Review of Hwam Mozart stove

Hwam Mozart

Gary Kemp 13 years ago

I've had the stove for 2 winters now and it has transformed a fairly large (cold) living room into a cosy place.

Heat output is good, it looks great and it's pretty easy to use. To light it I usually find that leaving the door slightly ajar for a while helps to keep a flame going until it is established. Not sure if that means it needs better ventilation when cold. The fire lining at the back cracked pretty quickly, which is not a problem functionally, but slightly annoying. Overall I'm delighted with it.
