Review of Hwam Vivaldi stove

Eight Years In

Michael Underwood 7 years ago

The Vivaldi has given eight years of trouble free service and produces a heat output exceeding expectations. Like all wood burners, this fire needs a degree of management, but in really cold weather I keep the Vivaldi going for days on end with only the occasional ash removal.
