This is our third woodburning stove and the Vidar Triple is certainly the most handsome of the three. It does however demand a little more attention than the other two. When is use, the large size and large windows give an appearance somewhat more akin to a conventional fire than a wood burner.
One of the features is the large glass area, although this does need to be kept clean to maintain the attractive appearance of the stove. Small areas of carbon staining have appeared in the bottom corners of the front glass which I have not been able to remove. The stove does look rather empty when not burning, but this can be solved by pre-laying logs ready for the next fire.
While the stove is easy to start up, it does require a little more attention than my other (smaller) stoves to maintain at a high enough operating temperature. If the temperature falls below the optimum range, the airflow becomes insufficient. You will often find a carbon coating of the glass in the morning as a result of inefficient combustion of the embers.
One of the reasons for buying a large stove was the ability to burn large logs (sometimes knotted wood is difficult to split). However, unless the temperature and hence airflow are maintained by the regular addition of smaller logs, there is a tendency for large logs to burn inefficiently.
