Review of Firebelly FB stove

Firebelly 4KW logburning stove

Mike 15 years ago

This small stove is mostly very good, but the standard and durability of the finish is poor in that it marks very easily indeed. Operationally very good but our installation was very very poor, in fact, still unfinished. Value for money is difficult to score, but whilst the finish is poor and hardly worthy of the name, the fire is robust and a very useable product which is easy on the eye. Not too many "smaller" stoves available so its a shame that Firebelly compromise their product with this external finish.
