on the Stockton 4. it was a real struggle finding one I liked that also fit in my fireplace (68 cm wide 71 cm high 37 cm deep) it just about fits in the hole and looks great! the room is 7m by 3.5 and it heats it really well. also, my room is not well insulated and very draughty. if I was going to find bad things to say about it I'd say that the fire box is a bit small so need to refuel it more often if running it on high but that doesn't bother me as I'm just happy it fits and I like refuelling anyway :) I was worried about the window being too small compared to other stoves but the window looks great and is a good view of the fire. the way it works is very impressive with the air wash system. the controls work really well and the whole thing shouts quality. I very almost went for the firefox 5 which seems like a good stove for the price but very pleased I paid extra for this one. I had a flue fitted and the draw is great. my cat pickles also likes it.

to get the air intakes on the rear set just right, however once this was done the stove has proved to be very easy to control. The airwash keeps the majority of the glass clear, just the bottom inch or so remains blackened,this is below the level of the log retainer so maybe this has something to do with it. Over night burn performance is reasonable too,cram as much wood in as you can shut the air vents and it will smolder away quite happily for eight hours or so. This stove has been used on a regular basis for almost 4 1/2 years now and the only part replaced so far is a new rope seal on the door,on the whole this is a cracking little stove.

rear plate buckling,but this is because of overheating so that's our problem. These were easily replaced by us, no "experts" needed. This little fire, via the chimney breast, warms our entire 3 bedroom house with ambient heat and makes the downstairs toastie warm.Our chimney sweep clears out about a kilo of soot a year and reckons its the cleanest burning fire he's ever seen, and we burn only grade 2 wood! We're looking to replace it but this little fire is going to be difficult to beat. A great investment.
Stove expert replied: Great feedback, and honest comments.
rather than sending someone to sort it out they sent a bag of spare parts. Now, a couple of years later, the handle seems to be jammed and we are wedging the door closed! I imagine this is partly because I assembled it badly / lack of servicing but then again it's a lot of money for a metal box and previous stoves I've had haven't given me a tenth of the bother so I do question the build quality.
Stove expert replied: it is worth remembering that with stoves the chain of support runs from installer to supplier to manufacturer. So it would be the installer or supplier that should be providing aftercare, not the manufacturer. I know that with other things this is not how it works, for example washing machines....but worth bearing in mind - go back to your installer or supplier first.
ease. The stove does need to be hot for the airwash to work and needs well seasoned wood. We cut our own wood so don't have a problem with the firebox size and by using a various selection of wood find the stove is very controllable. Would definitely buy another one should we ever have the need.
anything bigger as for us it heats a room 4m x 7m. The firebox size reflects this but i've never had a problem with log sizes. Airwash does work, but you need to get it up to temperature and use properly seasoned wood. we've had it for 3 yrs in a weekend place and it's been no bother at all.
plenty of heat for a 3*4m room, the firebox is small but accepts standard size pre-cut logs, the airwash does work though there is some buildup on the glass. We don't burn overnight so no comment there. We'd buy the same one again.
Stove expert replied: The smoking is probably down to the chimney rather than the stove. If the chimney is unlined consider lining and insulating it. Sometimes adding a sheet or two of newspaper on top of all your kindling can help when you are lighting the stove as it burns fast and helps to warm the chimney.
