Review of Dovre 2700 stove

Looks great

Lara Roberts 10 years ago

This is a lovely looking stove, and if you're looking for something that will look great but don't necessarily need the heat, then you'll love it. We live in an old thatched cottage with no central heating and needed the stove to throw out some serious heat. This never did so we have replaced it with a Clearview which has kept us toasty all through this colder than usual winter.\n\n

Stove expert replied: Yes the Dovre 2000 is a fireplace / stove hybrid and is probably not as efficient as a freestanding stove, especially not if burnt with the doors open. If you want serious heat like this person then perhaps consider an insert stove as you will still get the large window and opening, but will still have an efficient stove.
