  • Superb little stove

    Richard Bartley 6 years ago

    The Squirrel 1412 is a lovely little 5Kw stove. We picked the squirrel design and got it from one of the major online shops saving a few hundred quid off the RRP. Free 2 man delivery was included... []

  • Love my stove.

    Angela Collins 7 years ago

    I had wanted a stove for years but kept putting it off. I eventually bit the bullet in November 2012 because of the rising cost of my gas bill. I chose a Morso 1412 because I liked the look... []

    Stove expert replied: Great review and I agree that a thermometer is a good addition for any stove user. Sounds very cosy!

    Stella Ridgway 7 years ago

    We moved aboard our boat in August & she came fitted with this model of Morso. I am not sure what people are burning but we have it in 24/7 now mostly on smokeless; with the odd wood. We also... []

    B. Houghton 8 years ago

    A darn good investment, heating two adjoining rooms downstairs and one bedroom above. Burns wood and solid fuel well, solid fuel being the longer lasting. To get the best heat you have to fill... []

  • Not quite what I hoped for

    Dave Edwards 8 years ago

    Our first stove so excuse my ignorance. Takes a good couple of hours to get running hot and during this time you do need to keep your eye on it so no nipping back to bed on a winters morning... []

    Stove expert replied: This is difficult to comment on as it is not clear if anyone assisted in the choice of stove who has experience and could advise on what to expect. This stove only produces 6kW's so it is not surprising that it is not heating the whole house. The fuel used may well be reduced depending on what type is currently being burnt and this should be explored to insure that value for money is being made. Cast iron stoves do take longer to heat up and radiate their heat but they maintain their heat longer when the firebox gets low, this should have been explained prior to purchase. Perhaps try a smokeless fuel to see if the performance improves.

  • Hot little squirrel

    Tim 8 years ago

    Our requirements were to heat a large sitting/dining room, preferably without going above 5kw and having to fit a brick air vent. We wanted to use our chimney and the stove had to fit the fireplace... []

    Stove expert replied: Using the fan to dissipate the heat is a great idea but do check that the mirror does not get too hot - can be a problem with anything that is fitted above a stove.

  • Pretty much flawless

    Tom 9 years ago

    After trialling an old Morso 1410 in my kitchen/diner/living room last year I decided to take the plunge and get a new 1412 installed. I built up the hearth myself, and had a HETAS engineer... []

    Stove expert replied: Insure that you give any stove two short periods of fast burn in every 24hours (15 - 20 mins max draw) this will help to keep the flue clear but make sure that the flue gets swept at least once for smokeless fuels and twice for wood in every season.
