Dovre 2700 stove

The Dovre 2700 is the bigger of the 2 wood burning models in this series.

Like the other Dovre stoves the body is made of cast iron and the canopy is made of steel.

The 2 doors on the Dovre 2700 can be folded back to the sides of the stove forming a big fireplace opening -

thus designed to run with the doors open or shut.

  • Great for what it is.

    Jason Spencer 6 years ago

    We bought this to fit an a large inglenook. First off, it looks great, very grand. We''ve got the base for it and spaced about 200mm away from the wall behind. It''ll take an easy 10kg
    of coal without overloading. Due to its size and thickness of the steal it takes a while to warm up but once going seems easy to control to reduce the heat down. Its party piece is having the doors open, which hardly any other stove is designed to do, like this it gives out massive heat. It can burn a lot of wood/coal but it is a 10kw+ burner, so of course it''ll use more than a 5kw stove.

    Stove expert replied: The Dovre 2700 stove is a wood burning model only and coal should not be used on it. The 2000 and 1800 models are multifuel though.

    A nice looking stove, but if you buy it with the plinth and hood kit i.e. when it looks great. Then it does not heat well. The convector is largely covered and it fails to provide the heat it
    should.I modified the base plinth with a hole cutter. I cut 25mm dia holes and lots of then to give 300cm2 of open space for air to flow around the convector. Now it works fine and gives off lots of heat.But if you did not do this it will be a dissapointment.

    Stove expert replied: Do not undertake any modification to a stove unless you are prepared to invalidate the warranty. It seems in this case the change has made a big difference.

  • Not impressed

    Chris Ankcorn 10 years ago

    I have owned one of these for some years, fitted with a back boiler to heat domestic hot water. The glass lining of this eventually failed, leading to dirty, rusty hot water. Dovre simply informed
    me that despite still making the stove, they couldn't supply me with a replacement boiler. I had to get one made for me out of stainless steel - fortunately I have friends in the steel industry - and I think my replacement is likely to be better than the original. The chimney damper also broke, this is a poor design which cannot be operated with the doors closed. The bakelite door handle soon broke and replacement price was exorbitant, I fitted a better one myself which doesn't get so hot.The stove does produce a LOT of ash, which implies inefficiency, and again due to poor design this falls all over the front and needs constant cleaning up. There is a riddle with an ash tray underneath, but again this is a poor design and often jams. Even with the doors closed and properly regulated it uses a lot of wood, although it does throw out the heat if you load it up - but then it's difficult to calm it down. If I didn't own a lot of woodland I would have changed it a long time ago to cut my losses. With the doors open it does look the business though, and it does supply all our domestic hot water in the winter, and it does heat the house.

    Stove expert replied: You do not state how long you have had this stove and the glass lining on the boiler failure is disappointing. Good to hear that it does genersate the heat required though.

    Purchased this stove to heat a good sized room. Disappointing from the day it was installed. Phoned so many times to the manufactures for advice etc who told me it was the wood, I wasn't lighting
    it right, then suggested I extend the flue to by pass the ridge for better draw etc. Nope, its the stove it does not produce the heat = my advice would be don't buy it get a Clear view brilliant can't fault it.

  • A compromised stove

    Julian Rodway 14 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.

    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.

  • Looks great

    Lara Roberts 15 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.

    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.
