This is not the style of stove that I would normally go for, but I wanted a 5 inch liner and large firebox. I've already grown to like the way it looks in the few weeks it’s been installed. After having a Morso Squirrel in my previous house, the window in the Saltfire looks huge and gives a good view of the fire. The air intakes provide a lot of control over the combustion rate. The air wash works fairly well but the glass still needs an occasional wipe down, and the griddle can be a bit sticky but it otherwise works very well. I’ve found it belches a very small amount of smoke when opened, but I might just need to do this more slowly. It’s not really an issue for me. Overall I’m very pleased and it came at a good price from Stove Fitters. Thanks!

Great Stove Saltfire XT S5
We are so happy with the saltfire stove. It was easy to season with a few small fires and we didn’t find the smell too bad either. It’s easy to light and the air supplies work very well. It’s so hot we can not keep the door closed. It is a good value stove that is solid and well built. We are looking forward to many years of lovely fires in our Saltfire XT S5. Good customer service from Stovefitters, thank you!

Can't go wrong
Working at Stovefitter's I've seen a fair few stoves on test and heard quite a few reviews of different stoves. I went with the ST-X5 as I was bound by budget and wanted a good stove that would really give me some heat in a very drafty house! With a decent firebox the ST-X5 certainly delivers. Simple controls, well made fire and great viewing window, it's amazing value.

Every bit as good as it's little brother
Having recently bought and installed the smaller ST-X4 which we were delighted with, we figured that the larger ST-X5 would be suitable for our conservatory. We have bnot been disappointed, it looks great and performs wonderfully. Easy to light and easy to control. A perfect addition to our home.

I ordered the ST-X5 and received it in a few days as promised. Very straight forward installation as it replaced a similar size stove. After the first few small fires to burn the paint in ( do this during the day with the windows open as it is a nasty smell that will give you a headache) the fire is burning well and seems controllable. My only complaint is that one of the slide controls for the air is very stiff to move in and out. Otherwise, great solid build quality and fantastic advise and service from Stovefitters, would use again without a doubt.

Had the stove fitted three days ago. Easy to use. Very quick to light and able to adjust the burn rate of the logs. As a multi fuel have not as yet used coal but am sure it will be just as efficient.

Saltfire srx5 stove
Just bought and installed this stove thru Stovefitters.
Overall I am very impressed with and Stovefitters service.
Pros -looks good, feels well made and is structurally simple. Best of all is the controllability of the fire and it does have a very large window.
Cons- well be very, very careful not to touch the paint finish during the live firing curing process as it marks easily and cannot be reversed. This may be common to all modern stoves.
Also make sure you can control the flue draught easily, say with a damper if you have a strong pull on the flue as overfiring might damage the baffle plate.
Altogether a good efficient stove.

I have had the Saltfire X5 installed for four weeks now, its great value for money and a very efficient stove, lots of stoves to chose from these days, but this one ticked all my boxes, the controls are obvious and easy to use, and the large glass is kept clean with the clean burn system, very impressive.
The fitting pack contained all the items needed to fit the stove and were of good quality, along with the information received made for a smooth installation.

There is a lot of choice in the 5kW multifuel stoves market. Glad I went with the Salfire ST-X5.
First of all it is DEFRA approved. It is compact but not small. What I like most about the ST-X5 is the large glass panel and the relatively narrow depth. It fits snugly into my modest 345mm deep recess.
The overall simplistic design and sleek line looks great and it is simple to operate. It looks real quality.
Delighted I purchased it and great value. Also, very helpful Salfire technical staff - I phoned them twice and they could not be more helpful or tuned in.

Duraflue 904L Chimney liner and Duraflue Stainless Cowl
I ordered all the bits from Stove Fitters including the liner and cowl. They all seem very good quality and the fit of the flue adapted, liner, vitreous pipe and 30 degree elbow were outstanding. The cowl looks very smart and the useful items were, er, very useful. Building control were round on Wednesday and commented that it was one of the best installs they've seen with the most comprehensive paperwork! Glad I saved £1300 by doing it myself.

Saltfire ST-X 5
Purchased this stove and self installed using Julian's website as guidance. I am only an average DIY'er but the instructions on the website plus the telephone advice made it easy. We are chuffed with the stove itself. It has made the house a real home

We ordered a saltfire stove from the Stove Fitters Warehouse. We found them to be very professional and although we have not used our stove yet it arrived on time and very well packaged. We would definitely use this company again

Very pleased with service from Stove Fitters. Order was originally to arrive after Christmas as all the stock was sold out but they managed to get it to me early. Now fitted and looking great. ST X5 is very solidly built - 90kg of steel and cast iron. Huge fire box and window. Cast iron door retains heat well.
Good service, stove and price.

Very impressed with my new multi fuel burner. Seems to be very efficient. Warms the whole house and wood lasts a long time. Very happy with my decision. The stove arrived with a few paint problems but this issue was rectified by Arran and Julian very quickly and professionally. When I buy my next stove I will come straight to Stove fitters.

Great service and Stove
We had great advice from Julian at every step of the order. The stove and accessories came quickly and were easier to fit than I originally thought. We literally saved over a £1000 by fitting it ourselves

Saltfire ST-X5 + liner from the best merchant there is!
Fantastic, kind service from both Julian and Arran, endless patience when asking about installation details, GREAT stove, that looks and performs great - I could not ask for more! The liner and cowl were of superior quality indeed. The stove has one of the biggest viewing glass and fire box in its class and price range. Even if I tried, I could not pick up on a single issue. Well done Julian and the Team!

Amazing value for a very solid stove
The Saltfire St-X5 is shaping up to be one of our best selling stoves of the future. The ST-X range stands out for the large firebox sizing and the weight of the stove (long-lasting). They remind me of Morso Stoves - but at a price that will not break the bank.

Saltfire st 5
Stove glass cracked when first lit. Seller not interested and claimed it must have been accidentally struck. Can assure you it wasn't. Stove manufacturer not interested either. Had to pay 60 pounds for replacement glass. No contact from delivery firm until driver phoned when he was outside my home with the stove, luckily I was in. Don't want your moisture meter.
I spoke with you myself (Julian). Stove manufacturers provide comprehensive guarantees, usually between 3 and 10 years. No stove manufacturer I know of guarantees the glass as these are expensive and can be damaged for many different reasons (just like a car windscreen - one cannot get the manufacturer to replace it free of charge). When you called me I attempted to explain the manufacturer's guarantee. I did not get very far. I would, had you of allowed me to, proceeded to explain what we as a company might be able to do to help. However I was not able to move the conversation forward due to your 'anger' at the manufacturer's position and you vented this anger in a way that I felt was not appropriate.
