Tiger Plus stove
Most Recent Review
We have been very pleased with our Tiger stove for the last month or so that we have had it, but unfortunately the glass has cracked, it started as just a little crack and has now gone right... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Glass cracking can be caused by a few reasons: knocking when loading the stove, fixings being too tight and not allowing movement, possibly a faulty piece, as it is not covered by warranty a replacement will need to be purchased. Be careful that air is not drawn in through the gap allowing the stove to over-draw, I would siggest getting a replacement sooner rather than later.

Have been using the tiger plus stove for over 2 years now. Looked at many other stoves before buying the tiger. The main reason for going for the tiger plus is due to the large width for burning... [ read more ]

Brilliant stove at the price, fitted our instllation requirements perfectly having shallow depth. Burns well using solid fuel ovoids, wood or heat logs burning on a vermiculite pad to cut the underdraft. Controlability improved by re-engineering the primary and secondary air controls; subsequently, overnight burning using smokeless ovoids is not a problem. You do get what you pay for, but at the price there is little competition, would certainly buy the same again.... [ read more ]
Never had a stove before so didnít know anything about them. Did my research thoroughly and was drawn to this Tiger by its dimensions (shallow and compact enough to meet building reg. re distance... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: House hold coal should not be used in a closed appliance due to it having a longer flame than smokeless fuels, it can shorten the life of internal components, prevent the airwash from working effectively and is not recommended so will invalidate the warranty!! Suggest you change to a smokeless fuel that is not petroleum based.
After a lot of research and a last minute budget restrictions I decided to go for the tiger stove, it was easy enough to install (with a flue liner) and I have not been disappointed at all by... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: A satisfied stove owner! It is always worth trying a few smokeless fuels as they do vary.
After much research I installed one 2 years ago in a holiday cottage that I let out. Installed a new stainless insulated flue at the same time. The fire is easy to light and contrary to what... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: The cost is not always an important factor as shown with review!! This stove has a great review and is well the money that it costs. In a holiday cottage you can never be sure of how stoves will be treated so this must be a robust model.
I read the "tiger" reviews on this site and decided to get something more expensive but then all three Stovefitters who quoted for the job suggested Tigers so I thought "Why not, it's so much... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: yep dry wood is the key. Funnily enough it makes much more difference than how much your stove costs! If you can source and then store one or two years worth of wood in advance then you will save money and can make sure that it is very dry (20% moisture or under).
Have had the Tiger for a year. As someone else said, you get what you pay for. Its worst aspect is lack of controllability. The slider controls are just too crudely made - they leak air very... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: a flue damper might help here to bring the chimney draw down a little. That might then make the stove more controllable.

Finish on body flaking off allowing rust, is it actually cast iron? Smokes when opening door even when flue very hot, throat plate very close to door, design fault?
