  • Jotul F100 SE (plain door) with MF Kit

    Wes Crutcher 5 years ago

    This stove is beautifully made but EXTREMELY heavy (almost 100kg!). Definitely a 2 person lifting job. This is of course due to the cast iron construction, which is great as it means there... []

  • A Great Log Burner

    James Burns 6 years ago

    The cast iron construction makes it solid and robust. Its heavy as hell, but because its cast iron they have been able to give it some ornate beauty with the decorative design on its sides and... []

    After some research we went for the F100 mainly on appearance and build. This was 5 years ago. Overall we are pleased with the stove. Lights easily and produces enough heat to satisfy a lounge... []

  • Worst. Stove. Ever.

    Michele Sullivan 7 years ago

    I am EXTREMELY UNHAPPY with my new F100 wood stove. I bought it without reading reviews because I had heard nothing but good things about this company-and now I wish I had bought ANYTHING other... []

    Stove expert replied: Smoke coming back into the room needs to be investigated further as the draw is obviously too poor to lift the gases away from the stove. Contact a flue specialist to rectify this and you may find the perfomance improves.

    JamesTheSweep 7 years ago

    I have owned Both a Jotul F100 (wood only) and a Jotul F100 multi fuel - all buyers of the mutli fuel version should be made aware that to empty the ash pan the grate has to be lifted in order... []

    Stove expert replied: Good feedback, if you need to use an ashpan though a little diappointing to have to take the stove apart to do so.

    Stove expert replied: Any new stove will give off fumes on the first few firings but this should diminish once the paint has cured. Good ventilation is a must during this time.

  • Lovely little stove

    Ruth Winchester 8 years ago

    Like most people we spent a long time contemplating the various options before settling on this stove. We liked the way it looked and found it at a good price, but I was a bit worried by other... []

    Stove expert replied: It is strange that the bolts were not tight but an installer should check when installing a stove that all parts are as expected. Possible this was an oversight on the assembly line! Otherwise seems a good review but do not use wood with more than 20% moisture content to get the best out of your stove.
