Review of Fondis Stella Stoves

I love my stove

Portia Kamons one year ago

Ten years ago I renovated a derelict house in North London (it had been empty for years and still had an outdoor toilet, that's how derelict). The first image that came to my mind when we entered the property - despite the decay and mess - was a double sided fireplace between the front room and small under stair space that would become my office. I was so happy when I found the Fondis Stella inset stove. It's beautiful, the design is smart and effective, and I love it. We use it throughout the winter and after 10 years of regular use it's in perfect condition. I recommend it unconditionally. (I should add, I didn't know what the questions about the firebox and airwash were referring to, and I couldn't leave them blank, so I entered a value of 3,)
