Review of Bergen stove

Amazingly warm and beautiful to watch

James Williams 2 years ago

We have had our Bergen for just over a year now and find it absolutely fantastic. Lighting is easy, ( I use one natural lighting product, about 12 bits of kindling and two logs), the Bergen then takes about ten minutes to reach a temperature hot enough to start the stove fan. It then runs on remarkably little wood and can be banked up to stay in overnight if needed. The fire picture is stunning. It does require either well seasoned or kiln dried logs to ensure an easy life but a little organization is necessary with any wood burner - not so?
