Review of Stovax Stockton 7 woodburning stove

Excellent basic stove

Eoghan 9 years ago

We've had one of these for 2 years now (wood-only model), and have nothing negative to say about it. It's not fancy looking, and doesn't have any gimmicks, but if you're looking for an efficient (you can see the triple-burn combustion working), cost-effective, no-nonsense stove that's easy to use and performs well in every way, then this is it. If the glass blackens occasionally it's usually because the fire hasn't been burning hot enough, and getting a roaring fire going will remove most of it quickly enough.
