Review of Burley Hollywell 9105 stove

Mr

Alan Anderson last month

I have to multi stoves in my property 1 Burley 1905 and a tiger stove of which is note a burley stove.

I have had repeated issue with the burley stove replacing the stainless steel baffle 3 times and the front glass 2 times also replaced 2 times is the vermiculite above the baffles, The stainless steel and the steel inners of the fire corrode excessively quick thus falling apart.

The Burley has been used less than the tiger and also been in the property for 2 years whilst the tiger has been in the property for 7 years without issue other than 1 fire brick being replaced.

The Burley whilst being a lot more expensive to buy is very much an inferior product, I will be replacing this fire and due to my experiences with this Burley product, I will not entertain another Burley fire or product.

The fire is expensive to operate due to constant replacement parts required.

Stove expert replied: What a shame you have found this a disappointing stove, they do vary greatly and other reviewers have has better experiences.
