Review of Aztec dowling stove

Over 25 yrs

Paul B 6 years ago

Had our Aztec over 25 yrs still burning well after other stoves we have had are long since dead.

Gives instant heat, burns well even with the door open, and we take out the ashes every few weeks. Ours is so old it doesn't have glass in the door and it is one of the first experiments with a back boiler. It consists of a U shaped stainless pipe inside the box but it never worked successfully.

I imagine they have come on since then.
