Review of Charnwood Island I stove

Pricey stove, poor output and cream finish disappointing

Jane Poretsis 5 years ago

Should have been delighted with the amount this cost, but it does not work as well as the other stove I have that was a Fireline, and 1/2 the price! I operate both with lots of clean dry well-seasoned wood and yet the Charnwood does not burn as well, nor give out as much heat. The cream paint discolours and has to be re-touched, all in all a lot of money for a mediocre stove.
