When we moved into our cottage late summer we bought the Jotul F100 for our sitting room Inglenook along with a Charnwood Country 4 stove for our study/snug. We particularly wanted to compare... [ read more ]
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... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Very informative review.
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... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Wood should not be stacked too close tpo a stove and ideally 450mm from it.
Lighting - I've used the bottom up method and my partner uses lighters mainly but I use paper and kindling with great success, leaving the door ajar until the kindling is burning. I will try... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Detailed feedback on usage and how to get the best out of this stove, good review.
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... [ read more ]

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.

On first operation of the stove I found it hard to light but that was down to my lack of experience,The stove released fumes from the enamel finish and required the windows opening,The manual... [ read more ]
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.
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... [ read more ]
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.
