Review of Morso Squirrel Standard stove
We inherited the Morso with the house. It is in the kitchen - 20 foot by 16 but vaulted, so a big area for such a small stove to warm. This was our first experience of a woodburner so it has taken a while to get used to it. It is Ok but smokes a fair bit on starting until the chimney gets warm. The airwash system is primitive and doesn't really work that well, but you really do need well-seasoned hardwood logs (we don't use solid fuels). One year isn't really enough - two years will be better. It really makes a difference. The main thing that has helped is a stove-top fan. We were sceptical at first but they really work and the Squirrel performs better than its size suggest it can. In summary, it's a nice stove, but I think you can buy better (and cheaper). We are now fitting a Little Wenlock and the Intrepid II in two more downstairs rooms so with all 3 hope to avoid the need to use the outrageously expensive oil-fired CH!
