Review of Charnwood Cove 2 stove

Poorly designed stove

William Pedder 5 years ago

I find two main problems with this stove - and I have experience of others. Firstly, it spews ash all around. Ash gets down the side of the ash pan and falls out when you pull out the pan. It accumulates on the inside of the door ledges so that when you open the door the ash is distributed in front of the stove.

Secondly, the airwash over the glass is insufficient to keep the glass clean.

Stove expert replied: Are you using well seasoned wood as damp wood will blacken the glass with the most efficient air wash system.
