Review of James Smellie Crator Stove

Anything greater than Crater?

Bernard LANGFORD 7 years ago

Having built ourselves a new home this year we could not resist incorporating an inglenook and wood-burner into the design. We spent many hours viewing a number of different branded ones on the market e.g. Esse, Aga, Clearview etc. but we found the Smellie Crator Multi-Fuel stove suited our needs best.

It is a good looking, robust stove and the heat output is superb. We are very pleased with the decision that we made and our bank balance is also in a more healthy state having chosen the James Smellie option.
