Review of Firemaster 5 stove

Cast tec Newark Multi-fuel Stove

Barry Wilson 9 years ago

This is the first multi-fuel stove we have used, so it took us a little while to learn how to use it.

We are using both smoke-less fuel(Ovoids) and seasoned hardwood logs, and we are delighted with the performance.

It will "tick-over" all day on one load of Ovoids,and then in the evening, we open up the vents and throw on a couple of logs to give more flame.

The heat output is very impressive for a relatively small stove.

Stove expert replied: Multifuel stoves do give the option of burning smokeless fuels and wood to suit different needs depending on your requirements. If you are having to buy fuel it is worth pricing each to see which gives better value and performance.
