Review of Hwam Ravel stove

wood or coal

Gary Rothwell 5 years ago

My Hwam ravel I burn coal mostly as its easy to light and burns great. I've done this for over a year and its been fine. I mostly leave the door open on it when it's lit properly. And I use vinegar on kitchen roll to clean the glass comes up like new and very easy to do. I do find it hard to regulate and don't even know if the thermostat works.

When I start it I just open the ash drawer and it lights up great.
