I like the look of that , are they expensive ?

More expensive than they used to be. About £2k. About 6 years ago, I bought one from German eBay from Eastern Germany and sent it over on a pallet. It was used and about £550.

I like it. Reminds me of a big v8!
How did you find it in practical, day to day use?

Very good. Long firebox meant that on the 11kw version we had, 45-48cm logs were the standard. The door latch has a wonderfully elegant closure mechanism and the convected air from pipes works pretty similarly to a bank of stove fans.

Sounds good, looks like a timeless piece of design. Going on the list for the house. Thanks for sharing!

They look incredibly striking in the right room. Much more interesting than the tedious square boxes that seem to dominate the market here. This is my daughter sat next to my uncle's Bullerjan in his lounge a couple of years ago:

I would agree they are certainly striking, and pretty good at getting heat out and about.  I did see one at a trade show many years ago but its always women that have the last word and they decide on how it looks,  and I cant see many on them liking how it looks.

The Burley stoves have those " heat exchange " pipes . They run accross the top , above the baffle pate from back to front and exit on the front face above the door . You just don't see them .

You are right. I sold my Bullerjan to a friend near Aviemore and his mum can't stand it! 😄

Does anyone have strong opinions either way on soapstone covered stoves?

I like the idea of all the thermal mass but not the look
