Review of James Smellie Crator Stove

Better than expected

Colin Meiklejohn 5 years ago

I looked at loads of woodburners before selecting the Crator and have been delighted with the quality and efficiency of this stove.

It may cost a bit more than some and a lot less than others with the same build quality.

Good to see a British company producing high quality products.
