to see one in the Burning Question in Perth. The Jotul f105 was sitting alongside it and I soon lost interest in the Morso. Not that there’s anything wrong with the Morso, I think they make great stoves, but the f105 stood out because of the design and the excellent quality of finish.It looks like a Minion. It is a modern clean burn stove, which means it takes a little bit more skill in kindling, but I have been around stoves most of my life so it’s no problem. It is heavy despite its small size, which means it has more mass for retaining heat, which it does very well. The fire is easy to control and doesn’t burn erratically unlike some modern clean burns. With the large view of the fire it is a focal point and ideal for any living room. It won’t burn over night but then no other stoves do nowadays due to pollution laws. I recommend this of course. I think for this size and quality of stove, the other contenders would be the fore mentioned Morso, the F100 (more traditional look) and the Jotul 602. The firebox is large enough in terms of height and width.

smaller output models, ideally around the 4kW mark. We only want to burn wood, so excluded multi-fuel stoves, and the main purpose is to supplement central heating at the coldest times, or provide the main heating we want in the room we mostly use after work. Whilst we have used stoves in the past, this was the first time weâ€™ve installed one - this involved opening up an old fireplace to create a modest inglenook. The size of the stove was therefore very important, and so we wanted a wider rather than taller model, ideally not too deep, so the 105SL fitted the bill exactly and looks excellent in situ. Since we use it mainly in the evenings, it burns for about 4-5 hours, using 5-6 logs in that time. It is very easy to get going, one eco-firelighter on top of a couple of logs, kindling above and then, when the kindling has burned down sufficiently, another log on top to get things going properly. For a cast iron stove the heat output is felt surprisingly quickly, but also lasts nicely once the last wood has burned down. The single control makes life easy, but Iâ€™ve found that it canâ€™t be closed down lower than about a quarter without the fire almost stopping. The only other minor annoyance is that, despite using well seasoned dry logs, the glass will always â€˜mistâ€™ up slightly, requiring a once or twice clean. The ash build-up also needs cleaning out about every 4 firings, but thatâ€™s quite easy to do (the stove has a small ash pan). Overall we are really happy with the stoveâ€™s ease of use, heat output and aesthetic appeal. Our previously cool room (even with central heating blasting away) is now transformed into a lovely place to be and it seems that our gas bill is also reducing because the thermostat is kept at a much lower temperature.

really surprised how much heat it throws out for so little amount of firewood. It’s small but heavy and the cast iron stays hot for hours after the fire is out. At first sight I knew it was very well made, excellent quality, which is what you expect from a renowned company like Jotul. I had initially intended to purchase a Morsø 1442, but the Jotul was sitting next to it in the showroom and was more appealing, mainly due to the looks but also the handle operation and view of the fire. It’s easy to light and the embers stay in for long periods. I highly recommend the Jotul f105.
