Keep winter at bay with the Fortrose electric stove from Dimplex

Dimplex Fortrose electric Opti-myst stove

Bring a taste of the Scottish Highlands to your home with the chic, honest simplicity of a cast iron-style electric stove. The Fortrose is the latest, beautiful Optimyst stove from heating experts Dimplex, combining the classic feeling of a wood burning stove with all the ease of electric.

This large-sized electric stove makes a real statement in any home with a luxurious metal flecked graphite finish that frames the incredibly realistic 3D visuals of the Optimyst electric flame effect. With real doors you have a choice of how you view the ‘flames’ for a statement piece that captures the romance and the cosy embrace of a windswept Highlands home.

Being electric, the Fortrose is incredibly easy to install, simply plug in and fill the handy reservoir with water to generate the Optimyst effect.  Able to be used independently of heat, the Optimyst flame effect can recreate that roaring log fire the whole year round. Or simply adjust the intensity of the ‘flames and smoke’ for a subtler effect.

This freestanding stove cleverly incorporates a 2kw fan heater, with a choice of two heat settings, so that you can supplement your heating when you need to really feel the warmth, all from the comfort of your chair with the remote control.

Jonathan Smith, flame technology manager, Dimplex says; “The Fortrose is a fabulous addition to our range of Optimyst electric stoves. It has a real presence in the room, acting as a focal point for your interior design and the perfect accompaniment to cosy chats with family and friends.”

Fortrose is available from December 2017 through
