Review of Futurefire panoramic FX1 stove

Flaming 'grate'!!! (as in great!)

Dr Mark Wells 8 years ago

We had conducted a great deal of research before finally stumbling upon this particular fire quite by accident. We are so pleased that we did! The fire is all that it was promised to be and has fullfilled all our expectations. It seemed to tick every box for us but the final and ultimate test was to light it. Naturally we were thinking that some aspect of the fire would dis-appoint us as it all seemed to good to be true, but this was simply not the case and we absolutely love it! As do our friends and family when they call to visit us. We live in a relatively modern home so we opted to have the fire sprayed top to toe in Pewter, and it looks extremely futuristic and highly contemporary. The manufacturers have proved themselves to be true to their word with regard to the build date and the delivery date and have always been just a phone call away for any tips or advice post delivery. We are most definately very satisfied customers!
