Why is the Di Lusso stove range proving so popular?
While Hunter Stoves has a reputation for innovation and ground breaking technology, it is safe to say that the Di Lusso stove range has gone above and beyond many expectations. Described as “style meets technology” there is no doubt that the Di Lusso range of stoves has injected a degree of innovation into an often predictable market. Whether looking at a stand-alone or inset Di Lusso stove there are many options available.
Many people fail to realise that it is Hunter Stoves that designed and manufactures the Di Lusso stove. This is a company which has a history going back to 1970 and was recognised by many as the first UK based wood stove manufacturer. As the UK stove market grew, the company came back to prominence in the 1990s, creating innovative and technologically advanced stoves. Expansion followed as well as the purchase of various stove brands, with over 200 designs now listed on the website!
Committed to research and development, as well as respecting its environmental responsibilities, the company now distributes to Europe, South Africa, New Zealand and Japan. The Di Lusso stove range is just the latest in a long line of successful additions. So what does this range offer?
Di Lusso R4 Inset Stove
The Di Lusso R4 Inset Stove may be the smallest in the range but, as it says in the brochure, it packs a powerful punch. The heat output is between 2 kW and 6 kW, rated a nominal 4.9 kW inset stove. It has a dynamic air control cassette, cleanburn technology, hot airwash system and is DEFRA approved when fitted with the appropriate kit. The design of the Di Lusso R4 Inset Stove is certainly impressive, with an enlarged viewing area so that you can watch the flickering flames and the burning embers.

The flame blade technology ensures that fuel is burnt and re-burnt, by introducing a fourth stream of air into the combustion process.

We live in a world where the environment is front and centre and thankfully stove manufacturers such as Hunter Stoves are appreciative of their responsibilities.
