Review of Ekol Clarity 5 high

ekol stove

Very poor quality. I bought this and it really doesn't do the job that I expected. Its seems poor quality and the internal components are starting to buckle. I only use wood which burns at a lower temp and all in all I wish I'd spent a few quid more.


Stove expert replied: If there are parts that are buckling (depending on the age of the stove) it could be due to an overdrawing flue and this leads to the stove operating above the recommended temperature or operating on max for prolonged periods.
