  • Well built, good value burner

    Tony Jackson 3 years ago

    This is a well designed, solidly built Scandinavian stove. The burner box itself sits suspended in the shell of the outer case. As such it heats the room air by convection as it passes up through the stove shell. Consequently the rear, sides and top don't get that hot - 60-100C depending on how hard it's working, making it somewhat safer for kids to be around than a traditional simple metal box burner with 350C walls. The front, however, pumps out a lot of radiant heat and gets over 300C. Nice to sit in front of, but not quite so safe for children. In terms of fitting, the male flue outlet on the top is a euro standard, so an adapter will be required to use with UK flue pipes, adding an extra £25-35. If you are fitting 6" twin walled insulated pipe, the outside diameter is too large to fit through the circular hole in the top of the outer case to connect to the adapter, so a short length of vitreous pipe is required. It also operates with a relatively short flue, it doesn't need anywhere near the building regs 4.5m to draw 12Pa - so if you have a single story extension and don't want meters of flue pipe sticking up above the roof, it would be a good choice. The vermiculite bricks at the top of the burner are removable to provide access to the bottom of the flue for sweeping - no need for an unsightly access panel fitted to the flue itself. The stove is rated to not raise a hearth above 100C, so can sit on any 12mm hearth directly over wood flooring - no constructional hearth is required, it can go pretty much anywhere. One small grip we had was that because it's a convection stove, there are slots in the metal on the top and back for the air to flow through. If you place it in front of a white wall, from a standing height you can see down through the slots and to the wall behind. We found this unsightly, and opted to install a steel sheet sprayed stove black on the wall behind it, after which it looked really good. We heat quite a large area with it, and find the warm air penetrates adjoining rooms in a way that we never achieved with an open fire. For us it is perfectly balanced - on first heating a cold room, it is possible to have it going full blast, flat out, without it being uncomfortable to be near - whilst retaining a radiant zone from the hot front to take the chill out of fingers and toes. The heat is very controllable with the secondary air, and the airwash appears to work much better than some stoves I've seen which soot up when throttled right back. I would definitely buy it again.

  • Great stove

    J B 9 years ago

    This is my first stove and I am about 10 weeks into owning it. We ordered it on looks, we liked the industrial look of the stove but the price is very attractive too. The stove burns very well
    and is lit very quickly and easily. It is easily controlled using two sliding vents top and bottom. We have burned overnight but had too use a little coal, it would struggle with just wood. The airwash works quite well but it does need cleaning occasionally. Seems very solid and well constructed and I would buy one again. Aduro are Danish and so I found the instruction manual difficult but one can be downloaded from their website in English.Can't compare it to another stove, as I say its my first, and I can't comment on its durability, but first impressions from a couple of months down the line is that its a really good stove at a very competitive price.The room is fantastic with a real fire in it to, best thing I've done in a long time.J b

  • Asgard

    Rob Sykes 7 years ago

    I am sat next to my Asgard 1, and it's lovely !!! It might be cheap and cheerful ? But it works extremely well. I have fitted stoves from next to nothing up to £3000 , which work just the
    same!! (PS I am Hetas registered, but wasn't when I fitted my own stove)

  • One year of use and...

    J B 8 years ago

    This is an update to my first review as I've had the stove a year now. The Aduro has been completely reliable, no signs of wear or breakdown whatso ever, confirming first impressions of a very well constructed stove. Very controllable heat. It will only go over night with a coal type fuel not wood alone. The airwash is reasonable but expect to clean the glass every now and then, which is not really a problem. Overall very happy with stove, it is attractive, well built, HOT, and no problems!
