/enamel has come off from both the control sliders, we used the appliance as instructed by doing only small fires for first 3 uses, really disappointed by these happening so quickly after having the stove fitted.
Stove expert replied: Have you been back to the supplier to ask for warranty assistance? I am sure that if the rope has frayed this can be replaced and also paint could be supplied to cover the control sliders. Teething problem I suspect and please review again on the working of the stove in the near future.

based on the looks and feel of it in the showroom so I'm reviewing here to help others. The features I really like about the stove are as follows; great classic looking stove, extremely sturdy build with strong fittings, the castings seem thick and look to be of a high quality, very large window that seems to stay just as clean as our old clearview stove (once you master the controls as all stoves are different), the air controls and door handle stay cool enough to touch without a glove and it is quite large for a 5kw stove so it fills a large opening even if your room is not big enough to warrant a larger (usually higher kw) stove.The heat output is quite high compared to our previous 5kw as the body is larger and thicker but output is easily controllable using the secondary air control when burning wood. The fire box is well insulated with bricks and a large vermiculite baffle which really helps keep the fire combustion temperature up so burning even large hardwood logs (400mm x 150mm) is not an issue.My only small criticism is the lack of riddling grate and tool for removing a hot ash pan. These are not an issue if you just burn wood as I predominantly do but if you plan on using it to mainly burn smokeless fuel or anthracite then it may be a determining factor. I have made an ash pan handle from steel to remove it whilst hot (acr could offer this as an accessory quite easily I would imagine). The lack of riddler is not really a major issue - you just have to get busy with the poker. I only burn anthracite when its extremely cold out so its something I'm happy to live with.On the whole a fantastic purchase backed up by a solid warranty and actual people who answer the telephone and emails when you need to ask them something. Buy with confidence!

in ash works a treat!). I also found this tricky to light and control the burn, despite the initial ease of use. aside from these niggles, I am still very happy with this beautiful stove and can't wait for the cold to set back in again so I can enjoy reading a book by the fire again!
Stove expert replied: Have you an air brick in the room as it may not have enough free air to burn efficiently and could be causing the blackening of the glass. Do you keep the air control open as this will effect the glass wash system?
, and would definitely recommend this burner.
thrilled with my purchase.Â
local retailers to find a replacement. We wanted traditional cast iron construction and, and a fairly plain, classic style, and we were horrified at the prices of the better known brands. The Rowandale ticked all the boxes, and offered a few bonus points: firebricks inside, brushed steel door handle, nice solid closing action on the door, a lip directly in front of the door that catches a lot of the falling ash during cleaning. Overall a nice looking 5kw stove, easy to run, and already heats us out of the room. Our last stove was rated at 6kw and this one is every bit as effective at heating a similar sized room. Finally, we added a stove thermometer this time, and it has enabled us to get great fuel economy from our well seasoned logs. We have a fairly short flue, so we do need to warm it thoroughly as we start the stove to get the correct draw. This is not an issue with the stove. It takes a while to get going, and then we have to keep a close eye on it until it is up to heat and ticking over, otherwise we can smoke up the glass. Our stove is DEFRA approved, and we could de-DEFRA it by removing a screw if we want to try and run it overnight. At the moment we are not that bothered as the residual heat is really keeping the chill off the house overnight. To summarize, we thoroughly recommend this stove.
