Review of Dovre 2000 stove

Dovre 2000 - great goats of gruff!

Neil Forster 10 years ago

We have had the 2000 since 2001 and apart from changing the door seals once and replacing the iron base once it has been a friend of the family. We have a 10 inch flue and find that it burns most efficient with the doors closed. The airwash doesn't work that well but the fire is controlable as long as your seals are all working well.\n\nI'd recommend it if you have a big room, otherwise it will force you to open your windows - it can get that hot!
