Review of Stovax Brunel 1A stove

Fits perfectly & so Adorable

Sarah Stephenson 10 years ago

It is adorable, a bit like a family pet. It says it has an airwash system but depends on wood type as to how quick the glass gets dirty. I am surprised at the size of log I can fit in, it's a bit like a tardis, which means you can put one big chunk which keeps it going and the wood pile lasts forever. The control is very sensitive and you can create fantastic swirling effects. Gratins cook well if left on top in a shallow cast iron pan. Justlove it. A tip on cleaning glass, wet some scrunched up newspaper, dip in the cold ashes, scrub glass (when cold) and clean off with dry clean newspaper, cheaper and safer than the acid cleaner sold.
