Very large glass, huge firebox, highest quality and easily outsmarting many other stoves in the £1k-£1.5k market. Single control. As of the time of writing The DG Ivar is the most controllable stove we have tested and possibly the finest stove on the market today.
Julian, owner of Stovefitter's and author of The Stovefitter's Manual, has an Ivar stove (as do both of his neighbours and the owner's of the local village pub who have two!)
Read more about the Ivar's level of control and why it is important on the page for the slightly smaller Ivar 5.
The Ivar 5 and 8 were designed in 2014 and launched at the Hearth and Home exhibition in Harrogate. They were an instant success for the Dutch company DG (Dik Guerts).
We particularly like the "one control does all" and the removeable door handle. If anything the Ivar 8 is even more aesthetically pleasing than the 5, having more of a landscape aspect. Read more about this stove on the Ivar 5 product page.
