the set -problem sorted.The stove now clears ash efficiently, is easy to light and burns overnight using smokeless fuels. I will mark the stove a 3 owing to the daft design of the + firebars and the fact that Aarrow do not offer an alternative at point of sale despite manufacturing such a bar. This company should know better with all their experience.
Stove expert replied: The new bars will operate effectively and remove the ash but as this customer is used to an older style product the comparison is a great change. If you know no different then the current bars work fine to remove the ash and yet provide a good base for not only wood byt smokeless fuels as required.
