Review of Morso Owl stove

Great stove

Alun Ap Rhisiart 14 years ago

It works great with both logs and coal - or a combination of both. With wood the glass stays very clean, it can get sooted up a bit if you burn coal when the coal burns down (this may be to do with the quality ouf our smokeless coal, though). It is nicely controllable, and it is safe to keep the logs near to it to dry - the stove really is a convector, heating up the room overall, not just the nearby bits.

It puts out plenty of heat, but we just open the door and let the excess go out into the hall to heat upstairs. In power cuts we heat saucepans on the top, too.

It gives the impression of easily lasting a lifetime. There are others we would certainly consider, such as Clearview, but we would have no hesitation about buying another of these.
