Review of Morso Squirrel Standard stove
Morso Squirrel 1430
We've only owned the stove for about a week but already the central heating is refusing to come on! Overall we are hugely impressed but the stove does take some time to learn how to use effectively:1. Don't expect a roaring fire on your first attempt. It took us 3 or 4 smaller fires to build a decent bed of ash. 2. You need to get the fire really hot before you start chucking larger logs on - build it up gradually. If you add a log too soon, it will merely smoulder and blacken the glass. 3. We are using kiln dried ash logs but have found that if they are split to about 6 x 6 cm they ignite sooner and burn much better. 4. We are using an ecofan to help circulate the warm air round our large lounge (26' x 13' x 8.5') In conclusion, the fire is easy to start (with a good ash bed), burns wood brilliantly, once you've experimented, and heats a large lounge more than adequately (with door to the room fully open!). In fact, I can't sit within 6 feet of the thing!! Hugely happy with our purchase and would thoroughly recommend.
