Review of Parkray Consort 4

Parkray Consort 4

Jack Currie 9 years ago

After a great deal of careful research I purchased this stove because of its size and appearance. It was small enough to fit in the space I had available and large enough to have a 'presence' in the room. I considered that some of the smaller stoves were insignificant in appearance.

I installed the stove myself and found it an easy task. The stove has now been installed and used - infrequently because of the summer months - for about 5 months. I am happy with the result.

It is very easy to light and to stoke. I burn only good seasoned timber and have had no problems at all.

Stove expert replied: Comments above are good but I see it has low mark for control ability but no comment to support this which would be interesting.
