Top five Christmas stocking fillers for wood-burning stove owners

We’ll freely admit that owning a wood burner can become a bit of a way of life. So what do you get the enthusiastic stove owner who has everything for Christmas?

Here are a few of the most popular gift ideas for woodburner owners. It’s by no means exhaustive, but hopefully it will help you to plan a few potential presents.

How a wood-burning stove can help you win the Tour De France. Maybe

We’re familiar with most of the weird and wonderful uses for wood-burning stoves. As well as the obvious use as a heating source, we know of customers who use their stove to toast marshmallows, dry fruit, keep slugs at bay (thanks to the ashes) and do all sorts of other things.

But we came across a new one last night: training for endurance cycling races.

With the weather outside starting to get a bit grim and the evening getting shorter, there are fewer opportunities for cyclists to get out on their bikes. And fewer still for them to replicate the conditions of a glorious summer’s day in Italy, Spain or France.

Unless, of course, said cyclist has a wood-burning stove in their home.

We got chatting to Emma Johnson (@magicatiken), who rides for the XRT Elmy Cycles team, and is preparing to ride across Europe next summer. And how is she preparing? By fixing her bike to a static turbo trainer in the same room as her stove.

Emma explained: “It’s great for training to prepare to cycle through the heat of the summer! I did 100 minutes climbing at 10% – in the heat!”

She does describe herself as a ‘mad cyclist’, so it’s probably not something to throw yourself into without a decent level of training first.

But if you have got your sights set on becoming the next Sir Bradley Wiggins or Lizzie Armitstead, here’s the piece of kit you need that doesn’t require any wheels or lycra: a wood-burning stove!

The cheapest wood-burning stoves

Just because you want to buy your wood-burning stove on a budget doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality.

Here are five cheap wood-burning stoves that are built to offer excellent value for money.

Mazona Signet 4kW Multi-fuel Stove

The very cheapest wood burner we offer is the Mazona Signet. With its 4kW heat output, its best suited to small spaces or use as a supplementary heating source. Continue reading

Five of the most popular inset wood-burning stoves

It’s no surprise that inset stoves are becoming increasingly popular. Rather than have to open up a fireplace to install a traditional stove, an inset stove (or a cassette stove, as they are sometimes known) will simply slot into a standard fireplace opening.

Once it’s in place, an inset stove has huge advantages over an open fire. First and foremost among those advantages is the fact that an open fire loses around 70% of the heat it generates straight up the chimney.

With an inset stove, that figure drops to below 30%.

Another major selling point is that many inset stoves do not require a flue pipe as long as they are fitted into a lined chimney that is in a good state of repair.

So, without further ado, here a five recommended inset stoves that are popular choices among our customers.

Dimplex Westcott Inset Multi Fuel Wood Burning Stove
Dimplex Westcott

The Dimplex Westcott is a reasonably priced, stylish inset stove. It juts slightly out of a standard fireplace opening in a modern, curved profile.

It’s a multi-fuel inset stove, which means you can burn wood and smokeless fuels. An airwash system ensures the glass is kept clear of soot and dirt, while its clever double-skinned construction allows heat to circulate around the room through natural convection. Find out more.

Mazona Crete 5 kW Inset Multi Fuel Wood Burning
crete

The Mazona Crete has a 5kW heat output, which makes it a great option for smaller to average-sized living rooms. It also comes with a very appealing price tag (just £350 at the time of writing).

The stove body is made from steel and boasts a sleek modern design. Find out more.

Arizona Denver 609 Black Enamel Multi Fuel 5.5 kW Inset Stove
Arizona Denver 609 Matt Black 6.5 - 7.8 kW Multi Fuel Wood Burning Inset Stove

Perhaps its the boxy profile that helps the Arizona Denver to retain more of the character of a traditional wood-burning stove than some inset stoves. The fact that it simply slots into your fireplace is almost incidental: this still looks like what most people picture when they think of a wood-burning stove.

A convection heat recovery system and an airwash system ensures that more of your fuel is put to good use heating your home. The airwash system will also keep your glass clear.

This 5.5kW draws air in from the room using the vents at the bottom of the stove. The air is heated, rises and is released through the vents above the door. Find out more.

Aarrow Inset Ecoburn 5 Plus Multi-Fuel Wood Burning Stove
ecb5fplus-inset_lb_1260_1

The contemporary but understated appearance of the Aarrow Ecoburn stove has won many fans, and the inset version is no exception. As with all the stoves on this list, it simply nestles into a standard fireplace opening.

An airwash system keeps the glass clear and improves heat circulation, while the tertiary burn ensures he highest levels of efficiency. Find out more.

Stratford 9HE-INSET Eco Boiler Multi-fuel Boiler Stove

eb9he-inset-g4

A slight departure from the other stoves on this list, the Stratford 9HE is an inset boiler stove. In other words, while it offers the same benefits as the other stoves featured here, it can also be plumbed into your heating system to provide hot water and heat your radiators.

Made by Arada – the same company that produces Aarrow stoves – the 9HE shares some of the aesthetic qualities of the Ecoburn. A large curved glass window – with an airwash system to keep it clean – adds to the appearance.

The stove boasts a discrete thermostatic control and an easily accessible water sensor. Find out more.
