Hotpod Unlimited stove

This is the Hotpod Unlimited stove - a iron stove, the original version of this stove was hand made in Cornwall and you can still see it's roots; the body still has the characteristic shape of a gas bottle from which its predecessor was made.

The Hotpod Unlimited stove is cast here in the UK and still hand assembled in Cornwall.

    I initially became aware of the hotpod limited edition that is made out of up-cycled VW car parts but opted for the unlimited edition instead because is is made of cast iron and is hence more
    thermally efficient. Dan, the creator of the hotpods, was extremely helpful and informative throughout the pre-sale process and the stove arrived exactly when promised in an exciting looking wooden crate. I had the hotpod professionally installed in a lined chimney on a slate hearth and it looks fantastic, attracting comments from all friends and family that visit. It is very easy to light using kindling and as a multi-fuel stove burns seasoned wood and coal, keeping our three-storey house warm at night without additional heating, probably reducing our overall energy consumption by about 30%. We have subsequently ordered the tongs and stand to complete the set (the poker and gloves come with the stove) and Dan continues to provide advice and assistance. Highly recommended.

  • LIFE IS TO SHORT FOR BORING STOVES

    John Mercer 9 years ago

    A great looking stove that has a good heat output and is easy to use. This is a modern clean burning stove and is designed to have a small amount of air going into the stove at all times so
    this is the reason I have rated it a 4 for burning overnight.It is very well made and has engineering pedigree. If you want a stove that makes you smile when you use it and makes friends talk about it when they see it get a HotPod.

    Stove expert replied: It certainly is a stove in a group of its own, a talking piece without a doubt!!

  • You should get one!

    Helen Elliott 8 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!

  • Brilliant!! Get one......

    Helen Elliott 8 years ago

    Love it - the installers had never seen one like it before and they loved it and took a picture for their website. We have no central heating here apart from an Aga and the Pod keeps us warm as toast. You can keep it going all night if you put anthracite or Homefire Ovals on at bedtime; you will still get a lie-in too. It is easy to control, beautifully made, good and solid. It is a like having a work of art in your sitting room and so much better looking than the usual 'box' style wood burner. It's easy to control the fire by using the primary and secondary air vents (which are themselves lovely to use as they are so well made) It's worth the money. When we get planning permission and do the refurb we will definitely get another for the new kitchen. Also excellent customer care should be mentioned - if you have any questions you can ring or email Dan and he will help you out, however long it takes.

    Stove expert replied: Great review, thank you.

  • A STOVE WITH STYLE AND FUNCTION

    Garry Milburn 9 years ago

    Had this stove installed for 3 months now and have been lighting it at every opportunity we get. It has awesome looks and as the previous reviewer said definitely a talking point. It is supplied with some gauntlets for loading and a hotrod poker which is perfect for cleaning the fire grate and just like the pod excellent quality. My only niggle is the door size but we knew about that before we bought it. It is an expensive stove but well worth every penny? It gets a 2 for overnight burning but I wouldn't let that put you off as it does state In the instructions that are available online that it isn't supposed to burn over night. (read them 3 times before it was installed). Overall would definitely recommend it. Bring on the winter.

    Stove expert replied: The design makes this a stunning centre piece.
