Review of Dovre 425 stove

Dovre 425

Steven Lucas 12 years ago

I like the stove. Its plenty hot for the size. I have been using smokeless coal and wood together mostly and I find I have to clean the glass daily if I want a good view of the fire inside. I use Hob Brite which does work pretty well. I haven't tried to keep it in overnight many times as it is not necessary for me. I found it wanted quite a lot of fuel to keep it in. I think I could get better at it with practice. Overall I think the quality of the stove is very good.\n
