5kW and 77.9% Efficiency

It seems impossible these days to find a double-door 5kW stove that doesn't look like it's caught in some kind of Victorian time-warp. However, with its Island range Charnwood have succeeded in creating stoves with two doors which are bang up to date with external air capability, pre-heated clean burn technology, including airwash, all packaged in an attractive contemporary design –  but still stylishly British, so that they'll look great in just about any kind of setting. And unlike a lot of other double door stoves they've got their door locking mechanism just right too – it's easy to use the cool-to-touch handle with just one hand. Compare it with some of the other double door handles! You have three different stove heights to choose from, with low or high leg and store stand options. The Island I also has one simple user-friendly push-pull air control (the Quattroflow®) and can be Defra Approved when the optional smoke reduction kit is fitted.

We never had a stove before and to be honest, I wasn't sure how we will get used to it. We decided for the Island I and we were very pleasantly surprised. It is very easy to light, operate and clean. I only wish we got it earlier.
