Review of Morso 8140 stove

This a superb stove. It is our second stove, the other being a small Dovre. The torso is simpler with only one air vent adjuster and burns exceedingly reliably. Unlike our other stove, this one heats up very quickly, pumping out a lot of heat. Its size also means it can take odd shaped large logs with ease. I wouldn''t hesitate to recommend Morso to someone buying a new stove.

The airways window actually works. On rare occasions when tar builds up, perhaps due to accidentally selected an unseasoned log, you can see it burn off within minutes. Of course, airwash does not keep the glass shiny if that is what you want as a film of ash dust does appear. Should you wish, that wipes off using dry newspaper.
