  • Morso Dove

    Catherine Blades 2 years ago

    We had one fitted in May this year . It looks the part in our old cottage and we have been impressed now we've started lighting it - clear large window , which keeps clean if wood is well seasoned
    , and will stay in overnight with logs if needed . Very impressed, to the point of ordering another one for our new extension .

  • A Beautiful Stove

    Sam Buck 11 years ago

    I did a lot of research into buying this stove. I had a squirrel before but extended the house and needed the heating and hot water to work off the stove. After consulting a specialist and many
    friends I decided to take the plunge and spend a bit more money on buying the Dove (my only concern was that it might be too big, but I was told that it's better to buy one that's too big than too little, and he was completely right!). Overall I'm massively happy, it's a beautiful stove. If I've got one piece of advice to give to anyone it's to buy a clip-in back boiler and not a factory fitted one, as it makes a massive difference to the heat output of the stove.

  • Great stove

    4 years ago

    We bought a house and it came with a Morso¸ Dove 1630. Being new to multi-fuel stoves it took some practice. Now, it lights first time, with no fire-lighters nor kindling, just scrunched up
    newspaper. High heat output that heats a 6m x 6m living/diner, plus adjacent kitchen and reception hall. We use kiln-dried wood to start, then once up to heat (always use a stove thermometer!), we use briquettes. I keep some bags of smokeless fuel in for the depths of winter, when I want to keep some heat overnight. I also recommend a stove-top genuine Ecofan to distribute the heat around a room. I have noticed other locals, with large rooms use Morso¸ stoves, and rave about them. If you use the air-wash top vents correctly (just follow the down-loadable) manual, you will not get a sooted up glass. I have no idea how old the stove is - at least 12+ years, I think.

    for the price this stove does not work as well as i thought it would(air wash) the seals round the glass failed after only four months but the casting would appear to be bomb proof

  • Badger in a stable conversion

    Laurence Faux 12 years ago

    The Morso Badger is a well engineered and built unit. They know a thing or two about wood burning stoves do those Scandinavian and on the whole I'm very please with the way this fire looks and
    operates...however like any any fine tuned piece of equipment you need to know how to operate it correctly to get the most out of it. This is not a just a metal box with a chimney on top. The stove can be tricky to light: use dry fuel..period, don't overload it and get a good flame going as early as possible or I'll just sit there and sulk.This stove can be shut down for overnight burning with very little effort but make sure the fuel is partially burnt and dry to avoid resin/water deposits condensing on the flue over night (boy that does stink).

  • Great Stove

    Alex 12 years ago

    A fine fine stove.If you burn good dry wood the glass stays clean. It lights with the minimum of hassle.... and is up to temperature within half an hour.Stoke it up at 11pm, damp it down and
    go to bed.... at 9am the following morning, pop a log on and open the air vents and the whole thing bursts into life again.Our stove heats our whole house on an evening and remains warm until mid afternoon the next day. The only downside is it can consume a lot of wood which means you need access to a good supply.
