Review of Defiant 1610 woodburning stove

Fantastic Stove

4 years ago

Brilliant stove, not sure honestly how good the Cat converter is in operation, but it's a wonderful stove, brilliantly over engineered, weighs a ton with lovely touches that make operation easy (ash lid etc.)

Very easy to use, retains heat for ages and is easy to light and maintain, does get through a lot of wood but that's because its huge, I can now cut my logs twice the size, so save time sawing and splitting as well. This is one of those occasions where you do get what you pay for. Highly recommend if you have a big room to heat.
