Dovre 1800 stove

The Dovre 1800 is a wood burning stove in the 2000 series.

This is the smallest of the models.

There are 3 different canopies available for this model - small, medium and large.

There is an optional plinth.

The 2 doors on the Dovre 1800 stove can be folded back against the side of the stove -

so that the stove is designed to be able to run with the doors open or shut.

  • Very Disappointed so far with my Dovre 1800

    John Walker 3 years ago

    My logs are moisture checked and are between 9-12% which should be ideal. I did have an anti-downdraught cowl fitted during the installation but I have had this removed to try any increase the
    draw - sadly this doesn't appear to have had any affect. The stove looks great while the glass remains clear - but sadly this does not last long and I have a major glass cleaning task every morning. I am really wondering if I have made the right choice with this stove. Do any other owners have similar issues?

    Stove expert replied: Have you an air brick in th room? Do you leave the air sliders open all the time? What is your flue draw measurement? Section 4.3 in the manual is worth referring to, it is very descriptive and will insure you get the best from your stove when operating it.

  • Dovre 1800

    Lucy D'Arcy 9 years ago

    Perfect for an inglenook and offers an excellent compromise between a stove and an open fire. Open the doors and fold them back, and enjoy the open fire, whereas close the doors and close the vents and it operates like a traditional stove (with a few minor caveats). We've had ours for 3 years and not had any problems at all. It heats a 6m x 4m room (old cottage, solid walls, no insulation) with no effort. We use coal and/or wood and it works equally well with either/both. Easy to light and control. Aesthetically it is amongst the best. A great buy for those looking for the best of both worlds. Given our experience of Dovre, we are about to commit to installing a second Dovre (500 model) in our other fireplace. Stove Expert: Nice feedback from customer, stove working well.

  • An excellent stove

    ANTON PROLE 4 years ago

    We bought our stove 4 years ago and have been delighted with it. We did not have a fireplace or chimney in the room, so we fitted the stove in a corner of our lounge and it looks great. The
    added advantage for us is the way the doors fold right back giving it a more open fire look. It is also easy to light.

    Stove expert replied: There is nothing like having a stove in a room to make it feel homely and this can be achieved in most settings even when no fireplace is in place.

  • Best of both worlds

    Sarah Ward 6 years ago

    great stove - gives you best of both worolds, love having the doors open and folded back to enjoy an open fire or with doors closed for more efficient burn - we bought it as our inglenook was
    too smoky with open fire and this sorted that straight away.

    It doesn't have airwash and i've never kept it in overnight.It is very efficient and warms our room up quickly(5mx5m). Burns slower with doors open
