Review of Sonderskoven stove

Very disappointed

Helen G 4 years ago

Jan 2015. It was installed in Feb 14 and (so far!) we have had to have the handle replaced, the steel/iron that runs across the front of the grate in behind the bars is buckled. One of the bars keeps falling out as the little catch on the end has fallen off. The seal around the door has come off. The stove was broken in gently and due to very mild summer when stove was not used has really only been in continuous use for a max of 6 months. Happy with the look of it and the heat it radiates but maintenance of this stove is going to be a nightmare. The supplier is very unhelpful about it all which really isn't helping matters. Would not recommend this stove due to problems experienced so far.
