Review of Hotpod Unlimited stove

You should get one!

Helen Elliott 6 years ago

The great experience starts with fantastic customer service from Hotpod. Dan and Phoebe are at the end of the phone even after you've bought it and have got loads of daft questions. This stove was described by the installer as 'the Rolls Royce of stoves''; he had never seen one before and said the build quality was the best he'd ever experienced. The whole family love this stove as we don't have central heating, only an Aga in the kitchen, and now the whole of downstairs is as warm as toast. It's easy to light and control and is multi-fuel; Homefire Ovals burn fantastically well and will keep it going overnight. Considering how small it is the 6.5kw output is extraordinary. The glass does get dirty if your wood is a bit damp but otherwise it keeps pretty clean. We used to have an electric heater which was like burning £20 notes so costs have fallen too which is an added bonus. The real beauty of this stove though is having a work of art in your sitting room which everyone will comment on as it is absolutely not like the normal 'box' stoves. There are not many of them out there so get one!

Stove expert replied: Good feedback of this unusual focal point, seems money well spent!
