Review of Stovax Stockton Milner stove
I had one of these installed at the beginning of this winter and the chimney lined during installation. The stove shop I used advised I used this particular stove for solid fuel as the firebox was the right shape for it.I've had the thing burning virtually none stop since Christmas, 24hrs a day, running it with the air fully open until the flame has gone off the fuel and then shut it down to half open and find it it be a great little stove. I burn Homefire fuel on it and running it this way seem to use less than lighting it every day. This seem to have settled down to around 5kg a day. A huge saving on the open fire I used to have and the thing picks up quickly when you put the fuel on it and is a very controllable source of heat. The only bad points are, the door seems to have small pits in the glass, but you can't feel them from the inside, you can;t see them when the thing's running and the fuel retaining bar has bowed, but still works just fine. The airwash clears the slight sooting 3/4 of the way up the door when it's opened up, this just happens when the fuel burns down and leaves a layer of ash over the top of it. It does creak a little when it warms up as well. I empty the ash pan and clean the grate out once daily and riddle it twice. The stove also keeps the dust that gets into the room to a bare minumum. All in all I'm very pleased with the purchase.
