  • Baffle is not robust enough

    Peter Hinde 8 years ago

    Had my stove for about 4 years and in general very happy, but not happy with the state of the baffle which has sagged heavily and burnt away so that the flames go directly vertically and directly... []

    Stove expert replied: Get the flue checked if the baffle is failing quickly, it may be due to an over-drawing flue system which can be rectified if causing a problem.

  • Expectations well met

    Frances Phasey 8 years ago

    This is the third stove we have owned so we had a good idea of what we wanted. We took the view that, considering also the installation and long-term running costs, the initial purchase price... []

    Stove expert replied: These stove fans move the heat to give a balanced room temperature, they are quite expensive but worth the investment.

    Stove expert replied: Installation costs can be high compared to the stove cost but it will make all the difference to its performance so in the long term worth the initial outlay.

  • Outstanding

    Paul Westcar 8 years ago

    This is quite simply the best you can buy in my opinion, but it is very expensive. I have owned mine for 18 years & it still works extremely well. I have just had to replace the firebricks &... []

    Stove expert replied: Not a bad price for a spare baffle after 18 years of use, can't be bad!

    John Henderson 8 years ago

    I had just bought this stove and it is rubbish, the heat is pants, the price is to much, it cant burn over night, the fire box is tiny but for the stove size its size is good, the handle gets... []

  • A real house warmer

    This stove is good for a large room or, if you have a small cottage leave the room doors open and it will do the whole house. It is simple, robust and very well engineered. I've had mine for... []

  • 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... []

    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.
