Hunter Herald 6 Gas Stove Review

The Herald 6 Gas is one of only a few gas stoves on the market that can operate with the doors open, with nothing to obstruct the view of the fire; this stove looks even more realistic. (Although the doors do open there remains a glass panel at the front of the fire which is required to retain the efficiency of the stove). The Herald 6 Gas is suitable for installation to a standard solid fuel Class 1 flue and all more modern Class 2 flue types. Depending on the situation, the Herald 6 Gas stove may be either rear flued or flued from the top of the stove.

    A couple of the lower options don’t apply to this model as it is connected up to mains gas.

    The stove throws off a great amount of heat and this is controlled very easily – it is more than adequate for my very cold large living area.

    Where the appliance does fall down is that you have to get on your hands and knees to ignite the fire and at times, it is extremely difficult to light, failing quite often which means I have to go away and leave it for 5 minutes before coming back and trying again.

    There is an optional remote to aid lighting this fire which I regret not buying – this would no doubt save me having to get down on my hands and knees to locate the ignition beneath the fire and I presume it would also be more reliable at lighting the unit.

    If the remote is still available and I can purchase it to work with my fire, then I’d definately go down that route as all the getting down on all 4’s and lighting the fire is its downside.

    The overall build is very good – the only thing I’d be a bit picky on is that you can see a couple of silver screws showing in front of the back feet when sitting at certain angles to the fire and if a sleeve could be produced to hide the copper gas pipe, to be honest, you really could mistake this fire for a real coal burner.

    As soon as the fire has warmed through, the amount of heat it gives off is fantastic – just watch your hands when touching the doors at the front when hot.

    The overall look of the fire when lit is BRILLIANT – I’d seen the log burning version (gas) in a showroom and I thought that was PHENOMENAL and I had a few reservations about the coat effect but it really does look like real coal burning.

    The only other drawback is that when you open the doors on the front of the fire, there is a piece of glass fitted and you can see some of the fittings which is a shame – it’s a pitty they can’t make the fire look more authentic when the doors are open.

    So, keep the doors closed, get a remote with the fire you order and you’ll be over the moon.

    Would I buy it again given the chance – YES … okay, these are more pricey than some burners but they really do have a real look and feel about them and the flames look AMAZINGLY authentic.
