Dovre 700 stove
Please note that the dimensions for the Dovre 700 multi fuel stove are not the same as the wood burning model.
The wood burning version, the Dovre 700CBW stove, can be used in a smokeless area.
The Dovre 700 is a good quality cast iron stove with a single door. There is one large window in the door.

well-built, solid (175kg!) stove that gives good heat and looks well in the right setting. We are very happy with it.

- the door hinges sometimes work their way up and have to be banged back down before the door falls off, but that hasn't happened for two years now. Maybe it was just stiff from being new. Amazingly easy to light - it never fails and takes no effort or complicated rituals - one firelighter and a few thin branches, and you're off. Totally uncomplicated to use, whatever you put in always catches. Mine has kept going for over 18 hours at a stretch from one (substantial) load, lighting the new load from the embers of the previous one. In fact, over winter, I hardly ever need to "light" the fire. The firebox is a good size, admitting logs 50 cm long (something I appreciate, because I cut my own wood - a bigger firebox means less chopping). It's straightforward to crank up the heat or damp it down - however, when closed down as far as it will go and still operate, the airwash isn't as effective. Handle operation is fine.Mine heats a house 160 square metres big, on two floors, if I leave all the doors open. Even in deepest winter (temperatures can fall to -20°C where I live).I don't suppose I'll ever need to buy another one, as these are built to last, and I don't intend to move. But my brother bought one on the strength of a winter visit here, and is equally pleased with his.I cleaned the chimney for the first time this year (easy procedure, and no mess), and all that came down was half a plastic carrier bag of soot, so their cleaner combustion claims would seem to be founded.

Stove expert replied: Sounds like the heart of the home.
convective air-flow to be created, drawing cool air up from the floor, heating it between the firebox and then blowing out the top of the panels - what a fantastic design!
Stove expert replied: What a great review, nothing that doesn't please!
door and N.B. the side opener only exists on the multifuel version. Can be a bit confusing on the Dovre website. Apart from that the stove seems to be pretty well made and is easy to light and operate. Both cleanburn and airwash work well. So, if you live in a smoke control area and want a big stove there is not much to choose from and you could choose worse a stove. If you can live with the design you've got a well made stove for the money.
