Review of Klover Smart 120 wood pellet cooker

Klover 120 traditional wood pellet stove

Judy Perry 3 years ago

We selected this stove to replace a very thirsty oil-fired Aga which we used for heating hot water and cooking. The Klover is very versatile operating from a standard central heating thermostat controller which means it is on when we need it and not wasting resources. I am getting used to controlling the stove for both heating and cooking. A tip I have just learnt is that once all your radiators have heated up drop the work rate to 2 (from the normal 4) for the time you want to cook to maintain heat in the oven and cooking plate for the time that you want to cook. I still have a lot to learn but love the stove not just for itâ's appearance, space heating and cooking but that it is far more eco-friendly than the Aga. The other bonus of the Klover is that is eligible for RHI payments too! It also helped that we had very knowledgeable installers. I would certainly recommend a Klover 120 to anyone considering changing a less flexible system. To make the most of the eco-friendly element we installed the Klover alongside solar thermal panels which we have found work well together.

Stove expert replied: Great comments, any new cooking product will take a time of adjustment but well worth getting to know the product so you can get the most from it. They are beautifully engineered cooker / boilers.
