    Pretty good stove for the price. Glass panels on the doors come loose occasionally and need to be adjusted. The method of attaching them to the doors could be improved. Stove purchased in
    2009 and the grate has disintegrated already with moderate use. Seems to be made of inferior quality metal. Can send you a picture of it by e-mail if you want to show it with the review.

    Stove expert replied: Try leaving a bed of ash to protect the grate and make sure the ash is removed regularly as this will also shorten the grates life!

  • are they that bad?? answer NO!!

    Michael Joseph 10 years ago

    i have got to say, these stoves are not that bad for the money, the build and look are ok, and the heat output seems fine.if you want a value for money stove then this fits perfectly, at the
    end of the day does it heat the room? answer yes!!a lot of reviews are quite negative, but i think these stoves are ok, over night burns are down to the operator, practice makes perfect..i have fitted a few of these stoves, and the feedback i get is quite positive.i still go to the installs and maintain them, the oldest one being a country kiln 17 3 years since first installed and still going well.value for money, 4 stars.Heat Expert Replies: Good all rounder.

  • Very good stove for that price!

    Pierre 11 years ago

    At first I wasn't sure I was doing the right thing. For the price of this stove I thought it would be made out of cardboard or something. Wow I was amazed! This stove looks great, much much
    better then the pictures at the Country Kiln's website. And boy was it heavy, we had to be three people to carry it from one room to its final place in the house. I think the build and finishing are a little bit rough but it does give out a lot of heat. To my surprise I also found out that it had a riddling gate which for some odd reason was not mentioned in the website, nice surprise. An additional feature it has is a lever at the bottom which when opened supplies additional air to the back of the stove. Overall I think it is a very nice and functional stove and looking at the price, definitely worth it. Thumbs up for this stove!
