"I just had to let you know how warm and happy we are.
We are absolutely thrilled with our fire. It's so much more than we expected, great heat and so user friendly!!!
You guys are very clever, the design is so efficient.
Our house is a 1920's bungalow and it has never been so toasty.
Please pass on our praise to your team."

"I have owned and operated my Pyroclassic IV woodburner for over 2 years, using it to heat the entire house, to cook on plus keep a kettle boiling and to heat the hot water cylinder through the wetback.
It is a very fine piece of equipment and fulfills all these functions superbly.
I am most impressed by the Pyroclassic’s easy starting and by its heat storage capabilities.
One large-ish log keeps it going overnight and, even if the log itself is gone by morning, the stove still emanates warmth and has embers ready to rekindle.
The added bonus I wasn’t entirely expecting – given that the woodstove operates at high temperature – is its economical consumption rate.
Owner’s of other types are impressed by (and envious of) how little wood it uses and how little is needed to keep it ticking over.
I believe I have now done just about every type of cooking on my Pyroclassic and, once accustomed to the stove top oven, all forms of cooking can be accomplished very well. I bake bread on it regularly, about 3 times a week during winter. It bakes and roasts very well, and, once I acquired a cast-iron frypan, fries quite adequately too.
Boiling in pots is never a problem.
I would also like to pass on that the builder who installed my Pyroclassic stated quite clearly to me that the instructions provided were the best instructions for anything he had ever bought, used, built, installed or seen, bar none.
When my building project started to go over budget I contemplated canceling my order for a Pyroclassic – despite it being cheaper than the stove originally spec’d – in favour of a very cheap model. I cannot say how happy I am that I did not do that.
The Pyroclassic IV is among the 2 or 3 best purchases I made in the entire building of my house."

"Our certified builder doing the installation, was impressed with the quality of the flue components & how easily the whole fireplace fits together.
This is a convection heater and heat-store so should not be expected to deliver instant warmth, its gameplan is to build up its own heat first, over about 30 minutes from cold, which it does very well.
Once hot it transfers its heat primarily from the top, the front & the lowest stage of the flue.
One soon appreciates that it is the massive cylindrical firebox which brings all this about. \
The turboslide is brilliant at igniting fresh wood after the fire has burnt down and having a stash of dry pine / casuarina needles & twigs on hand, guarantees that the fire can be restarted with ease on the morning after the night before.
When the fresh wood load is not excessive, there is very little smoke outside, yet plenty of warmth inside.
There is no ashtray & very little ash as this fire burns just about everything.
Having the raised hearth is a must, firstly this saves you from possibly working on your knees & secondly the wood is stored conveniently out of the way, under the fire.
Finally, what a treat to have a narrow unobtrusive stainless flue instead of an imposing wide black one.
The possibility of colour-co-ordinating the fireplace panels with the surrounding décor either now or at some future time when the décor may change is great.
All in all, Pyroclassic has been one of the best home appliances we have had."
