Review of Prity FG W15

Good stove . Slightly flawed

CHRIS Gardner 3 years ago

Owned this for about 3 years and love it. . Super easy to light. Eats wood very fast. Not a hope to keep it in overnight. Ours had NO rope in the doors. I have not fitted any - perhaps I should ?. Never had the door soot up. I think the air through the large grate at the boiler bottom is to large. I have reduced ours by half. Still the wood burns away fast. Ovoids ( coal ) burn ok and last longer and will stay in overnight. Cooking can be done but not easily as the fire needs to be kept low. My main gripe is the fast burning of the wood -- any one any idea's. I do love this stove and rate it a good buy. Our model will not supply radiators but is the same as the above

Stove expert replied: If there is supposed to be rope seals on the door as per other stoves then adding this should help with the amount of air being drawn into the stove and give greater control (using less fuel for same heat!). Check if there should be some before adding though.
