This is the first wood burning stove I have had after reading months of reviews. All my friends have wood burning stoves. None are as efficient as this one or give such a dazzling display. Had it over three years now and it''s hardly been off ! Even in the summer I have to see the flame even for an hour. The dogs love it. So good, three of our relatives now have this model. They buy kiln dried wood. I burn foraged and wood collected and dried from the sea. Honestly you cannot go wrong with this model. Build a small wigwam of kindling and once it''s caught get a log or two on. Glad I did the research. You can check for yourself on the reviews. Enjoy

Stove expert replied: Burning driftwood is not recommended due to dioxins being created in the flue gases when wood is burned in the presence of chlorides. Dioxin is termed as a persistent, bioaccumulating toxin meaning it doesn't decompose, it builds up in tissues of organisms that ingest it. It is recommended that this is no longer used as a fuel in your stove.
