    I must agree with Mr Jenkins on his review. I too have the Merlin standard and the throat plate (baffle) has again failed for the second time!! Replaced after the second year and gone again... []

    Stove expert replied: The failed parts are being replaced with modern better constructed materials that will reflect the same stove that is currently sold by Merlin so the customer is now happy with this product.

    This is a good stove, the self clean is very good. The stove has been in use for 3 winters now using only well seasoned hardwood. Sadly the back throat failed in year 2 and was replaced. Even... []

    Stove expert replied: Internal components such as baffle / throat plates, side bricks and rope seals are subjected to varying degrees of heat depending on how the stove is operated and classed as consumable items. It is a shame that you have had to replace the throat plate twice, it may be that you are overdrawing it and perhaps should operate it on a sightly lower setting - a stove thermometer will help you with the ideal temperature it should be operated at.
