Review of Prity FG W15

Impartial Review - Prity FG W15

The stove works well on all counts. It lights very easily, burns wood, coal, or smokeless, and I find it very controllable, once you get used to it - from 'tickover' to almost furnace.

Heats a 200lit tank of water from cold in about 30 mins, and runs my eight downstairs radiators comfortably and economically.

We've not had it burn overnight as yet, but can leave for 5 to 6 hours while we're out with both controls turned down to nil, and the stove is still alight when we return so I'm optimistic that it will burn overnight if 'banked up.'

I would have no hesitation in recommending the stove - it's no design masterpiece, but it does the job pretty well (and cooks bread as well!)
