Review of Westfire 23 stove

Great fire!!

Richard Williams 5 years ago

I had the uniq 23 in my home for 3 years. It's perfect in most ways. It kicks out some impressive heat with total control. I do fit fires for a living and have noticed other reviews saying that they have no control over it. It caught me out once and couldn't understand why I couldn't control it.. Realised that it was the ashpan draw wasn't closed properly causing to much air for combustion in the firebox. Hope this helps guys. Replacement bricks are costly as well the the door seal.
