Review of Invicta Bradford stove

Attractive Large Stove

Matt 11 years ago

Attractive stove with a huge deep firebox- we bought the cream enamel one. We like the large squat styling. Also has two warming areas on the top.

Has wooden handle which can be used by hand regardless of stove temperature.

This is a french stove- the handle is on the right

Unfortunately no cleanburn.

So far the stove burns v fiercely, despite all the controls on minimum. We may need to fit a reducer...

Not used it overnight, hence 1 star there

Stove expert replied: If the stove is burning too fiercely it may be beneficial to have a damper or flue stabilizer added to the system to give you more control. Discuss with your installer who should be able to guide you. Fair comments on all aspects of this model.
