Review of Stovax Stockton Milner stove

Disappointed

Mark Davies 5 years ago

The Milner looks great but as a previous reviewer said, is hard work. We were advised to get this so minimal installation work was needed but in the end, the whole cavity had to be removed anyway, so we could have had a freestanding cheaper stove. The capacity is tiny, the glass blackens almost as you watch it and unless you are constantly vigilant (ours is in a bedroom) will fizzle out to nothing unless stocked up regularly. Looks great but wish we had something else.

Stove expert replied: What flue draw is there and has the chimney been lined, this will help to improve the draw which is possibly the cause of your problem. I would suggest further investigation, also do make sure the fuel you are using is well seasoned and of good quality.
