You can't beat a contessa or lady Kitchener same fire just rotated differently. Ours has been and is still going strong after 13 years we turn the power to the hot water cylinder off during the winter months for probably about 4 months in total as soon as we start using the fire and we have never run out of hot water. It will boil up from cold in about 3 hours. It is the only form of home heating we have for a 220 sqm home.
Looking to install a heat transfer of some description one day to make full use of the heat our fire generates but I've been saying that for the last 13 years lol
Cheers

We have a Scandia Heat and Cook which Bunnings supply. We are very happy with it. Its easy to light and we have a wetback on it. The are only $2300 so could by two of them for the price of most of the other wood fire ovens. Not sure how long it will last but as mentioned we could buy another in 10 years or so and still come out on top.
The oven isn't bit but fine for what we need.
Our house is a three bay farm shed that has been converted. The fire is a bit to big for this but works out ok.

Pyroclassic 2 - NZ made and most efficient wood burner
Some find them ugly but you can cook off them and run a wetback water heater which I strongly recommend.

We have a Stanley Donard which we imported from Ireland, (it was Cheaper than buying here in NZ) We use it for cooking,baking, wetback and we also run raditors, It can be hungery on the wood front but the versatility is brillant and so nice in the winter.
