8kW and 78% Efficiency

The Island II is an extremely well made, wonderful looking, medium-sized double door stove – typically Charnwood, with real physical presence, whether you choose the low or high leg or store stand options. It has a well thought out and quick and easy to use stay-cool door handle and locking mechanism – great, because you really won't want to linger any longer than you have to in front of its generous 8kW heat output (up to 11kW with a bigger fuel load). It takes whacking great logs up to 440mm (17") long, so if you're responsible for cutting your own then this will be a big time-saver. It has one simple push-pull control which will always deliver the perfect mix of pre-heated clean burn combustion air whether you're using wood or mineral fuel. Charnwood's renowned externally riddled converting grate can be very easily fitted if you really want to burn mineral fuels, although the Island II is so efficient at burning wood (which will always be cheaper) we can't see why you'd ever need this option. It also has external air capability with its optional manifold and can also be Defra Approved when the smoke reduction kit is fitted. Check out the 2" taller cooker top version (Island IICT), a handy choice if the Russians ever cut off the gas.

Bought the Island II in September and couldn't be more satisfied. It is a well built and highly attractive stove which is easy to use and keeps us pleasantly warm even when the outside temperatures are very low. A brilliant stove!
