Review of Sonderskoven stove

sonderskoven traditional

Alan Barbone 4 years ago

I have fitted a number of these stoves and a lot more smaller lovenholms and have run a sonderskoven as a demo stove for the last 2 years.

I cannot understand why there is negative feedback. The stove is great and has technology that is as good as practically anything on the market. The firebox, glass window is massive and the airwash / tertiary air is excellent with stunning flame pattern. The stove is heavy, well built and looks lovely. anyone who says it does not run well has clearly had a sub standard installation (perhaps without a flue liner) and is running it on poorly seasoned wood. These are great stoves and look fantastic in the right setting.
