Most online sites have far too many stoves to choose from. They list every stove they can get their hands on. There are too many!
Surely they cannot all be the best? There must be plenty of mediocre performers amongst the hordes?
So let us narrow it down for you. What is the small pool that we at Stovefitter's would choose from?
Here are our top ten DEFRA approved wood burning stoves for 2021:
- Ekol Crystal 5 (cast iron, multi fuel)
- Ekol Clarity 5 (multi fuel)
- Hamlet Solution 5 (steel, multi fuel)
- Saltfire Peanut 5 Bignut (cast iron, multifuel)
- Firewire (steel, wood only)
- Ekol Applepie (steel, multi fuel small stove 4kW)
- Firewire Curve(steel, multi fuel)
- HETA Inspire 45 (steel, wood only)
- DG Aste 5 (steel, multi fuel via a kit if required)
- DG Ivar 5 (steel, multi fuel via a kit if required)
Further information on all of these Defra approved wood burning stoves further down this page.
We test a different stove every month during winter and give them all a good hard beating.
The stove I own is the DG Ivar 5, the best logburner on the market today as far as I am concerned (Julian Patrick, site owner and author Stovefitter's Manual).
