Bottom line: This freestanding woodburner produced 8 kW when NES tested. It has a predominantly radiant and convective heating mode and is NES (clean-air) approved for urban areas. It has very good emissions performance (above average for a NES compliant woodburner) and very good efficiency (above average for a NES compliant woodburner).

Testing for emissions, efficiency and power output using AS/NZS 4012/4013 was carried out by an independent lab in New Zealand.
We analyse data from National Environmental Standards (NES) testing to generate scores out of 10 for emissions and efficiency, along with an overall score. This gives us a clear picture of the performance, features and specifications for almost every model on the market.
Where available, we've also included the NZHHA output results. These results reflect the absolute maximum heat output you could achieve in your home.
Price is from the manufacturers’ survey and is without a flue kit unless stated otherwise.

Really great looking heater, burns so efficiently I haven't had to clean the flue in four years!!! (dry wood is a must) We chose it as the fire box is longer than most allowing the logs to go in end on. This allows the air to travel along the logs to the rear of the heater before returning to the front, giving better circulation of internal heat, therefore better extraction of heat. Love it.
As with any compliant heater, there is a skill in getting them to stay in overnight, although this is almost impossible unless you refuel during the wee small hours at least once.
Also they are all ash messy. I made a slim trough that sits under the door lip and catches most of the ash and any red hot bits that may fall out when reloading. My wife loves it. Don't know why no one makes them as part of the heater.
Yes, I recommend this product.
