Review of Clearview vision 500 stove

pioneer

Derekhunter Hunter 7 years ago

I purchased a pioneer based on Clearviews claims regarding the greenest stove available etc the best materials etc however absolute rubbish as all these claims where found to be misleading by the advertising authorities I requested a refund and was refused these guys are liars

Stove expert replied: Claims by stove manufacturer's always need to be checked. Nearly every make publishes the outputs and efficiency, and any reputable retailer should be able to say what material the stove is made from. It is true that some makes stand on their reputation and so we must be aware that manufacturers vary in how well they keep up with the rapidly changing technology within the stove industry. The efficiency level of Clearview stoves is lower than some other makes but generally their customers seem happy with their stoves.

    Not very constructive, lets be honest, firms have some degree of licence. I have had a clearview for 10 years and 2 other makes previous. although the Jotul was prettier, clearview is an excellent bit of kit - just look at resale prices!
