Review of Broseley eVolution 5 woodburning stove

Great stove but a couple of issues

Damian Findlow 3 years ago

Had this stove for about 4 years now. I do like it but as someone else stated the fire board inserts do crack and break on a regular basis. I have had 2 sets now. Also if you open the door to put another log on before the last one has burnt down to embers smoke will come into the room. Apart from that it looks good and is great quality and pumps out a lot of heat.

Stove expert replied: Refuelling should be undertaken when the majority of the wood has been burnt, opening when you have partially burnt wood does affect the efficiency.
