Review of Dru 78 stove

dru 78

Ursula Falconer 9 years ago

It is strongly built but oddly tacky.....the door wiggled when opens and shuts..too big a span for door.all the vent handles fell off in first few weeks ....but were replaced by Dru.It is ugly tho and \nI would much prefer a Morso Dove or big Clear view.Anyone want to swop????\n\n

Stove expert replied: perhaps this stove owner had a particularly bad example of this stove as I have used it myself and, for example, it has a very large firebox indeed, seemed a very good finish to me, etc. Perhaps worth going back to the installer or supplier to sort the door wiggle out as well as the one I used had no wiggle.
