Review of Westfire 16 stove

Westfire 16

Ralph Seeley 12 years ago

Gives out a lot of heat for a pure wood burner. The only problem is the airwash which in our experience is poor.

Stove expert replied: A trick with the Westfire 16 stove is to crack the door open a tad when lighting it. Wait till it is nice and hot and going well before closing the door and then make sure that you close the ash pan and primary air slider. This should help keep the window clearer.
