A 5kw traditional-looking cast-iron stove that is tremendous value for money (£499 as of December 2014). Heavy and well-built. Ekol great company to deal with (excellent customer service). Must have a soot door in the vitreous pipe above the stove.
Fantastic stove, looks great in my Inglenook. Mega heavy, solid cast iron construction. 3 controls plus riddler. Nothing is going to break or fall off here as all the controls and handle are chunky and very robust. You will not be disappointed! Amazing heat output from very little fuel. Excellent service & communication from both Stovefitters & Ekol stoves. Don't bother shopping anywhere else as you will not get the same for less, and you will not get the wealth of information provided on Stovefitters website OR the back up service! Very impressed also with the superior quality of all the materials, even down to the screws! I am now looking forward to my next purchase from Stovefitters and opening up my other fireplace, the degree of detailed information on the website and backup from Julian and Arran give you the confidence to go for it! Well done guys!
We purchased this Stove a month ago and self-installed it. We nearly went for a cheaper alternative and couldn't be happier we didn't. It was a breeze to install and is a seriously solid, quality piece of kit (with the weight to prove it!!), that also happens to be great looking. The stove starts easily, bit of newspaper and the job's done, and with 3 vent settings (that actually work) it's super easy to keep the thing going nicely without chewing through too much wood. Warms up our medium sized lounge and adjoining kitchen surprisingly well for a 5kw stove. Highly recommend!
Bought stove, fitting pack and liner from Stove Fitters and any questions I had were either answered from the website or from a simple call.
Everything ordered came as expected plus more with delivery being quick and more importantly on time (didn't have to wait in the house all day for a delivery to turn up at unlike most couriers!)
Definitely recommended and would definitely use again!
Beautiful stove, excellent quality and very well made. Great service from this website and the 'how to' guides have been invaluable as a self installer. I would highly recommend both the product, stove fitters warehouse and stove fitters manual. Thanks!
This is a delightful stove. It's stylish, excellent quality and well finished. The large viewing glass is brilliant and gives this small wood burner the feel of a bigger stove.
We love our Ekol Crystal Stove, great value, and the help and advice from Julian was invaluable, we went for the better quality grade flue, and with the £150 voucher code this was really doable... Thanks Guys.....
We've been using the stove for around 3 weeks and are very pleased. Solid build, good control with the vents and gives off plenty of heat.
The Ekol Crystal 5 has been installed 2 weeks now and has been fired every night since, gradually building the fires up in line with the instructions-which are easy enough to follow. The stove seems to be well made and all the controls seem solid and not overly complicated so should last well. The heat is unbelievable, from just one medium sized log up to an hours burn can be achieved and have you opening the room door to let some heat out!! I am also really pleased with how easy it is to light the stove, only ever taking 1 match to start with newspaper and a bit of kindling. I can pretty much light it and sit back and enjoy straight away, no faffing. Great. I am very happy with the stove but if I had to criticise I would say that the air wash on the glass door works very well for the top two-thirds of the glass but starts to become less effective and there are some deposits on the bottom third of the glass. However, as this is level with the grate it is not really noticed and I have simply wiped off with some damp newspaper before firing the next night.The firebox is not as wide as other stoves, but for the given width it is to be expected, yet it is deeper than many. All in all very happy with the stove and am looking at unblocking the other chimney breast in the house so I can have another!
I contacted my local log burner installer who recommended the ekol crystal 5 + free £150 flue voucher for the opening of my chimney. After arranging a fitting date I contacted stovefitters warehouse and 24 hours later my stove was delivered then within 3 days it was fitted and I have the stove happily burning away for 2 weeks now. I am really pleased and so are my animals 2 dogs and 4 cats... lol
Good stove, kicks out good heat. Great customer service.
Ordered the Stove on Sunday, came home from work on Wednesday and as promised there it was, wrapped and on a pallet. It took 2 of us to carry it in which shows how good the stove is as its only small. All in all the website, delivery and product is brilliant. Well done Julian and team.
The Ekol Crystal 5 is perfect for our small opening but gives off plenty of heat and the 3 air intakes give plenty of control. We love the style of it, being a good mix of traditional and contemporary - perfect for our house. Was despatched and delivered quickly.
Excellent Service. Online order easy. Delivery on time as expected and advanced call before delivery.
After searching through many websites we finally settled on the Ekol range. We chose the Crystal Ekol 5 due to its classic look and large viewing window in door. Easy to lite. Very clean. Really looking forward to winter for the first time.
Very impressed with the build quality,price but also with the great service we received.
ive recently purchased this stove after much research. The stove is well made is easy to operate and looks good too!
It pumps out a phenomenal heat for a 5 kW stove. I fitted it myself with ease with the accessories I purchased from the SFW.
I would recommend this stove if you are looking for a good quality reasonably priced option
Really good stove. Throws out so much heat. Looks lovely too. Very solid and heavy.
