Review of Scan Andersen 4-5 stove

Scan Anderson - fantastic stove

Diana Carswell one year ago

We've had our stove for around 10 years and couldn't be happier with it. It does click a bit when first lit but this stops when up to temperature. Ours is installed in the living room of a 2010 built property and is more than able to proved adequate heat for the living room. The rest of the house is heated by oil central heating which we tend to kick out after dinner and retire to living room.

It lights really easily and the glass stays relatively clean. I have also had a Morso¬ł squirrel stove but far prefer the scan Anderson - it's easier to control, easier to light and provides more heat. Another huge plus is it produces v little ash - we only need to clean the ash box once every 7-8 uses (stove running for 4-5 hours each time)

Stove expert replied: The ash compartment should not be allowed to build up so that it touches the underside of the grate as it restricts the airflow and can shorten the grates life. Ideally it should be cleared out daily.
