Review of Dovre 2000 stove

Curates Egg

DaveN 11 years ago

Installed 8 years ago and reasonably satisfied. Main problem is that it only burns well over the riddling frame and leaves unburnt wood/fuel on either side. Never tried to keep in overnight as doubt if it would stay in. Airwash might just as well not be there as soots up too easily.

Would be nice to have a sparkguard to use when doors are open.

Stove expert replied: Using a stove with the doors open does affect the efficiency of the stove, I use a poker to move the unburnt fuel to the middle, worth a try perhaps!!
