Review of Huntington 30 Stovax stove

Great Stove

Ian McManus 2 years ago

We have our Green enamel Stovax 30 for so long I can''t remember when we bought it. During that time we have used it almost continually during the cold winter months. We have moved it several times from house to house and I have found that all of the problems we have had have been down to the fuel used or a dodgy chimney. All that is required to get this stove blasting heat out is to use a fair amount of kindling to give a good flame to encourage airflow. Once burning it is easy to control via the handles on the front and easy to riddle. I clean it after every use once it has finally cooled down which is at least 8 hours after shutting down. The enamel has chipped but that is due to use and having been moved several times. It''s a heavy beast and not easy to handle carefully. I have not experienced any failure of any parts. It was expensive (although I would say good value as it is a quality stove compared to others) but has been worth every penny. I would say I would buy one again, but I won''t need to as this one will last forever.

Stove expert replied: Great comments and good service from this stove.
