Top 5 cylindrical / oval stoves.

Updated: May 15

Seeing the flames of a fire is one of the most important aspects when choosing your wood burning stove, we get asked all the time, I want to see the ones with the biggest window. I love the look of a flame licking its way around a piece of wood and the light that can be thrown into the room from a real flame, so who wouldn’t want to see as much of the fire as possible.

Wood burning stoves came in many shapes, sizes, colours oh… and of course there are the various outputs that you need to consider and ensure it is right for your room.

Here is my top 5 list of contemporary cylindrical / oval wood burners.

5.   Nordpeis Uno 


The Nordpeis Uno features a log store base with easy side access, the uniquely styled Uno 2 wood burning stove is a highly efficient model. With a heat output of 4kW, this wood burning stove will not only give you a convenient log store, the raised firebox and side windows will also provide you with a fuller view of the flames.

4. Rais Rina Classic

Rais Rina Classic

This beautiful and functional stove has an elegant, rounded front, oblique sides and does not take a lot of space. Rina has a large glass door, and the fire looks stunning through the big pane. With a heat out put of 4kW and its raised firebox the view of the flames is at the perfect height.

3. Contura 850


Contura 850 has taken its inspiration from the famous superellipse. The shape makes this stove compact and attractive, it is only 36 cm deep and 46 cm wide making it very easy to position, even in small spaces and with a 4kW out put this is great for most smaller living spaces. A real shining star!

2. Contura 510 Style


The Contura 510 Style stove is one of our best sellers and is a very special stove. With an out put range of 3kW – 7kW makes it a great choice for rooms that open up into larger spaces.  The large glass door spreads the light and heat around the room.

1. Rais Viva 120

This circular stove can hardly get more simple and minimalist. Completely smooth surface and a large glass door. There are numerous installation possibilities and also available with a side glass. This elegant contemporary stove will not just look great in the room, It will complete it. Offering a real wow factor with uninterrupted cylinder and clean lines and a raised firebox the view of the flames is mesmerising.

To see this stove in the flesh and a live with a box full of flames, visit our showroom in Wimborne, Dorset.
