  • NOT a multi fuel

    Steve Laing 5 years ago

    bought on may 2015 worked as it should with sticks / logs put on coal and 2 of the fire bricks split be weary what you burn ash pan is somewhat ill fitting, could do with a bigger one, as you have to shovel up excess

    Stove expert replied: The Esprit 8 is a multifuel stove and will not cause the liners to split, split liners can still be used providing they are protecting the stove metal by staying in place and do not require urgent replacement. The ash pan is the largest that can be used in a stove of this size as the opening needs to take into consideration the integrity of the body and any larger may compromise this. Stove Vacs are available to hoover up any spilt ash or just use a fireside shovel.

  • Great product, big view of firebox

    Rachael Coggins 6 years ago

    Having had a few other stoves previously it is very pleasing to find a well crafted stove made in the UK. Solid build and large window gives great viewing of the fire. We have a boiler so our
    gas is redundant when this is working. Easy to light and control, do use the glove provided as the handles do get hot!! (Not a problem once you know this is expected). Riddling takes longer due to the new style of grate but the plus side is you can get more fuel in the box. Will stay in overnight once you have mastered where to set the air controls. Great stove giving plenty of heat.
