I decided after visiting your website to give it a go, how hard could it be? Although the majority of my project went to plan I had difficulty with my builders opening. Both Julian and Aaron where both on the other end if the line and helped me through my issue and helped me choose the right stove! The fire was the perfect addition to our home over the festive period so cosy and warm! Your Christmas will never be the same again!! Well done guys great website, great advice and excellent products! Thank you very much
Julian and Arran have been a joy to deal with through the whole process. My fitter could not beat the deal offered for the Saltfire ST2 stove and 10m Duraflue liner and told me to go for it.
He and I were also very impressed with the Stove, small but belts out a lot of heat when seasoned and the 3 (three) inlet system makes running it easy.
I did the classic mistake of booking the date first and then ordering (something both Julian & Arran do not recommend) but everything turned out ok (although Arran did ring the warehouse/transport company to make sure on my behalf! Thanks). I was lucky, please order and receive first BEFORE your fitter arrives.
Liner arrived first then stove shortly after. Fitter told me installation was easy.
I also bought the Kindle Cradle and start all my fires with easy. Do yourself a favour and add one to the basket when ordering.
Very happy, 10/10.

Lovely stove, very simple design, easy to light and great value. Julian was very helpful on advising stock availability. Stove just fitted so going through the tempering process but even with small burns excellent heat output. Looking forward to a toasty warm winter.
stove pipe delivery driver rang 1 hour before arrival,excellent.
had to ring back to chase stove,but stovefitters gave me date and stuck to it,well done,thanks.
Great website to identify the fire we wanted. Easy ordering and delivery very quick. Customer service excellent. Product brilliant. Following stove fitters manuals eady to install. Looking good and very cosy for Christmas
Excellent friendly service and advice. Highly recommend you use them.
I spent some time looking at stoves and suppliers before committing. I phoned several companies and visited several more but the most informative was Stovefitters, both speaking to them on the telephone and watching their helpful YouTube videos. I live too far away for a visit, or to use them to install but I was still able to buy from them. Distance made little difference and my woodburner (a red Saltfire ST2) was prepared and delivered on time and as agreed, on the Friday before my builders arrived on the Monday. The burner is easy to light and control and looks great: a super addition to our house. When buying a woodburner, you need good information and I did not trust all the advice I was given by my local companies: I am just happy to have found Julian and Arran at Stovefitters. I will be buying another stove next year and will buy from Stovefitters again.
First off, great service from TSFW. Few issues with deliveries but all about couriers simply not doing the job their paid to do. Arran and Julian both great at getting it sorted out. We fitted the stove ourselves and have had it in use for a number of weeks now with no complaints what so ever, looks great and gives out a fantastic heat. So many stoves to choose from, we where unable to find anywhere else offering the same choice combined with all the helpful information and service. One stop shop for all our stove needs.
Great service, prompt delivery ready to be installed!!! Have already recommended this website, thanks Liam
Excellent customer service and quick delivery and kept fully up-to-date with delivery info fitted it all myself with excellent help from the site and team the stove itself is very nice looks great quality and am very impressed only used it a few times and seems great only downside seems to be the amount of heat I'm getting for the amount of wood I seem to be throwing at it although I am only using softwood trial and error i suppose until i get used to the vent controls but overall very impressed all round
The Saltfire ST2 is exactly what were looking for, the large glass window door front, clean lines and contemporary look. Great stove all round. A problem we had was dealt with swiftly and politely by stove fitters, I would not hesitate to use them again, great service and very happy with our purchase.
Excellent little stove. We have only used it a few times so far but it seems to pump out masses of heat and draws really well with the duraflue liner. With all the information from the Stove Fitters Warehouse and using the recommended 'fitting pack' it made it relatively easy for me as a complete amateur to line our chimney and fit the stove within regulations. All the information is provided with the pack and on the website including any problems you may come across. It was even cheaper to buy the stuff from stovefitters than popping down the road to Wareham nearby where Saltfires' warehouse is.
We had a great experience ordering and receiving our stove, liner and fitting pack from stove fitters warehouse. Julian and his team are very professional in what they do and the stove, fitted myself, is a great addition to our home. We got the saltfire st2 stove and I would highly recommend to anyone. Our order didn't arrive the day I asked for but that was down to courier company not stove fitters warehouse. When I contacted stove fitters Julian immediately sent out my order on a next day delivery and it arrived 9am next morning. So we got great service from them.
This stove is excellent value for money and looks the part. Easy to use and produces a lot of heat. The service we received from Stovefitters was excellent, stove delivered next day and packaged well. Would highly recommend.
Good stove at a good price. Three air vents takes a bit of getting used to but I am happy with the stove... the only downside for me is that the ashtray, or whatever it's called is a bit small so it needs emptying more often. Great service from Stovefitters warehouse and the website has the most comprehensive guide to stove installation I have found online. Fitted myself and got it signed off by a HETAS registered man, who was happy with my work, and paid him £100.
Great little stove. The big window is a real treat and gives an excellent view of the fire which, thanks to the vent positions, burns differently to most other stoves I've used and we love it! Draws really well -even with only 3.5m of flue- and puts out loads of heat. Vents provide good control of burn rate (sounds obvious, but not all stoves seem to do this as well as the ST2). Dealt with Julian at Stovefitters and couldn't be happier with the service.
Followed the stove filters manual from start to finish, including fitting this stove. Very happy with the performance, look and ease of use. Great sitting in front of your own handy work, thanks for the great website.
Really happy with stove, looks great and pleased with performance. Delivered on time, great website.
Excellent stove very pleased with the service and prompt delivery - would recommend.
Very pleased with our stove. Fitted ourselves and is ridiculously easy. Awaiting BC sign off and am yet to use in height of summer but looks great! First class service and info when required.
Very happy with the Saltfire ST2.Love the understated shape and the fact that it's a convector stove. Fitted the whole thing myself, liner and all. The liner was particularly easy, being 5" diameter it just slid down the chimney. I was able to lift the stove on my own, although I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. Had a Hetas engineer check it at various stages and sign it off when done. Still doing the 'small burns' to build up the tempering, but you can tell it's going to crack out some heat.
One niggle is that when it's windy the wind whistles through the air vents in the stove, but you just have to adjust the vents a little and it stops.
Very pleased overall.
Very happy with my stove. Looks fabulous fitted and price wise was more competitive ly priced than other similar products I looked at. Stovefitters were also very helpful with their advice.
Having shopped around the local stove outlets and seen the prices the ST2 seemed a real bargain. We were also looking for something with a more contemporary look to match our 70's bungalow so the ST2 seemed ideal especially with a colour choice. We thought the flue pipe might have to be sprayed to match but the red and black contrast looks good to me. Having owned a Villager many years ago it's apparent stoves have moved on in terms of efficiency and therefore I'm looking forward to the opportunity of reducing my heating costs this coming winter. Excellent all round in terms of service, support, materials and outcome.
Very good looking stove, and really easy to fit, no thing to do other than plug the flue in. Observations: It's a convection stove so not made of really thick cast iron but twin wall thiner sheet metal. The air adjusters are small which makes it look nice but are subsequently very close to the box so get vvvvvvv hot
Purchased a Saltfire ST2 (5kW) for my loft conversion. Great looking fire, installed without any problems.Haven't had the opportunity to fire it up yet because of other outstanding work so can't comment on performance, but so far very pleased with my purchase and the service from Stovefitters personnel.
Great stove. I was looking for a stove under £500 and after reading several reviews decided on the st2. Very impressed by style and functionality. Delivery was quick and all my questions were answered over the phone and then emailed for reference. Would definitely recommend both stove and stove fitters warehouse.
We set our budget for a stove at £500 and I was not impressed by the build quality of anything that I saw until we found the ST2.
The design is very nice both aesthetically and functionally and the installation was a doddle.
Heat output is fantastic - I dread to think how hot the room would get with a >5kw unit.
Overall, very happy with the purchase and I hope it stands the test of time keeping us warm through many winters to come.
As for "Stovefitterswarehouse", they have been a pleasure to deal with going the extra mile at every opportunity and providing advance solutions to problems I didn't even know I was going to encounter.
Wow! What a great stove.Removable baffle for sweeping is ace. Bought this stove after reading reviews on here. Great heat output,good looking, good air vent controllers. Marvellous viewing window. One gripe I have is "the firebrick at the rear split in two, I have filled/joined it with fire cement and this seems to be holding" if it splits again I'll call julien for advice. For the money this stove is fantastic!
What a great little stove for the price. Arrived in a couple of days to the North East of Scotland, easy to install and looks fab, lovely compact design would look good in any size room, certainly throws out bags of heat for a small stove with very little fuel, easy to control with the three air flow controls. Highly recommended.
Good quality stove with plenty of air options, throws loads of heat out for its size, removable baffle allowed fitting of clay pot adapter.Looks great fitted in. Quick delivery and great service. Would defiantly recommend.
Excellent customer service. Delivered in great time and everything packaged perfectly
The stove is amazing at throwing the heat out. Easily able to leave the lounge door open and Heat the hallway at same time
Would definitely buy from here again
Stove exceeds expectations. Everything easy to fit. Good advice when ordering. Will, indeed already have recommended.
Great stove for the money, very controllable and decent sized firebox. Lots of heat for a 5kw.
This is an excellent little stove for the price, and its multifuel too!
I was originally attracted to the Ecol clarity but when I included the cost of a twin wall and installation and I realised it was out of my budget and Julian and Arran suggested the saltfire ST2 made by the same manufacturers, the look is very similar. We haven't regretted buying this stove & the heat output is plentiful , I've used both wood and anthracite with the latter producing a much hotter heat output and a more economical burn time, wish it was possible to add photos or vidoes to the review!
If you want to nit pick then as mentioned by other reviewers the paint has warn away a little around the air controls but this may be because the stoves made from steel rather than cast iron, so far thats the only minor flaw and we can touch up the paint in the summer, and seriously at this price its not really a problem and is only cosmetic not a design fault!
This stove deffo gets 2 thumbs up and its British quality made not some cheap Chinese import to boot!
Stove fitters are amazing and their help was invaluable in every way! They designed my twin wall, met with detailed shipment requirements as I was forwarding to the Scottish isles and talked us through fitting technicalities when we had trouble getting someone out to fit it and decided to go it alone! Julian really does give an outstanding service and nothing is dismissed as too much trouble or too silly a question from the stove novice! I can highly recommend their services from start to finish. My duraflue twinwall is also fab and has withstood Tiree winds of 75 knots, I have since removed the weather cowl fitted an H-cowl to combat a shorter flue and downdrafts during strong winds (most if the time here!) Which has proved an excellent remedy.
The stove is a great little stove with a lovely contemporary look. Easy to fit and looks great.
Product was shipped quickly and communications have been great. Would more than happily recommend and will use the Stove Fitters Warehouse again if we get to fit another stove.
Extremely tidy stove. It has a surprisingly large window, with a good airflow across it which has kept clean so far. It gives out a good amount of heat with only a small amount of wood. We are very happy with our purchase.
Received the stove in good time, good packaging. All appears to be good so far. Have yet to install it and check it in full but so far so good! The purchase and subsequent communication was clear and efficient
saltfire ST2 installed and running within a couple of days of delivery. great stove at a very competitive price. Very good service from stove fitters warehouse despite unhelpful delivery driver.
Really good website if you want to self install as I did all the info you need on the site (if not email and they send the answers) stove nice looking big glass plenty of heat one drawback, only used 4 times and paint around door handle worn off and also around airwash lever. They must have just walked past it with an open tin of paint when they "painted"it. But this is in no way any reflection on stove fitters warehouse, but on the manufacturers.
Purchased the Saltfire ST2 Mk2 stove along with the stub-nose adaptor and vitreous flue pipe. Received all the items in a timely fashion and are exactly how they are advertised. Installed the stove this weekend and it is really awesome. With the large viewing window the fire looks really nice and a perfect size for my room.
I have to mention the website is good, all the deals are displayed on the product page and aren't hidden. Will also give 5+ stars for the customer service. Julian and his team were fast to respond to emails and went beyond the my expectations which was good to see. Will definitely recommend them to anyone thinking of buying a stove.
We have just had our saltfire st2 installed and as well as looking amazing, the heat it produces is fantastic!! The quality of the build and the ease of use makes this a must have purchase. I will definitely be recommending to all my friends that they speak to Julian and order from here.
Not installed yet but looks as good as in the pictures online. Well recommended service and product.
I bought the saltfire st2. Although it wasn't in stock at time of purchase Julian and the team kept me informed when it was due and it was delivered on time and safely. A great fire and with the new removable baffle plate it makes it easier to clean and service. Great price (look out for the £'s off deals), Lovely effect and good quality build. very toasty. 5 star all round. Thank you
After much internet research I decided on the Saltfire 2 as I wanted a convector style fire, the information on Julian's web site gave me the confidence to have a go and fit it all myself. The stove,fitting kit and flue where all delivered when stated,it all fitted very easily even the flue ( lucky I live in a bungalow ) Very pleased with the amazing view of the flames from the large window
The stove is exactly what you would expect from saltfire ,- decent , smart looking stove with a large viewing window. Have to mention how good stove fitters are at communicating regarding the order . Really some of the best customer service Iv received.
I really wanted to give the Saltfire ST2 five stars and would have done so if the review was based on performance and value for money alone. We've had ours up and running for a couple of months now and it's been superb. It's proved to be really efficient, has a huge viewing window and throws out plenty of heat. Like a previous reviewer however, we have also found that the paint around the door handle brushed off really easily. Don't let this put you off buying the Saltfire, just make sure you don't use the glove supplied with the stove to open the door while the paint is still curing. The glove is too cumbersome and brushes on the door when you turn the handle to open/refuel the stove. Find an alternative glove and you should be fine. Other than that, I can't recommend the stove highly enough.
Well done Julian and co. I have just finished installing my lovely new Saltfire ST 2 woodburner and it works a treat. The scenario 2 chimney you supplied, fitted together brilliantly, ( and has just withstood some very high winds without a squeak ) I am so pleased with the performance. So now all we have to do is light her up and cosy down on the floor, amazing, nice. Mark N.
We bought this stove and can't recommend this website highly enough- delivery was straight forward and fuss free, with detailed (and funny!) instructions prior to delivery. The stove itself is gorgeous and looks much more expensive than it is- we shopped around for a while and this is the best value stove we found. Loved the video on the website of this stove, and all the extra advice that is easily found on the website Also. Looking forward to lots of cosy nights in front of the fire! Had a lot of comments already on how nice this fire looks. Thank you!
The original stove ordered was not in stock but not listed as that so after a couple of weeks with no correspondence from the company and the listed phone number not being answered, I had to chose a different one. After waiting in for 3 days the stove was finally delivered on a Saturday morning.
This is a very good quality well made product, good thick metal, excellent welding, nice paint finish. Works beautifully with great control of flame and nice big viewing window. only minor negative point would be the control knobs are a bit on the small side. 904 stainless flue is excellent quality and all flue components slotted together perfectly. glad i went for 905 flue liner, gives peace of mind for years to come. Fitted it all myself with help of manual. Not an easy job, prob took 30 - 40 hrs in total, lot of hard work but you get extra satisfaction when you are sat in front of it knowing you did it yourself. Great service good communication, everything arrived within 1 week. overall very pleased and would recommend highly.
lovely product,great website with all the information i needed to fit it myself.and sold by someone who cares.
Very straightforward buying process - once I'd placed the order I was called by Stovefitter's warehouse to arrange a day for delivery. Everything happened just when it was supposed to and it all went very smoothly. The stove itself is superb value for money - it's tidy, well put-together, surprisingly substantial and easy to light and control. You could easily pay twice the price and not get any better quality. Not much else to say: I can wholeheartedly recommend both the stove itself and Stovefitter's warehouse. 5* all round!
I couldn't rare this stove or this company any higher! The service we received from first phone call to delivery and after service was second to none! Julian and his team are fantastic it just shows British customer service can be as good as anywhere in the world when we get it right.
We ordered the ST2 and the full flu pack. The stove came with nothing to put together just ready to go and the flu pack came separately in a big box. The flu and chimney cowl are very robust and easy to fit. The stove (really heavy) stove pipe and register cover plate were also robust and look superb.
We've had a few burns now and we love it! We also bought the valiant v4 stove fan and the kindle cradle these are a must for any log burner!
Can't believe how easy the kindle cradle makes lighting the fire and the fan pushes all the hot air right out into the room, you can't hear it spinning it just sits at the back of the stove and does its magic! If you going to buy a wood burner don't look anywhere else first class guy well done!!!

stove (Saltfire St2) review
- heat mainly disipated through front door and top, not so much sides and not the back. I was really concerned about that as my builders opening is quite
small. I only have 6cm either side and 3cm of clearance at the back with the stove only protuding 5cm into the room. I though I would be obstructing the
heat convection significantly (wasn't possible to do it any other way due to structural size limitations). But as most of the heat is produced at the
front of ther stove I am much more releaxed about it now
- doesn't need nearly as much air from the room as my old open fire. The living room door actually stays shut ;-) (yes the open fire would pop it open -
it was like trying to pull the door close in an wind tunnel)
- better noise insulation than my old open fireplace. The road noise would travelk straight down the 9 inch chimney hole into the living room.
- stopping central heating generated heat excalting up the big unobstructed chimney flue to the outside
- stove is much cheaper than others
- goes through wood much quicker than I expected, I would say as quick as an open fire. Of course u can turn it down, but then u don't get the heat
- clearwash system ? really ? u have to have the heat at full blast for the glass to be cleanish. And if a log falls onto the glass from the inside - that half of the glass will turn proper black.
- makes a slight whistling sound through the 2nd intake when its fully open
- vent handles get really hot, especially the one for the secondary control. That is simply a design fault in my opinion. Who puts a vent handle made of metal only 1 cm long at the hottest part of the stove ? Well it does come with an oven glove - HINT.
- heat emission. This is my first stove but had an open fireplace before. After hearing stories about 10% efficiency of open fireplaces I was having a
dream of heating up my (admittedly large) room with a match stick cause it is 89% efficient (not quite of co...
great products, excellent prices and customer experience second to none.
Wish we had made this purchase earlier, truly awesome.
The service was outstanding, from ordering to delivery - highly recommended.
Recently self installed the Saltfire ST2 Mk2. Lovely looking stove that is well built with good quality workmanship and materials. Fitted it to a 5" dura flue liner and fitting pack from the website and it draws exceptionally.
The first few burns took a bit of trial and error but now burning well.
I would highly recommend both this stove and Julian's website.
Due to extra work in the room where stove will be fitted. I do not at this time have any useful comments to say except that, it looks good, the delivery was exactly as stated, the service of sales was good and caring and I can't wait to get this stove 'up and running'. I will gladly send a further review when this occurs. Many thanks Julian. John Imms. To
We ordered two Saltfire ST2 in light grey they were received quickly. Our Customer is very happy with stoves look very nice and great customer service received. Will be ordering again Thanks guys - Amy
