Review of Morso Squirrel Standard stove

Fantastic Stove

Dee 6 years ago

I purchased this stove after carefully reading all the reviews on this site. I have not had a woodburner, so was sailing blind. I looked around at many makes of stove but Morso felt much better built, extra pennies well spent in the long run. Everything is solid, fire very easy to light.(not had one failed attempt!)Easy to clean/empty. Stays in all night with just a good handful of anthracite lumps. Have changed to hardwood now and its still fabulous. Very easy to control too. There is not one bad point about it. I would recommend this stove and I would buy another. The airwash, glass does get sooty very quickly and I do clean it every few days, but as I said I'm new to this, so it's probably operator error. I have a 10 x 12 lounge and it heats it very quickly from cold and soon I'm opening the door to another room. This stove lives at a smallish cottage and with all the down stairs doors open it makes it comfortable, without other heat forms. Looks good too! I trawled the internet and got a good deal to boot! Roll on snow....

Stove expert replied: Sounds like this is heating the whole downstairs which can be bad for one stove and the money invested.
