  • Over 25 yrs

    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.

  • Dowling Aztec - Fantastic

    B Maggio 11 years ago

    This is a fantastic stove. It looks cool and interesting, and the functionality is second to none. It will take huge logs for a 6kw output stove and is very controllable and will stay in no
    problem overnight. The output is excellent. We have had our Aztec (no boiler) for many years and moved it when we moved house because we love it so much. It is robust in terms of build and finish and still looks as good as new. It requires very infrequent ash removal because of the clever design. There is no airwash so the window does get dirty but is easy to remove and clean. We like that you can also burn the stove open and can put a kettle on the top of ours.

  • Phenomenal bit of equipment!

    Jacqui Flack 7 years ago

    The Aztec has quite a big 'mouth', so it can be fed to fill with wood, then turned down for the night. In the morning, all it takes is the chimney opened up, and the flames start to dance after
    about five minutes. If it has burned low overnight, a few dry logs catch very quickly, and its away again. Have taken ash out once, so far, in three weeks - and that was only done because we let it go out when we were away for two days. Left about half an inch in, (wood burners need that to run well), and it lit on one fire lighter. The house still felt warm when we returned after our two days away. I reckon it wouldn't have to be emptied more than about once every 4 to 6 weeks.
