Highly recommended Stove - but instruction could be better

Stephen Austin 8 years ago

Would highly recommend these stoves but the explanation and instruction about how to use the Airwash, when and what affect it has on the burn rate would not go a miss. None was given in the literature that came with my stove. Could the "stove Expert" give an explanation below? useful to know the following.\n\nWith Airwash open and air supply turned down presumable this gets maximum heat from the burn but does not increase the rate of burn? or does using the air wash increase the rate of burn? \n\n

Stove expert replied: The airwash is mainly to keep the glass clean but allowing more air into the stove will allow it to burn at a slightly higher rate. The primary air is the main control for this.
