Review of Morso Panther stove


Andrew Chadwick 11 years ago

Originally bought a Vermont Castings Aspen 2 and quite liked it but wanted more heat. Went to the Stoveyard in Cheshire who offered great unbiased advice. I ended up with the Morse Panther and I love it. The only issue I have with the stove is that if you damp it down all the way overnight the glass gets covered with creosote which is a pain to remove (can be achieved with a glass scraper easily enough).

I would recommend this stove as it's simplicity personified and just works!

Stove expert replied: If you shut the air controls for over night burning then the glass will blacken due to not having the correct mix for good combustion, try using a cloth dipped in woodash or vingegar, also insure that the wood has 20% or less moisture content.
