Which Wood Stove?
Prostove is completely independent from any stove manufacturer, so our views are completely unbiased and the advice we give is brutally honest, there is no written rule which is the best Stove for you as all situations are different and we will recommend three of four manufacturers which will suit you, and then its down to your personal choice which stove you like the look of.
Wood is Carbon Neutral in its energy footprint. Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow and is released when they burn, of which in turn is absorbed again by younger growing trees. Because of this, wood-burning is Carbon Neutral !!
These are our Top current favourite stoves
This list is from feedback we get from our customers and engineers of which Stoves install well, operate well and are trouble free:
1. Dik Geurts Stoves.
After nearly 9 years as our best seller The Dru 44 has been knocked of the top by the Dik Geurts Ivar 5 Low RRP £1013+. ( Call us for Competitive prices)
It Ticks every box, 5 kw, Defra approved, and looks great with a massive screen. The multifuel kit is and extra £210. We think The Dik Geurts stoves are top end stoves but medium ranged in price, which is why they are so popular. Prostove are not alone in thinking this is the BEST 5kw Stove on the market today, and it really is!!!

The Dru 44 Multi fuel stove is a perfect cross between contemporary and traditional stove. Although it has been knocked of the No 1 spot by the Ivar 5 low, it’s still a great little stove. I still think the Dru 64 has it all, giving a 9kw rating with beautiful lines, in the last 6 months Dru 44 have sold very well, but as a 5kw stove you would expect to sell more than the Dru 64 9kw stove. The last few Dru 64 installations have gone into Cottages that don’t have modern insulation, hence always cold and hard to heat up, this 64 does this so well, its side loading door is so useful. All that is needed is a separate air source, not a problem.
Dru stoves are very reliable, have a loyal following, solidly made from cast iron and you really do get a lot of cast iron for your money. It has the right balance of what is required and perfect for the j reg regulations, We think the style has the perfect balance between contemporary and modern looks. They are certified to stand on a 12mm Hearth plate, the Dru 44 is 5kw nominal output, meaning a separate air source is not compulsory. Dru Stoves are built to last and built to burn: use the right wood and you should be able to run this stove 24 hours a day without a problem.
We a massive fans of Dru stoves, they give a great back up service, and understandably are one of our favorites.

5. Salamander Hobbit.
The Salamander Hobbit has gone from 11 to 5 on our charts, mainly because the are the most characterful small stove on the market and brilliantly made, One fault they have is, if they go into a small fire place, a height of 150mm is required above the stove to access the secondary air source lever at the back, if not we make a lever rod to access the control lever itself. Salamander is a great Company with a 1st class back up service. If you want a small stove these are one of the best smallest of stoves we know about!!

We still supply them with good discounts, The Pioneer 400p is our Clearview favourite.

They are constantly upgrading there range, recently they have recently launced the ST-X range, and these tick every box, apart from a woodstore!!, but I am sure thats on its way. They are Defra approved, so well made, they can use a 125mm liner and stand on a 12mm Hearth. Looks wise there are Top draw.

9. Aga Stoves
The Aga name speaks for itself, the Aga range are all brilliantly made stoves, we really like 3 models for their looks, we dont think Aga market these models well enough. The Lawley is so beautiful it should be flying of the shelves. The Wenlock and the Ludlow both come in smoke exempt versions and give out plenty of heat. The Ludlow is one of the best looking small stoves on the market in our opinion, ….Brilliant feedback from customers!!
The Little Wenlock Classic
Esse have been making stoves since 1854 with a comprehensive range of traditional, freestanding and insert stoves. Esse ranges are equally well known and are regarded as some of the best solid fuel cookers on the market today. We love the big glass effect. The Ironheart woodstove range cooker is awesome…best Range cooker on the market by miles….you get what you pay for……..quality!!
The Esse Ironheart……A Masterpiece!!!
Jotul Stoves (Jotul stoves have never been cheap but have always been known for their high quality, good looks and very efficient wood burning) Slightly dated in design but they do work well………..Well I apologise for the slightly dated comments, look what Jotul have added to their range, they now have the looks and style, and with the Jotul name sales in Jotuls stoves will increase!!
