Review of Stovax Riva 40 multi fuel

Riva 40 big disappointment

2 years ago

Have this stove 4 - 5 years now & like some other people I have never been happy with it. I burn smokeless fuel which is recommended, it has gone through 2 baffle plates and like other reviewers have stated it is very difficult to get parts for it. There are much better stoves on the market for less money. Would most certainly not recommend it.
