to be a functional stove rather than a decorative thing. It has been an excellent stove, does not coke up, burns and lights well and is easy to control. I had to replace the brace that holds the blanking plate in which failed probably due to use. This was £25 and took 10 mins with a socket set. I’ve also replaced the door ropes etc which you will need to do with any stove. In short we paid good money for a good stove, basically the VW of stoves. Will probably last years and years to come.

smokeless zone.The stove is stylish and substantial, looks brilliant in the room and belts out the heat!It is very easy to operate, the airflow is very controllable both from above and below, we have had no problem starting fires. Our installers told us it was the heaviest stove they had ever put in.Would definitely recommend it. Have rated 5 for burning overnight but we haven't used it for this yet, just unable to not score on this criteria.

the primary source of heating in our 24' thru lounge and 18' kitchen.Our Gas bills have been reduced by at least 95%!, Therefore paying for itself many times.Well done Dovre.
Stove expert replied: A great review and a stove that has fulfilled the customers needs and more.
Dovre 500 ticks all the boxes for us as we live in a large house (12 rooms) and we have another multifuel in 1 downstairs room and the Dovre in another. Between them they heat the whole house and slumber overnight so we only have to use the central heating for 1 hour in the morning to warm the house as we get up. The clean burn feature means we can burn just wood on the Dovre and this has resulted in a massive reduction in our fuel bills. We would recommend the Dovre 500 to anyone without hesitation if you want a stove that is easy to use, controllable and inexpensive to run.
Stove expert replied: I would not recommend slumber burning, especially if you live in a smoke control area. It creates much more smoke which is what the smoke control area designation is attempting to avoid. Other than that it is great that you have had such a great experience with your stove.
it generates so much heat it's well suited to taking the edge off the whole house. Because of this, we have hardly used the central heating and have cut our gas bill in half.We had the chimney lined with a metal liner by the local chimney sweep as the chimney isn't in the best of condition - he charged £200 for installing the liner, fitting a pot and cowl and basic tidying up of the chimney stack - this didn't include the price of the liner, pot or cowl.We bought the Dovre 500 specifically because we live in a smokeless zone and haven't been dissapointed with it at all. It's very controllable, gives out a great amount of heat and is solid and well made. We use most mornings and nights throughout winter (all day at weekends) and have to empty the ash about once a week. The glass stays clean for a few days and I tend to clean this with an old washing up pad (non-scratch type) and some glass cleaner spray.
overnight, if I get it right and it isn't a really windy night. It is also much more efficient than our last, cheaper stove that we had and much better build quality. The fire wash works well, although when I shut it right down overnight the glass often gets dirty, but from what I have seen of other stoves this is normal and the dovre is better then many others in this regard.I would recommend a dovre stove as a good purchases, although for me I would buy the 450 if I was making the purchases again. This is because we have the wood only model as that is all we burn, so the ash tray behind the lower door is not used, apart from at the end of the season to clean it right out. From what I have seen if I bought the 450 then I would have had a slightly larger fire box area. If you are buying multifuel then this is not relevant and the bottom door would be a great advantage.Dovre are not the cheapest of stoves, but I think it was worth the extra to get a reasonable quality stove.
fit small extension. Looks good, easy to control burning rate. Not seen many better than this.
superbly and looks great with the lattice door option. Once banked up and 'closed down' the fuel will smoulder overnight it and bursts into life once the lower vent is opened in the morning. Once a good bed of embers has been made, it is economic in use, costing around 1.2p per Kw/h. Try achieving that with electricity or gas!
