cleaned every day, we started by using wood ash which worked well, now however we just use soapy water with a plastic (non scratch) pan scrub and the soot comes off very easily. It was easy to install - with the help of a strong man!!

poor lack of wind for updraft. I wonder whether lining stove back and side walls with bricks or similar will make it better. ? Is the space inside simply to large for effective heating or am I being too mean with the volume of wood I put on at any one time. Quite a pain having to open the doors to adjust the chimney baffle, poor design fault. Usually run it with the doors closed when going well to prevent smoke, sparks and fumes. Sometime open door when using coal and glowing well but have to open up the top venting baffle to reduce fumes. Any thoughts folks.
Stove expert replied: If the flue draw is poor then smoke coming back into the room is often likely when opening the doors for refuelling. You will need to put a decent amount of fuel on this appliance and it should give more heat when operated with the doors closed. The wood needs to be dry and seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20%. Have you an air vent in the room? If you line the stove, when it was not designed for there to be any, this would not help with the output.
would not be without it. If I were to have one very small criticism, it''s the ceramic knobs that seem to disintegrate and we've had to replace them twice so far and they are not cheap.
Stove expert replied: A good stove review and only having to replace two sets of knobs in 10 years proves the quality of the build. .
or dying embers - but with practice you can get it how you want it, just don''t leave it too long without checking on it! It can also be tricky sometimes to get the fire started. Providing there is *plenty* of kindling to warm the chimney up when you light it you can usually get a good strong fire first time. Also, as with a lot of stoves, make sure your wood is really dry before trying to burn it. I''ve just given it a spring clean, and the door glass has cleaned up like new. To be honest, you wouldn''t know how old it is! It''s installed in an inglenook so I would recommend the addition of the side panels as these give it a very "finished" appearance. It is a substantial stove that delivers huge amounts of heat.
Stove expert replied: Great length of service from this stove.
4kg per hour and heat output minimal - estimated 2 - 3kW. Instruction manual not very helpful - doesn't even mention some of the controls. Bottom line - great open fire alternative.
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!!
from skips. The back boiler warms the water and saves electricty.The room is 10m x 4m with an open stairway but it keep us warm.Would I buy another? Well I'll have a go at rebuilding this one first, it needs door seals and a crack fixing in the top casting. That done I'll see how long it lasts.It cost almost £900 25 years ago so that's 10p a day,I have done the door seals twice the damper has corroded but the stove still works just not as efficiently.As with all open fires there is always a bit of mess involved but with the doors shut it is easy to do a quick clean up. We opted for the solid doors but it results in the fire being used open (Psychologically warmer).There are more efficient stoves but it does its job and has stood the test of time. It is easy to guard and there is not a flat top for people to put things down on.
is not a high efficient stove.Its a compramise with an open fire.Looks great,but air leaks in round the air wash and you cant slow it down.Their is not a throat baffle so most of the heat goes up the flue(that has to be large because of the open door option).Its a great looking stove, but if you want a good stove that wont burn loads of fuel get a proper wood stove(not a Multifuel either).
Stove expert replied: this stove is for those who want an open fire but a bit more efficiency. As the reviewer says it is not as efficient as some freestanding stoves but that is not its function. The reviewer asks quite right what one compares a stove to? In this case I would suggest one would compare the stove to other inglenook stoves. There is in fact a baffle that comes with the stove but to operate you have to open the door so most people do not fit it! Here again I think perhaps it is the salesperson who let the consumer down - decent advice at the start might have stopped false expectations from this stove?
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.I'd recommend it if you have a big room, otherwise it will force you to open your windows - it can get that hot!
