Review of Franco Belge Monaco stove

Monaco stove

Lucian Hodkinson 5 years ago

I have had my Monaco stove for 2 years , although I believe it is 2010 model, defra approved as top air vent can not be shut all the way , the chimney is lined with 6m of 5" liner .

I only burn wood and have had no problems at all the stove has a lovely flame pattern and glass remains clear ,I am aware that some people have had problems so keeping fingers crossed .
