Review of Charnwood Island III stove

reasonably happy but ovepriced!

Peter Quinn 8 years ago

Bought this stove in an Irish outlet. Seems to work reasonably...but...ordered it in almond assuming it would arrive in Ireland with a factory painted stove...especially for 2,700 euro!!!, only to find out that it is not factory painted but done locally.....by spray...not done very well and had to buy an extra cannister for 24 euro and do some myself...as the local company was amateurish in its application...my old aunt could have done better!!! ended up by touching up missed bits and trying to get rid of over painted bits!!! Insist on factory painted job.
