We wanted a contemporary stove for a very large hall, with an original fireplace in already, although this was alot more expensive than most we looked at, the quality is a cut above, very sturdy, ease of operation excellent. I got the multi-fuel addition, which is brilliant as I burn smokeless coal too which lasts for hours. The airwash system works very well. Large glass door so the fire is visible, looks great. Although burning logs is probably more eco sound, the smokeless coal is more efficient as far as burn time. Of course the different types of wood make a huge difference. I often pop a couple of logs on top of the coal so you get the best of both, long burn and flames...
