  • Gives out very little heat. Talked into wrong model

    Justin Lusty 3 weeks ago

    The burner gives out so little heat that it is insufficient on a mild spring evening. I complained to Clearview with no reply from them. £2,500 wasted.

    Purchased through a local dealer. Recent emissions test by plumber revealed about 1000 ppm CO which is lethal. We wondered why we felt unwell when it burned. I am currently trying to get this sorted with supplier.... []

  • Best small stove on the market

    Peter Jones 10 months ago

    I fitted one of these stoves earlier on in the year after having been so impressed with two others I'd seen at friends houses. It is a beautifully engineered stove which is so easy to light, less than a minute for a roaring blaze. It is as controllable as a gas fire, and being steel construction heats up very quickly. Massive heat output for the size, yet amazingly economical with the logs. If the burn is kept at a reasonable level, the glass hardly needs cleaning the following morning. Like all wood burners if it's turned right down for any length of time the glass will get really dirty. So easy to use, and great looking too! You get what you pay for, it's not cheap, but for such an important purchase why cut corners.... []

    My family have used Clearview stoves of various sizes for decades. All of them are outstanding, but the smallest, cheapest, of them all is the Pioneer. I use one in a detached, three-bed,... []

    They say "you get what you pay for", and that's certainly true of the Clearview Pioneer 400. We started this expedition aiming to spend approx £500 on our stove. We ended spending almost £... []
