Review of Westfire 21 standard stove

Westfire 21 opinion

David O'Callaghan 13 years ago

The installation was very easy, the performnce in a larger than average room seems good, despite the fact there is no firebox to catch the ash and that the machine was not designed to be used overnight I would happily recommend the 21 to anyone! its simple clean lines will not date I feel. this stove is beautifully made. When I compare it to a certain other Danish stove (Hwam), of comparable performance, I am still astonished to realise that I can buy 2.3 of these Westfire 21's for the same price!! That coupled to the fact theres not thin piece of pressed sheet steel in sight. This must be an absolute bargain

Happy heating!
