Review of Classic Harmony 1 multifuel stove

Classic 1 Harmony + backboiler

Peter Roberts 10 years ago

This stove is excellent in almost all respects. Its been installed since Xmas 08 It burns the fuel really well with very little ash and the airwash is good as long as you keep a bright fire in the box. overnighting is possible with a mix of wood and non wood fuel but closing down the air to make the fuel last all night means the glass needs a clean in the AM. The back boiler is moderately efficient with a good fire in the stove and as we use it to pre heat water befor it goes to the HW Tank It helps to save immersion costs. The only downside to this stove is the TEMP. of the handle when a good fire has been burning for a while. It gets HOT! A glove is supplied but everybody MUST know to use it. I'm sure this problem could be designed out. Otherwise an excellent stove, well made with nice appearance, not the usual utilitarian look of many of its competitors. Recomemnded.
