Review of Woodwarm Pheonix FireGem 5kw

Brilliant Stove

Nick Crabbe 3 years ago

Bought this and had it fitted 18 months ago. Prior to this stove we had a Stovax Stockton 5 and I can say without hesitation that the Woodwarm is like a Bentley whereas the Stovax is like a Kia (no disrespect meant to Kia owners). The Woodwarm is so easy to light, it gets up to temperature so much more quickly and really kicks out the heat. Above all though the glass is always spotless, we've never had to clean it, whereas the Stovax always sooted up every 3-4 fires and that was burning good dry timber and having it drawing to keep the supposed air wash system operating. I'll never buy a Stovax again. My very strong advice is spend the extra cash and get a Woodwarm. I'm a bit of a pedantic person and quite particular but I just can't fault the Woodwarm, it's just brilliant. I promise you will not be disappointed.
