  • Petit 5kw

    Carolyn Emery 5 years ago

    we've had the Cosyfire petit for just over two months and we love it! It was a great price at £400 we probably saved at least £200 against a similar burner. It looks really stylish, we
    bought the red enamel one (although its more burgundy) because we wanted a more modern burner that was in keeping with out 1960's house. It heats the room fantastically (probably takes about 30mins to really get going) it is easy to clean. Not a problem but I don't know if we are using it correctly, we do seem to be loading it every hour I don't know if that's about average. If the wood is too large it does not burn, too small and it burns very quickly we have not tried coal yet. I would recommend a burner they are warm, cosy and great for a cold winters evening, nothing compares.

    Stove expert replied: Providing you can shut the stove down to a slumber and it is not always a very busy flame then it would appear that you have control over the rate of burn and refuelling every hour is down to where the controls are set. If the stove will not shut down to a slumbering mode then the flue draw may be an issue and should be investigated further.

  • Great value and service.

    I have had one of these stoves for about 6 months now and it's been great from day one. Easy to control the draw and with the right wood you have to be careful not to let it get too hot, even
    with just one log, it works so well. Build quality and finish are good. You can touch the handle with bare hands under most conditions and the front and rear vents are easy to operate as is the griddle. I often cook casseroles on the top in a cast iron pot which works well. I have not managed to get the overnight burn to work when burning wood, perhaps I'm not doing it right. Also, if you let it get too hot (>250 degreesC on the flue temp gauge) it releases a smell. It did this for quite a few burns but seems to have stopped now. These are my only gripes. It's a very good value product and its just as effective and efficient as more expensive stoves and I think it is much better looking too. Very happy overall.
