About the Saltfire ST1 Vision

ST1

A steel stove with a contemporary look that is excellent value for money.

"This is a really nice stove and the first we have purchased in about 15 years. We had a cast iron Dovre 250 and the Saltfire is steel and thus much lighter. Installation is easy to an existing flue - just slots in and then you add fire cement or resin. No need for a collar. Stovefitter's Warehouse were very helpful with this purchase when I contacted them to ask about sweeping through - the online manuals from Saltfire said that you could not, but you can (which is a relief as we did not want to put a hatch in the flue). The fire performs very well, the ash almost burns to nothing. We have not needed to empty it of ash since we had it. Lights easily and gets nice and hot. A stove thermometer puts it in the correct operating range. The glass stays reasonably clean and you get a lovely view of the flames. My only negative is that the door handle is awkward to close - we turn it the wrong way frequently, but maybe that is because the Dovre was very easy. For the cost of this, you cannot go wrong and its Defra approved." Review by A Wilcox

Julian's thoughts

One of the first brands of stoves I sold, way back in 2013 in my small shop "The Wood Stove Hut". I have met the owners (Dorset based) many times and find them to extremely knowledgeable and professional. You cannot go wrong with Ekol, or their other brand, Saltfire.

No, this stove cannot be fitted with an external air kit. Usually this option is not relevant unless an air vent is required and the property owners are aiming for an airtight space.

Air vent advice here

Body and door

Steel stove (3-year body guarantee) with steel door.

What to buy steel or cast-iron? Do not overthink. Steel heats fast. Cast-iron takes a little longer but retains heat longer as fire dies.

Hearth

This stove can, if sited outside of a fireplace recess, be sited on a 12mm thick hearth.

If in a fireplace recess, a full 125mm thickness constructional hearth is required. This will usually be in place as part of the recess design.

Hearth regulation advice here

Distance to combustibles SIDE: 400mm
Distance to combustibles REAR: 500mm

To non-combustibles there are no hard rules but, around the stove, a 50mm minimum air gap is recommended to brick/stone. This to be increased to 100mm for rendered or boarded surfaces. Prior to purchasing any stove download the installation manual to check that manufacturers do not have any additional requirements.

WHY YOU NEED OUR Exceptional guarantee (6-months even if stove used)

What if I get a lemon? What if I'm unhappy when I unwrap it? What if it does not agree with my chimney?
 
Chimney and stove not agreeing with each other? Although rare it really does happen and it is usually cured by swapping the stove for another. Why? Who knows? We have had a few stoves that "whistled". When we swapped the stove the problem stopped but when we put the stoves on a different chimney they do not whistle. We have had a few stoves that let smoke into the room when refuelling - swap the stove and the problem is cured. Test the stove on a different chimney and all is well.
 
Most retailers will not replace or refund if it is a problem with the chimney. You will have to sell your stove yourself (at a great loss as stove second-hand value is very poor) and purchase another.
 
If your stove's retail price is under £1500: Should you not be happy with your stove for any reason, within the first three months from purchase, we will arrange to have the stove collected from your premises (we pay first £48 delivery collection cost, covers most UK postcodes, you pay additional in rare situation cost rises above £48 for any reason). Stove installed and has been used? No worry. We will pay you up to £100 to have it removed by a Hetas registered installer.
 
As soon as the stove is back with us we will provide a FULL REFUND of the cost of the stove. We will even post you a pallet and straps as required (you will need to prepare it ready for our driver). This exceptional guarantee lasts for a full three months from date of delivery EVEN IF THE STOVE IS USED as long as normal wear and tear.
 
Between three and six months, we offer exactly the same but without the £100 stove-removal offer.
 
On this, you have my word.
