Review of James Smellie Crator Stove

Excellent British stove

Trevor Hart 7 years ago

I bought the Crator last March so this is my first real season. I really wanted a British Defra approved stove so I went for this one and I love it! I find it easy to light and control. The air wash works great and it gives off plenty of heat. I use wood and smokeless fuel, no problems with either. I would highly recommend this stove.
