  • not pleased with the carron stove

    I have had 3 stoves they all seem to crack on top and the door handle keeps working loose, the ash pan has buckled and the fire bricks are crumbling. Carron have replaced the stoves but when... []

    Stove expert replied: Warranties on stoves do not normally cover the parts which are deemed as consumable (eg bricks), being asked for a report seems a reasonable request when several are under discussion as in need of replacement after such a short time.

    This is a lovely stove and very good value - it kind of contemporary but with the bulk of a proper stove, throws out lots of heat and the glass stays clean with seasoned wood. I looked everywhere... []

  • Cream Carron 4.7

    8 months ago

    This has been my third winter using this little stove. I love it. It burns well, responds quickly to adjustments of the lower air inlet, and looks pretty all year round. After two years the chimney sweep replaced the fire rope which surrounds the door, nothing else has required attention.... []

    Excellent little stove, stays in all night with smokeless fuel . Logs need re-fuelling every 1hr. It looks so pretty on my black slate hearth. Well made cast iron, it stays warm 2hrs after the... []

    Barry Madden one year ago

    Wow! Just had it fitted. We have oil-fired central heating, and for the first time ever we have been able to close the rads down and let the Carron heat our 3000sq.ft. home. We were roasted,... []

  • My first experience with a woodburner

    Philip Bigio 2 years ago

    Bought the carron (black) about a year ago and I would say that I am moderately happy with it. Plus points: Looks good, easy to light/use, relatively inexpensive Airwash works ok Minus points: Build quality a bit iffy High fuel consumption rather wish I had spent more and bought a clearview Vision 500 though it's at least double the price!... []

    Stove expert replied: Is the high consumption due to the flue draw being in excess of the recommended draw stated by the manufacturer?

    Bought this stove 4 years ago and always saw it as a cheap and cheerful partner to the Morso I have in another room. Well, the Carron has been pretty faultless in all that time, whilst the Morso... []
