Review of Clearview 750 stove

Not impressed with company-stove overrated

Craig Sauvage 9 years ago

Bought one two years ago, as recommend by a friend-was not impressed by the very high price compared to similar models, but still went ahead. Have used it all winter for the two years and although it did heat well, the airwash started to become faulty. I contacted the manufacturers and was dealt with by a very snooty woman, who inferred that it was my fault and not her precious stove. Finally I had to pay for an engineer to come and rectify the problem, he found that there was spare cast iron hampering the flow and removed it, re-did the seals that were also faulty and the stove works fine now.

Having spent such a lot, very disappointed with the build quality and also not happy with the appalling customer service. Would certainly not recommend this having had others in the past with no problems and much cheaper!
