Review of Morso Squirrel Cleanheat stove

Get your Vents set up correctly and it will burn for ages on coal.

After much internet trawling and checking out lots of reviews this stove was the out and out 5kw stove to have. Looks stunning and made of an high grade cast iron which retains heat very well.

I have had it for 5 years now and I have realised that smokeless coal is the way forward. I use 1 scuttle a day and have both vents slightly open. I add 8 pieces of coal at 8pm and for sure at 8am it is still glowing red only requiring a shake and a coal top up to get the heat back up again. Absolute no brainer , would buy again for sure. Like I have said its all in the set up when burning, very easy to keep it running all through the winter. :-)

Stove expert replied: Great comments, very efficient fuel usage but do please give short periods of fast burn regularly as it is not good for the flue system to be slumbering 24/7.
