Review of Ekol Crystal 5

What a scorcher

Colin Robertson 4 years ago

Just had this stove fitted in my fireplace, initial reaction was it is very small (ordered online)however once fitted it is just the perfect size for room.(5mx3m)

After following the break in procedure we started a normal fire the amount of heat this small cast iron stove pumps out is amazing, so much so it wasn't long before windows were opened and doors ajar.

Couldn't be more pleased with it.
