    Thought I would share a short review of the 53, it''s basically a 51 or 52, but has a curved back and long covered legs to form a log store. I have several stoves in my Italian farm house. This
    one is in the now finished sitting room. It was bought second hand, but by the looks of it, it has seen little use. It is placed in the corner of the room. The flue goes up through the floor into the bedroom above then out high up through the bedroom wall. That way the bedroom above is heated by the flue pipe. It''s very cold in northern Italy! Anyway, the stove is truly amazing! It burns very well, I have burnt compressed sawdust logs, good heat almost no ash.. I had a weeping willow that had bad storm damage. Not great wood but free and it heated the room easily, still keeping the glass clean. I had some very old oak from the old roof stored. It burned with an amazing flame, seemed to last the night. It''s such a quality piece of kit, it never soots the glass up. Uses little wood while generating impressive heat, I can see this stove getting lots of use as it''s so controllable, it has a large fire box, can accommodate odd shaped logs with ease. I recommend it completely...

  • A very good and solid choice

    Pav M 6 years ago

    After weeks of reading reviews and ringing various stove seller's I picked the Contura 51L, same as the listed model but with short legs. I wanted a modern look and good view of the fire, having looked at the 51L in the flesh was the deal breaker for me, it looks even better than the brochures. The reviews I was getting from various established stove retailers was excellent and many of the owners and staff had the same stove in they own properties. I am very suspicious normally and try and ring around for unbiased advice. Overall this was an excellent choice. It's been running for around 3 weeks and the glass stays clear as long as you ring burn as per instructions and get the stove up to temperature. The heat is also tremendous for my large room and easily takes it up to 24/25c from around 17c. The stove is Swedish built and this can be seen with the quality.

  • Contura 51lL

    After lots of deliberation, we plumped for the Contura 51L. For us it's been brilliant in every way, it looks good, very easy to light, pumps out lots of heat and is easy to clean out. We have
    ours free standing in a large kitchen diner and we still open the doors into the rest of the house. Also has a nice glass window to view to fire. Would recommend it to anybody, thanks Contura!
