cracked completely from front to back. The manufacturer has stated there is no warrantee beause of when we bought it and we used it incorrectly. After repairing the crack in the base of the stove, it has since developed several new cracks on the top in only 3 months of use. We have also discovered that several of the joints leak. The quality of this stove is the worst I have seen in my life! A stove that has a life of less than 3 months is hardly a good value at any price!!!!!! PLEASE reconsider before you buy one of these stoves. It is better to spend a bit more and get one built with quality. I would be pleased to email photos of the crack to anyone interested in seeing them.

the plush finishing touches that some of the more expensive stoves might have. It has given me good value for money. I think it cost around £400 which is pretty good value. The handle operation is ok. What tends to happen is the pin that connects the inner catch to the external location socket often slips out which is quite frustrating. In terms of its performance, it is difficult to quantify as I have no other experience of other stoves, but i will say that it seems to work very well. I have recently fixed an stove thermometer to the flue, where it easily gets up to optimal operating temperature. The fire box is large - allowing for good foot long lengths of wood to be burned. The paint finish is ok. I can only say that it is chip resistant and has lasted fine so far. I have no issues with countability, with three vents above, and two below. It works best with the bottom ones closed and the top ones open. Finally, I would recommend this manufacturer. It was delivered on time without a problem. The courier was good and lifted it right up our front steps and into the house. I cannot comment on anything in regard to after sales as I have not needed this. As with any stove, it works best using good dry wood.I hope this has been useful.
Stove expert replied: Glad to hear a stove thermometer has been used, worth the investment to insure that the stove is used correctly.
