Review of Morso Squirrel Standard stove

Excellent control, brilliant stove.

2 years ago

I fitted a Squirrel in a 1930''s Showmans Wagon. It was recommended by a Narrow Boat builder. The control from the air vent system is excellent, what ever fuel I am burning. I burn wood and sometimes coal for overnight. In the Winter when it was -4 I had to open the door of the Wagon as I was too hot!!

I can control it so efficiently that I can cook either in it or on it !! I absolutely love it !! Its pretty too !! I have bought the water boiler to go in it but its not fitted yet. I am now looking at another Morso for another project, I like the build quality and I am reluctant to go to another make after being so impressed with the Squirrel !!!

Stove expert replied: Do bear in mind that once the boiler is added the room heat will be reduced! Good review
