Review of Morso Owl stove

Great Stove

Richard Davies 12 years ago

I've had this stove for just over a month now, this stove replaced a Morso Squirrel. There was nothing wrong with the Squirrel apart from needing a larger output stove.

This stove is very easy to use, lighting is simple and once going easy to control. I primarily burn wood which burns efficiently and cleanly which is evident by the nice secondary burn you get hovering mid firebox. Once going which takes approx 30mins it really throws out heat, our sitting room is 6m X 6m and gets pretty toasty. After a month of regular use I have yet to empty the ashpan and its only half full.

The airwash works good if secondary air supply is open, less efficient at other settings.

I don't burn the stove overnight therefore can't really comment on this aspect.

This stove is a premium product however you normally get what you pay for.

Overall I'm very pleased with my owl quality product that does what it says on the tin. Would buy Morso again without hesitation.
