Review of Parkray Consort 9 Slimline

Great Stove

5 years ago

We had this fire installed just over a year ago and it has been brilliant. Although we have the multi-fuel option, we only burn kiln dried wood. Given the width of the stove it is easy to get large logs into the fire box. The air inlets are easy to use and control the burn of the fire, which makes getting it going from cold very easy indeed. Once it’s up and running and the metal has heated through, the heat output from the fire is very good burning good quality wood. It is possible to pile wood on at night and wake up to the fire still going in the morning. It has also been easy to clean as the burn is so efficient leaving next hardly any carbon residue on the glass. I would recommend this stove.
