Review of Nectre Baker’s Oven

Great stove, super heat and good for cooking and baking

4 years ago

We wanted a stove with a useful oven and the cook surface on top was an added bonus. Having the fire in the top compartment is lovely because it can be seen. When going, this stove easily heats a three room space that only had one radiator (previous owner''s set up). The floor of the stove compartment sits below the door so its easy to have an ash bed of 1-2 inches. It does need to be cleaned out through the door but we have not found that a problem. We find the one adjustable air control is easier to work than our Dovre 250. The stove compartment is big so wood of all sizes fits well. We've used the oven only a bit as we're still learning to control the temperature using the damper. It does need a lot of air when starting up and we have a window open for the first five minutes usually. We've only had it one winter and it saw a lot of use but no issues with the finish so far. the handles do get hot when the stove is really going full out, especially the damper control located on the top. All in all, we are super pleased with this stove!!
