Review of Morso Squirrel Cleanheat stove

superb stove

Mark Black 12 years ago

I had looked at many other stoves and had been planning on purchasing one for quite some time, the Chinese models were poorly finished and the door catches struck me as rather flimsy. I saw the Squirrel on a 'for sale ' website and bought it , as it had only ever been used with turf (peat) it was in nearly new condition.The sitting room where it is installed is a 'cold 'room as it only gets the sun in the early morning and has a concrete floor.The stove does a fantastic job of heating unlike the open fireplace which consumed a huge quantity of fuel. One great advantage is that you can light it early go out for a few hours and it is still alight and the room is warm and cosy. The old saying is true 'you get what you pay for' These are fantastic and well worth the initial outlay.....get one you will not regret it !!!!

Stove expert replied: Known fact that most heat on an open fire goes up the chimney, a closed appliance gives you lots of heat even if the stove is quite small.
