Review of Dovre 2700 stove

A compromised stove

Julian Rodway 11 years ago

If you want a fire place that you can safely leave this fire is fine but it is not an efficient wood burner. The heat out put is rated at 10kw I never achieved more than 3kw with the doors shut. With the doors open it does produce heat but it also has a capacious appetite. Mine is going back to the shop a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.\n\n

Stove expert replied: I think that in this case it sounds like the retailer should really have explained the type of stove which the 2700 stove is to this reviewer. This stove (and the others in the 2000 range) are a mix between an open fire and a stove. Open the doors and you have an open fire, close them and you have a more efficient stove. Yes if you want an efficient stove then go for something else. In this case I do think that it is not that 2700 is bad in any way - it is just that the reviewer was not told what to expect.
