Review of Saey 94 stove

Saey 94

Russell Jennings 8 years ago

Our first stove was a Chinese stove (in our hall) and were very happy with it but then we had nothing to compare it to.

As we were so happy with this we decided to put a stove in our sitting room and so we bought a Charnwood. We were not that happy with the Charnwood as it did not seem to radiate the heat as well the Chinese cast iron stove we had in our hall. We discovered the cause of this was due to it being steel and not cast iron.

But the problem with the Chinese stove was it expanded when hot and contracted when cold, and so kept breaking the seal with the flue pipe. I decided to then take out this stove and replace it with a Saey 94 and I could not believe the difference. It did not expand or contract and the efficiency of its burn and heat output compared to the Chinese stove was second to none. I then decided to take our the Charnwood in the sitting room and replace it with a

Nestor Martin as I only wanted a 7 to 8 kw stove whereas the Saey was 11kw. The Nestor Martin has been far superior to the Charnwood in output of radiant heat but it not as good the Saey. I would recommend the Saey from my experience to any one considering a stove.

We have the Saey stove now for 3 years.

Stove expert replied: Having had experience of three different makes of stoves gives this review a real reflection of good and bad points. Glad to hear that the Saey is working so effectively.
