Looking at this stove....it seems perfect or us. Just wondering if anyone had any feedback or tips before we take the toasty warm plunge!

The stove was installed over the summer and I have been using it daily since late September. No downsides as yet.

I believe the company I purchased it from imports the stoves themselves so my only concern is the availability of parts in the future.

What company are you using?

Hi both. Thanks for your replies.

We're looking at quite a few different stoves by different brands. Thought we'd settled on the contura until today when we saw a lovely dimplex one.

Can't make up our minds, and the reviews online are not really representative of the truth I don't think...we saw a stove come out of the top of a list, but then saw it only had one review by a person who obviously loved it...we were hoping for a page of reviews which was a bit more realistic. Does that make sense?

Did masses of research and the contura came top!
Swedish company and the Swedes know about stoves!
