Morso s50

This contemporary Morso model is very similar to the S10 model but has a higher nominal output.

As it is possible to connect via direct air supply to the outside it will be suitable for modern buildings constructed to a high insulation standard.

    This is a really nice stove well built and strong with a great view of the fire. The stove burns clean and gives great heat. The one issue I have is that it burns very very strongly even on
    the lowest setting. The burning rate is not really conrtrollable. My other stove, a Clearview stove, is not as modern looking or attractive but the burning rate is much more controllable. I find the only way to control the Morso is by limiting the burning logs to a very small amount.

    Stove expert replied: The flue draw may be excessive on this flue system compared to the one with the Clearview stove. A flue damper or stabilizer should rectify this and your installer can undertake a flue draw test to verify if this is the cause.

    We had a lot of choice and looked at many styles. Because we have linked it up to a warm air duct. system we opted for the s50. It has Morso quality all over it and (unlike some Morso's which
    can be over engineered) it is simple in it's design when removing baffle plates etc. The fire box is huge and even though when burning only wood it will light in the morning. It's argued that steel stoves do not retain heat but again in the morning it's definitely warm. Although there is just one air vent it's still controllable. I can't fault it!

    Stove expert replied: Good review and another good stove from Morso!!

    This is our first wood burnin stove and took us a long time to pick the one suited to our needs. Looking at the stove itself before lighting.. It is beautifully constructed and solid! Weights a fair bit too. The door opens and closes solidly and feels firm. The stay cool handle does its job. The ash pan and the ash release system is brilliant and simple. We light out fire every day from lunchtime and empty the pan maybe once a week. Lighting the fire is straightforward. No issues at all using the standard stick house method. Once going we use about 2x 30cm logs of average size every 90-110 minutes. This heats our open plan kitchen dining and sunroom. If it's lit for most of the day the heat does extend to the hallway and remainder of the house. We have definately cut back on our oil usage by maybe 2-3 hrs worth a day and replaced that with approx 5 logs a day. Controlling the burn is simple with the single operating lever but does take a bit of getting used to. The heat from the unit is fierce and sustainable. Very happy man and warmer wife and kids!

    Great appliance but have had a manufacturing issue with door closing. With door handle not fully engaged in order to allow air in when introducing new fuel the door seems to shift position and will not properly relocate on hinge lugs when I try to fully close the door. This only occurs when the stove has reached a highish temp so I can only assume some kind of issue being caused by expansion of the door/mechanism. This may be the reason I have not been totally satisfied with the airwash as I the have to leave the stove to extinguish with door ajar causing a build of of soot(?)overnight whilst cooling. Have had no problem with Morso issuing a replacement stove, in fact they have been great however there is some issue between themselves and my supplier as to who takes responsibility for re-fitting. I offered to get my engineer to quote for re-fit but was too expensive.

    Stove expert replied: This is unusual for a Morso stove, glad to hear it has been replaced.
