Review of Villager Chelsea Duo stove

Great but might be imporved

Pete Moody 8 years ago

While the burner works well and as designed, whenever I open the doors, ash caught in the ridge above the rope falls onto the floor. Perhaps an angle or a bevel above the rope seal would prevent this.

Also the grate riddling bar often detaches from the grate slats causing the bar to sit on top of the ash tray.
