Dowling Hybrid stove
Like the other Dowling stoves this model is available in 3 models - a 6kw, 8kw and 10kw model.
These hand built steel stoves have a very particular look.
They are placed on a pedestal base and the wide window gives the view of the fire.

Stove expert replied: Have you tried more than one smokeless fuel on the stove, as they do vary in the amount of ash and clinker that they produce so it may be a simple case of changing the fuel type to get better results? Ash should not be allowed to build up in an ash pan, so once you have riddled the stove it is best to empty this straight away, an ash carrier is great for preventing ash billowing around the room.

Stove expert replied: What a fantastic review - thank you. Dowling should perhaps consider doing what other European stove manufacturers so which is to have a baffle which automatically opens when you open the stove door - problem solved.
