Review of Clearview Solution 500 stove

Overpriced, over-rated poor efficiency

Katrina Ryzarda 4 years ago

I own a cheap stove and this one - I know where my money was better spent. I burn this hot and yet the glass always stains-I have had to replace the glass and seals in the first two years due to discolouration and the installer tried to prevent the stains by sealing the glass tightly so they both broke after a month-DON'T waste your money on the hype-this is not the best stove and I think the only reason why people rave is to justify the absurd amount paid for a name...

Stove expert replied: Normally glass discolouration is due to not enough air being allowed in the airwash, damp fuel, poor draw on chimney etc. A disappointing review.
