is poor. Ok for day time. I have found the clips holding glass fail after 2 years then bolts holding the clips will snap off when trying to undo nuts. I have used heat on nuts to help remove them and added copper grease. I am an engineer so I do have an idea or two on how to deal with it. There are four of us with this model all suffer the same. I have now modified mine by simply drilling four holes for bolts and so have the three other owners. The handle adjusting bolt has seized on two puffins one I had to replace and my one which I have not tackled yet. Having said that I would still recommend one having used other stoves. Fix these issues and you get ten out of ten.
Stove expert replied: Try to leave a bed of ash on the grate to protect it and always remove the ash from the ashpan once riddling has taken place. When you riddle only do this until red embers fall through as over riddling will reduce the life time of the grate system.
when the glass blacked up completely within five minutes of first lighting it. However, it seems to have sorted itself out, and we've got better at controlling it. The glass soots up much less now and we've discovered tricks to help. It kicks out plenty of heat, especially if we burn coal on it. The box is small so wood has to be chopped up a lot to fit. Looks cute and we do love it, but would get a bigger one if we could.
