Review of Westfire 32 insert

Westfire 32 inset

Dave Polzin 8 years ago

Within 2 months the top firebrick cracked and broke from front to rear this was replaced with a thicker one (implying there was a weakness in the design) unforturately this new brick also broke within 2 months. Every care had been taken in loading and operating the stove.
