Review of Barbas Cuatro Tunnel stove

Double sided stove

Iain Logan 15 years ago

Double sided glass doors is a brilliant idea, looks great and you have a single stove providing a stove in two rooms (two for the price of one). The heat from the stove is not great but I didn't need a stove with a large heat output.\n\nA couple of criticisms:\n\n1 The ridling grate handle attachment has a poor connection and often comes detached.\n\n2 Because the UK size of concrete block is still based on imperial sizes, unlike the sizes of the stove, you end up having to either cut an awful lot of blocks or you have to have a slight recess surrounding the stove on one side. I went for the 50mm recess on one side and it looks fine.\n\nOverall, I'm delighted with this stove.\n\n
