Review of Portway 1 contemporary stove

Weven Damper 9 years ago

Had this stove for three years and its excellent. We had it installed in addition to the central heating but now almost never use the heating. Great with either smokeless (we use cpl no 5 at £8.25/25kg) and hard wood or just wood. It's an exempt appliance so ok in a smoke control area. The only negative is that the back fire brick breaks up after a year and £40 each Fits in very tight spaces which was necessary for us. Great little stove :)
