Great little stove that looks much more expensive than others around the same price. Very easy to light as it draws very strongly since I had the chimney lined and insulated at the same time as installation last year.

Because of the airwash system and not being able to close down the secondary air control combined with the efficiency of my chimney I am not able to easily control my fire. I have only used well seasoned wood so far and hope that burning solid fuel may be a solution.

Stove expert replied: You may also need to get a flue damper or stabilizer if the flue draw is excessive. This will give better control and prevent damage to the stove.
