Here's what Stovax say about the Dovre range:
"Cast iron has many advantages – durability, better heat retention and longevity, as well as the ability to be crafted into a huge variety of shapes and textures, giving aesthetic beauty and immediate appeal whether your interior style is traditional or contemporary. Over the decades, Dovre's product range has been continuously developed and refined. Today, its woodburning and multi-fuel stoves offer advanced cleanburn technology for improved combustion efficiency and care for the environment.
Its airwash systems help keep the door glass clean, whilst there are also many models fuelled with the convenience of gas or electricity. Whatever your choice - wood, multi-fuel, gas or electric - your Dovre stove or fireplace will be beautifully reliable and built to the uncompromising standards you would expect from our Scandinavian heritage. Dovre stoves and fires are designed to burn wood and smokeless fuels and have been independently tested to exacting standards for safety, heating efficiency and emissions.
The 250, 225, 525, 500, 700 and Vintage models have also been approved for the burning of wood in Smoke Control areas.
Wood is the better fuel in environmental terms being carbon neutral, as the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is approximately the same as that absorbed by the tree during growth. It is also a renewable resource, particularly when derived from plantations and cultivated woodland. For optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%.
This will not only give up to twice the output of freshly felled timber but help avoid a build up of tar in your flue. Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better still, as they will have around twice the calorific value of softwoods, of equivalent weight.
Solid fuels – anthracite and manufactured smokeless fuels can be burnt on multi-fuel models which feature a fixed or riddling grate. Please note, however, that bituminous coal or petroleum based fuels must never be used on your stove".
