Review of Morso Squirrel 1412 smokeless stove

Life with a squirrel

Mike McMinn 11 years ago

Compact stove sits recessed into our fireplace (as per illustration) so does not intrude into the room (and also hides the rather twee squirrel design!) Provides good supply of heat and visual interest of flames through the glass door. The glass tends to soot over but this is easily cleaned with vinegar and scourer. Has prompted most of our visitors to exclaim "we must get one!". After our first winter we are happier with it and have used it more than we expected.
