We've asked thousands of multi-fuel and wood-burning stove owners what they think of stoves from big brands, including Woodwarm.
If you need to buy a wood-burning stove, make sure it's from a good brand.
The stove manufacturers that appear in first and second place in our table got a customer score of 91% and 85% respectively. Our customer score comes from a combination of asking stove owners how satisfied they are with a brand and whether they would recommend it.
Our worst-scoring brands sit at the bottom of the table with a customer score of 75%. That's still not bad, but there are better alternatives available.
The table below shows logged-in members how stove owners rated Woodwarm for quality and finish, durability, ease of using and controlling, ease of cleaning and value for money.

You can flick through the image gallery below to see a selection of the wood-burning stoves (also called log burners and wood burners) and multi-fuel stoves available from Woodwarm.
Woodwarm has four main ranges of wood-burning and multi-fuel stoves. Each includes a variety of colours and sizes (some are particularly slender, like the one pictured below). It also has inset stoves that can be built into a wall or fireplace. Others come with a canopy or hood for a country look.
Log burners and multi-fuel stoves: Woodwarm sells a number of multi-fuel stoves and has two dedicated log burner ranges.
All of Woodwarm's multi-fuel stoves have a riddling grate that it says allows a bed of ash to form, meaning that wood, which needs air from above, can burn as efficiently as other fuels, such as coal, which need air from below.
Because fuels burn differently, if you're planning on only burning wood, you might want to consider getting a dedicated log burner rather than a multi-fuel stove. You can find out more in our comparison of .
Other types of stove: Woodwarm also makes LPG and gas stoves, which look similar to its range of Phoenix stoves. Our ratings are only for its multi-fuel and wood-burning stoves.

From January 2022 all stoves legally available for sale will meet more stringent criteria regarding energy efficiency and emission levels. During the transition period they were labelled Eco-Design Ready.
