Review of Ottawa 5kW

Ottawa 5kw

Steve Anderson 2 weeks ago

This is my second stove now. My other one is a Firefox 5kw. I much prefer the Ottawa. It gives off great heat and has a lovely burn to it. Also the 3 air controls help with this. For not much more than 300 it's a bargain. I've been burning 4 bits of 2x2 6 inch lengths of wood per hour and it happily ticks over at 180 degrees and with the fan on top it heats the room wonderfully.
