Di Lusso Stoves

Di Lusso Stoves

Di Lusso is the premier brand of the UK manufacturer Hunter Stoves.

Despite their Italian sounding name they are designed and manufactured in the UK.  The main reason we decided to add Di Lusso to the range of stoves we sell is the superb controllability of the fires.  They burn very efficiently across the whole output range, allowing for slow but clean combustion.

Available as both freestanding and inset versions, they can be specified with a DEFRA kit allowing woodburning in smoke control areas, and all models can be used with a Direct Air kit if required.

Another unusual feature is the minimalist design, cleverly concealing the air controls behind the discreet centrally positioned door handle.  There are no protruding handles or control knobs on this range of stoves, just sleek, efficient design.

The unique Di Lusso Dynamic Control technology was developed to create a range of convector fires that can burn effectively and efficiently at both low and high temperatures – something no other fire on the market can do – ensuring that whatever size your room, big or small, there is a Di Lusso stove to suit your needs.

This innovative thinking combined with the sleek, stylish look of the Di Lusso stoves range makes this one of the most sought-after fires available. Sitting flush to the wall or freestanding and offering beautifully clear viewing glass, the Di Lusso fits effortlessly into your home, bringing any room alive with the beauty of natural flame.

Why do I need… heat proof gloves?

Often included with most new stoves, heat proof gloves are

essential for opening the door to your stove when in use and regulating the controls of the stove.

Heat proof gloves can also help when loading the logs into the burn chamber, allowing them to be placed rather than thrown in which can be dangerous.

Don’t be tempted to use oven gloves instead of proper stove gloves – your stove gets much hotter than an oven!

Why do I need… Stove glass cleaner?

How clean the glass stays on your stove will depend on a wide range of factors, what experience tells us however, is sooner or later you will need to clean it.

We sell sprays, gels and dry wipe pads to make this chore less arduous, depending on model of stove and the severity of the dirt build up.

Why do I need a… stove fan?


A heat powered fan that helps to distribute the stoves heat more evenly in the room.  Particularly useful when the stove is not centrally located, it helps to move the warm air around to achieve a comfortable room temperature more quickly and evenly.  Can make the stove look cluttered, and they cannot be used on some modern convector type stoves.
