What a fantastic stove burns very hot so you need plenty of wood although once hot turned down low will burn for a good time with a nice couple of hardwood logs. Only problem with ours was the bearings fell apart after about 14 months and after paying out for a quality stove really didnt expect to have to make a new bearing and take the whole thing apart including uninstalling and reinstalling my flue :( Apart from that very happy great stove loads of heat doesn't get used quite as much as we thought because our tiled floor with underfloor heating is awesome but with doors wide open in the middle of winter creates a great focal point and keeps us warm. Another best point is hours after you've gone to bed the stove is still warm to touch even in the morning thus keeping heat in your house / room throughout the night.

Stove expert replied: A shame that a problem caused so much disruption but overall seems a good quality stove with pleasing results.
