About the DG Ivar 5

I’ve had many woodburners over the years in various houses and without any doubt this is the best ever! Mr Powell (see reviews)

Our video, above, shows the Ivar 8 (slightly wider than the Ivar 5)

We appreciate that the Ivar is more of an initial outlay than many other stoves but, as stove lovers, we feel it is worth it. Your stove will be the focus of a room, the heart of the home on a cold winter evening - providing warmth and joy to those you love. The Ivar 5 is "Created in Holland" rather than "Made in China". When you unwrap it you will understand. When you light it you will understand. Some things are worth spending a little more on and we have yet to find a finer stove on the market.
 
Whereas many stoves have two or even three controls, the Ivar has just the one. It slides smoothly from left to right over a distance of exactly 192mm (about 172mm more than most other stoves). That 192mm of travel is a journey, a display of just what can be achieved when fire and Dutch design skills combine. Every mm of the journey is a joy - slide a little, then slide a little more: fire becomes art. Should you get to see the Ivar 5 in action - then you will understand...
 
One lever only: slide left to reduce heat and preserve logs, slide right to increase heat. The airwash, to keep the glass completely clear, is adjusted automatically. Simple. You are in control.
 
A challenge: take a trip to your local stove showroom and play with the controls on different stove brands. Some will have just 10 or 15mm of play, between "flames almost out" and "a fully roaring fire" and it is hard to set the perfect temperature, especially when wearing thick fireproof mitten. Controls may also be "scratchy" - an unsatisfying metal on metal experience.
The Ivar 5 has a cast iron door and a steel body. The glass is infrared Chalcogenide which apparently is a very good thing (something to do with transmitting heat and not scratching when being cleaned).
 
Launched 2014 the Ivar 5 swiftly rose to become one of the top three sellers for Stovefitter's - and deservedly so. The excellent sales happened despite stiff competition from the sub £500 models.
 
Julian, (author of The Stove Fitter's Manual) has installed the 5kW Ivar in his Cornish cottage renovation (so ask him if you speak to him ;-). His immediate neighbour was so impressed that he chose the 8kW Ivar (on a log store) and the neighbour the other side also fitted the DG Ivar 5. So three in a row! No stopping word of mouth now - the owners of the village hotel & pub (Marazion Hotel, Cornwall) visited and were also impressed - they removed their recently installed inset stove (not enough heat) and fitted an Ivar 5, followed swiftly by an Ivar 8 in the adjoining Cutty Sark Restaurant. They are now happy as hotel owners in a hotel.
 
The Ivar is a modern, premium steel stove with a humongous viewing glass and firebox. For those desiring a modern appliance that can pump out 3-7.5kW if required, we recommend the Ivar 5. We like the name as well. Ivar is Nordic and sounds cool. Perhaps if I have a kid, I'll call it Ivar. What? I've left it too late? I'm only 54. Okay, a dog then.
 
The DG Ivar stove has a distance to combustibles (rear of the appliance) of 400mm but adding a heat shield directly to the back reduces this to 150mm. The Ivar 5 requires a full constructional hearth (choose the Ivar 5 HIGH if you only have a 12mm hearth situation).

Log store

Need somewhere to store those logs? Choose the "Ivar 5 Log Store" version of this stove. The log store version can, if the stove is outside of a fireplace recess, be sited on a hearth with a thickness of just 12mm.

High legs

The "Ivar 5 High Leg" has slightly longer legs than the standard Ivar 5 ensuring that, if the stove is outside of a fireplace recess, the stove can be sited on a hearth with a thickness of just 12mm.

Ecodesign

This stove is certified as Ecodesign compliant (has passed the new and stringent 2022 regulations).

Defra-approved

This stove can burn wood in a Smoke Control Area (most towns and cities are Smoke Control Areas).

Julian's thoughts

I have this stove and consider it the finest stove I have ever used.

DG Ivar 5 review by Stovefitter's

Note from Julian: Because I sing their praises I get asked if I have any affiliation with DG. I do not. I spotted their stoves in 2014 at the Hearth and Home Show, Harrogate, and have been a dealer ever since. I have no relationship with DG aside from retailing their stoves and get no preferential treatment or trade discounts.

Specifications & Dimensions

Output & fuel

Wood only (multifuel with kit).
Nominal 5kW.
Max. 7.55kW

This stove will run happily at 2-7.55kW depending on fuel load. Note that running the stove at a higher fuel level than that specified in the manufacturer's manual may cause degradation of stove innards (firebricks, baffle etc.) although these are usually replaceable.

This stove can burn wood without any modification. Add a multifuel-kit to burn wood or smokeless fuel/coal (easy 5-minute fit).

Air vent advice here

Body and door

Steel stove (5-year body guarantee) with cast-iron 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 thickness: minimum 125mm non-combustible material (can include floor thickness).

The Ivar 5 High and Log store versions can, if outside of a fireplace recess, be sited on a 12mm thick hearth. Note that the standard leg Ivar 5 must have a full 125mm thickness hearth in all situations.

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.
