Review of Morso s10-40

Fantastic Quality compact modern stove

Matthew Cooper 8 years ago

I've had the stove installed now for 4 months. The stove itself is very stylish and modern, the full glass front looks very good and affords an excellent view into the fire especially when p positioned in a corner as mine is. It's fairly compact too. I too have noticed that the door closes on it's own, however this is not an issue for me and I consider it to be a positive safety feature since it prevents the door being left open and embers being potentially spat out onto flammable surfaces. Lighting the stove is very easy draw from chimney is excellent but that depends on your individual setup. No heat is transferred to the door handle so there's no need for gloves just to add a log. The air wash works very well while the fire is going but as it cools deposits are left on the glass. I tend to clean the glass before lighting with a wet piece of kitchen roll dipped in some of the old ash, this only takes seconds. The fire will take surprisingly large logs.The ash pan is very robust and well designed, all the ash falls in the loan so there's no mess whatsoever. The air vent is easily adjusted but does become quite hot, not so hot that you can't adjust without a glove though as it only needs to be tapped with the hand too move. Adjusting the vent has a very obvious effect on the fire. I've not been able to make the fire burn unattended overnight. If I load with logs I can leave for about 3 hours and it'll still be lit when I return to it. Overall I've been extremely pleased with the stove the main plus point that everyone seems too comment on is just how compact and unobtrusive the stove is in or room.I would definitely buy the same stove again and recommend too anyone although looking at the quality of its manufacture I genuinely believe it's going to last many many years. Not cheap but overall I believe it'll be worth the money, especially if you can source free logs;-)
