The stove was present when I moved into the house in 2008, I think it was newly installed. It has not had too much use, I would reckon at the maximum 20 times per year if that. I note today... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Enamel is normally a robust finish so for it to be coming off seems rather strange but the stove is now at least 8years old.

Stove expert replied: A geriatric stove with plenty of life left in it, fantastic review!
Our stove needs spare parts/service/repair to damper and air inlet and we can find no engineers in Notts/Derbys/Leics that are able to do this. Several retailers sell Vermont but it appears... [ read more ]

We installed an Intrepid II in December 2006 and going by all the reviews we had read expected to have a good number of years trouble free. However, we have had to replace several throat plates... [ read more ]
