Review of Dunsley Highlander 3 stove

Great little stove

Dave Poulsom 9 years ago

I've had my stove for 11 years during which time I've burned just about every fuel on the market: wood, smokeless (man-made and anthracite) peat, coal and the home made 'newspaper bricks' It is the smallest stove Dunsley make so you need to be careful with log sizes, apart from that - no problems. If you're planning on burning smokeless I'd recommend the chrome steel bars from the off as the normal ones do burn through (as well as the firebricks). If I had to find fault, the window can get dirty, especially when closed down overnight but it is easy to clean with a damp tissue and some ash. This is a great little stove and I've no regrets about buying this model. Burn wood for economy (I've never bought wood) or briquettes for heat.
