easily and throws out huge amounts of heat. We burn mainly wood on it as my job means I have good access to plenty of it but we have tried smokeless fuel and it worked just as well. I would definitely recommend this stove.

I expect more output than I get.
Stove expert replied: Having a stove set into a fireplace can restrict air flow, might be worth investing in a stove fan that is driven but heat generated as this would move the heat into the room.

flow system has kept the glass on both doors as clean today as they were the day the stove was installed. I only have to wipe the glass over with a bit of screwed up newspaper to give the glass a brilliantly clear finish. I ensure that the chimney is swept every autumn (I tend not to light it in the summer months) and I have the stove serviced at the same time. I've just had to have the fire bricks replaced but, after 8 years, I don't think that's bad! The only criticism I have is that the door knobs do get rather hot when the stove has been lit for a while but that's easily addressed by using the "riddle handle" to help.
grate we opted for the 4. It is Easy to light and keeps going easily and is managed by using the riddle grate options and air inlet systems. the airwash is adequate although I'm a bit of a cleaning freak so have cleaned the glass between fires.This stove puts out a lot of heat quickly using quality fuel; I think this is the key to happy fire building. Overall very happy with the Hunter 4.
down. I had a flue damper fitted to slow the airflow but with little success. Ropes have been replaced a number of times but with no improvement. The small gap between the doors is part of the design and I can't see a way around it unless a single door can be fitted to the double door version.
from the kindly installer sorted the job. We have a Jotul in the lounge and expected the same preformence. The simple solution was to burn solid fuel. Light a match and stand back for a minute. It roars away, throw on a log then a shovel of coal. After closing everything down it smoulders all day keeping the kitchen pleasantly warm without a refill. To overcome the intial problems we had a rear baffle fitted to the flu which along with the other 2 vent controls allows ultimate control. The airwash works just fine. It's not the prettiest of stoves and the small fire box makes loading difficult with pieces of coal falling back out. The door handle is not the easiest to operate and gets hot. Glowing embers are still there in the morning if you want to put kindling straight on. So, overall if you are looking for a small efficient multifuel stove which is not particularly good looking you will not be dissappointed

DO NOT BUY!
Stove expert replied: The flue should be fixed, this needs to be attended to immediately. The stove will not be controllable if it is not installed correctly, urgent action required. Conflicting information when you say good finish but then air wash fiddly, fire bricks extremely fragile, bottom vents are loose fiddly etc
Stove expert replied: Always go back to where you purchased from as a starting point they should be able to help with any problems you are experiencing.
