Stove expert replied: There is an option coal basket that can be added to this model which would allow for up to 20% of smokeless fuel to 80% wood being used. If the stove is burning too fast it would be advisable to get the flue draught checked as it may be too high and may need some control to regulate this.

Stove expert replied: yep on the first few firings your stove will tend to smell a bit funny and give off some white smoke. This is the hi temp paint curing. I'd recommend opening some windows until the smell goes away. One or two firings should do the trick. If the smell is still there make sure you are getting the stove nice and hot.
This is truly a very very good woodburner, the only fault I found was that the handle seems to be to close to the face of the stove, because, when hot if you touch the face with the 'free'... [ read more ]
