  • owned for 30-years, use every day Oct to March, moved with us twice, brilliant stove,

    Sheron Hassell 7 years ago

    Mine's probably one of the first 350's, bought direct from Jonathan @ Clearview about 30-years ago, when the company was a mere fledgling. I sell logs so they're free for me so I obviously... []

  • Exellent, Very efficient stove, but maybe too big for smaller houses.

    Alison Kristina 7 years ago

    I've had the Clearview 650 for a about 6 months now, and this will be my first winter. I live in a late 1800's 2 bedroom stone cottage in the middle of the countryside. As a wood burning stove... []

  • Air wash

    Alastair Findlay 7 years ago

    Even after a service, the issues we had last year (first full year) are still there. The air wash is at best temperamental and the glass needs cleaning every day, sometimes not a big job but... []

    Stove expert replied: Surprising for a Clearview stove, is the wood dry and well seasoned?

  • Clearview 650

    Martin J 7 years ago

    I have had my 650 for 6 years now and upgraded it from an Olsberg Skagen 8 which kept cracking the glass so it had to go. The 650 pretty much does what it says on the tin - very robust construction... []

    Stove expert replied: Looks are not always everything, but if functioning well in other areas then this may be an issue!!

  • Clearview 650

    Jamie Macdonald 8 years ago

    We bought our Clearview 650 stove 4 years ago to help heat a drafty old farmhouse. As a result we now only burn oil for hot water so 1 2,500 ltr oil tank lasts 18 months!I do very much sympathise... []

    Stove expert replied: Internal components can become distorted if the stove gets too hot and this can lead to a shorter life so should be avoided. Do remember to clear the stove out once a month to check that the flue is clear and that all components are working correctly.

  • A generous stove for a big sitting room

    Peter Mahaffey 8 years ago

    This is a great stove for the very largest of sitting rooms (excepting the baronial). When run at a good operating temp it really throws out the heat. No problems keeping it in overnight so... []

    Stove expert replied: Two door stoves can have the sealing issue after time whereas you have less chance of this on a single door stove.
