We love our Wagener, it heats the water, entire house and we do all our cooking on it.
I've been meaning to write for some time now to say just how much we are enjoying our Fairburn wood stove. It's everything I was expecting and the family are really enjoying the use of it as well. Cooks well, and keeps the cottage really warm. Stays in all night without a problem. It's great. Thank you very much.
Still loving our Fairburn, 6 years on.
We have a Fairburn stove which we love. Ours is 6 years old and going well. We use it as our main heat source for our house and it cooks a mean roast!! We live in Invercargill.
What a lovely stove! I have had builders, electricians, plumbers and building inspectors at the house and they all get very excited about it. It has turned a damp miserable old ex state house into a warm dry home with a heart. And it has more than halved the power bill already. My daughter (it's her home) just loves it. Kind regards, Pauline Bevin
3 yrs ago we purchased a Wagener Fairburn from Wilson's in Te Puke. It now takes pride and place in my wonderful kitchen, center place I might add. What a fantastic cooker. The amount of pots I can fit on the top of the stove is great. This cooker has seen many a meal eaten from it. From home killed turkey, beef, mutton, lamb, chicken, goat, bread, soups, jams the list goes on. Thanks so much for producing a wonderful product, and Kiwi made to boot. Karen and Will, Oropi
I was bought up on the farm and later in forestry with Orion and Shacklock 501 coal ranges. The Fairburn is a far more efficient cooker and better for heating than any of these old stoves were and it doesn't gobble wood like some of the other woodburners available. Between April and October our Fairburn hardly goes out and our electricity supplier must hate it with the way it cuts our power bill. She's a beauty! Bill Simmons, Wanganui
"We have been very impressed with our new Wagener Fairburn. We have an endless supply of hot water so this alone is a wicked power saving. As for the cooking and power bill, we would never go back to the old way of life again, our power bill has dropped over 50% and I haven't used my electric oven since we have had the Fairburn. PS. We have decided if we ever move our Fairburn is coming too."
Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our Fairburn cooker. Since putting it in we have had the power off on our hot water cylinder, (about 2 months now), and have had plenty of hot water when we need it. We have also used it for cooking, baking bread, and when it's going there's always a kettle of boiling water whenever we want a cup of coffee or tea. Everyone who has seen it thinks it's amazing. Many thanks for a great product. Len (Hill), Whangarei
"I've recently installed a Fairburn stove in our house after the Champion Coal Range we have used every day for the last 20 years finally wore out. What a revelation the Fairburn is!
We are very pleased with our stove (as we were with the Wagener Cooker that we installed in our last home), and love to see the flames through the glass fire door - makes you feel warm just looking at it. All our visitors love it. We have so much hot water - it's great. Tony & Linda, Wellsford
"Hi, just thought I would send you a picture of our newly fitted Wagener Fairburn. My husband and I are thrilled with it . We have a wet back on it and it produces more than enough hot water for our needs. We love to cook on it to. I designed the fireplace for it and my husband built it. Thank you for a great product"
I have attached a pic of our newly installed Wagener Fairburn. We purchased this stove almost 2 years ago from Philip at Kings Mowers and Heating in Rangiora, Christchurch. We found Philip very helpful and fantastic to deal with. We used to have an old coal range (shacklock) in the place where the Fairburn is now....thanks to the earthquakes and losing the old brick chimney, we had to replace the old coal range. We used to use the old coal range a lot, to heat hot water and cook on, and really missed it. The Fairburn is very much equal to the old Shacklock in terms of how it goes with heating water and cooking on/in. The window in the oven is a great improvement over the Shacklock : ) I must say, in the September 5-day power outage due to the winds, the Fairburn well and truly reminded us why we love these stoves....we made perfect sausage rolls and bacon and egg pies with the pastry, bacon and sausage meat that had defrosted in the freezer. We had hot water and showers - such a blessing!!So, thank you for making these stoves

14 years ago I purchased a Wagener Cooker. It has served me well and I am still delighted with it. The Cooker is the heart of our household, it heats our water, cooks 95% of our food, keeps the whole house warm and makes our chosen lifestyle possible. I have only good things to say about a NZ product that works well and furthers the cause of self-reliance and off-grid living.
I have had my Wagener Cooker since 1998. We use it extensively throughout the year both winter and summer. It supplies all of our hot water needs twelve months of the year. In summer we light it in the morning and bank it with two shovels of coal with a firewood base. We can cook breakfast on it and it heats enough hot water in our 360ltr hot water cylinder to deliver two lengthy showers and our hot water need during the day.
During winter we normally have more hot water than we know what to do with. The stove handle’s all our cooking requirements plus heating and with our clothes drying rack (The pull up variety on rope) we never need to worry about getting the washing dry. Our savings are considerable not to mention the satisfaction with being independent of the electricity providers’
I have found that keeping the stove clear of soot build ups and checking on the condition of the firebricks and replacing them when they wear ensures that the stoves performs to peak efficiency. The fire grate normally lasts me about 2 years as I burn coal in my stove. General housekeeping relating to the stove has kept mine working perfectly for the last 16 years and given we live in Ohakune that’s very important as we depend on it.
