Review of Jotul F 100
Surprisingly bad for Jotul
I have been in love with Jotul stoves since the end of the 70s, we had a 118 and a 121which we still have, as well as the N1 and they are perfect. I Bought the F100 and have had to move it around the house quite a bit, to get it to work properly.It seems to need a long and I mean long flue and the lower air intake is very small for lighting up. It also seems to take for ever to get warm. I have a Morso squirrel which I bought reluctantly after my experience with the F100,but have been pleasantly surprised by it. I strongly recommend the Squirrel as a small stove purchase, it is far superior than the F100
Stove expert replied: What a shame that the latest Jotul has not lived up to the previous models. Having had a few to compare it with and years of experience the F100 seems to fail to perform as expected even when moving to a longer flue. The flue draw will be imperative to get right especially with other working flues in the property.
