Review of Hwam Ravel stove

As as stove to go into a contemporary home this is beautiful and a piece of sculpture. We are in a city so the airwash system is important for complete fuel burning. We burn 2 year old seasoned wood kept dry with air circulation. The wood burns well but the novice burner must be patient as the controls are a little stiff and tricky to operate. When burning at the correct level the glass door remains clear but if it has to be cleaned then I have found that only wire wool will do the trick. I was concerned that there would be too much heat for a well insulated house but it is just right. Fuel raffle.
