Review of Stovax Riva 40 multi fuel

Fantastic Stove

Luke Jones 4 years ago

I was a bit nervous about getting a stove with such a small firebox.

The Riva 40, however, produces more than enough heat to bring our 28 square meter living room up to temperature quickly.

Once the wood has started to burn the preset "optiburn" setting is perfect to allow a secondary burn of the smoke.

The controls work almost instantly.

It is very unlikely that you would get an overnight burn using wood but not everyone needs that feature anyway.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this insert to anyone.
