Review of Dovre 2510 double sided insert stove

Great stove but needs regular cleaning!!

C Winnicott 14 years ago

We have enjoyed this stove for 4 months and have received many compliments on the look. It has a good sized firebox so can take fairly large logs. Once it has been burning for a while it pumps out the heat. We haven't really used the fan as it is quite noisy. Also, the airwash system is fairly ineffective and the glass ideally needs cleaning every day - this can become a bit of a chore as you have to clean both sides. We have raised this with the manufacturers who claim this is not necessary if it is burned hot with well-seasoned logs. We have been doing this but the cleaning issue remains.\n
