Review of Newbourne 40FS stove

Hot handle but lovely fire

Ashley Harrison 3 years ago

Purchased this stove in both my old house and now my new one. In my old house the handle never got too hot but with the new one I have, the handle isn't touchable and is a problem? It doesn't feel right for some reason...

Stove expert replied: Have you gone back to your supplier? This may be a change that has been made and often a manufacturer provides a glove for opening the stove due to the handle getting hot.
