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.

Before you buy, make sure you read our guide to wood-burning stoves and pollution.

Woodwarm wood burners and multi-fuel stoves

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 wood-burning vs multi-fuel stoves.

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. 

Before you buy a wood-burning stove, check out our guides to gas stoves and electric stoves to see if one of those might be more suitable. 

Stove wattages: Around 4kW to a massive 20kW. 

Eco-Design and Defra-exempt stoves: Woodwarm's Foxfire stoves and a number of stoves in its Phoenix range are also suitable for smoke control zones. 

If you live in a smoke control area, you will need to either burn only smokeless fuel or, if you want to burn wood, buy a Defra-exempt stove (you can check this on the Defra website).

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.

Some of Woodwarm's other stoves have high energy efficiency levels of around 80%, while others are lower at around 70%.

Find out more about Defra-exempt and Eco-Design Ready stoves, as well as the effects of stoves on pollution by reading our guide to stoves and pollution.

Stove features: Features of Woodwarm stoves include:

  • cool-touch handles
  • brass fittings

Find out what features stove owners really value and whether they're worth spending money on, by visiting our guide to how to buy a wood-burning stove.

Stove accessories, fuel storage and fuel: Woodwarm doesn't sell any stove accessories or fuel, but it does sell a few wood baskets and stands. 

Where to buy Woodwarm stoves: You can buy Woodwarm stoves from a number of dealers across the UK.

After-sales care and spares: Woodwarm sells spares directly to customers, or you can buy these through dealers. It offers a 10-year guarantee if you register your stove on the Woodwarm website.

Registering any safety appliance with the manufacturer is also useful if there is ever a recall or issue identified with the model. 

You may need to service the appliance yearly for the warranty to be valid, which is something we would recommend doing anyway. Visit our guide to using a stove for more information.
