Bottom line: This ultra-low emission freestanding woodburner is approved for use in clean-air zones (such as some parts of Canterbury and Nelson) where other burners are prohibited. It produced 15.1 kW when NES tested. It has a predominantly radiant and convective heating mode and is NES (clean-air) approved for urban areas. It has excellent emissions performance (significantly above average for a NES compliant woodburner) and excellent efficiency (significantly above average for a NES compliant woodburner).

(No obvious bad points.)
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.

NOTHING, worst fire we've ever had, hopeless getting up to a cold home in the morning, unless u want to be up every 2 hours adding more wood, uses more wood as unable to close down, at times we get a room full of smoke as it blows out from everywhere, all other fires we've had r far superior to this.
Every time it's a bit windy, flue sounds like a train coming through the house, at times get a boom & out comes smoke from everywhere, lose any heat gained having to open house up to get rid of the smoke, bloody joke
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
