Review of Clearview vision 500 stove

I cant fault this Stove (",)

Phil Byrne 4 years ago

I have just had a Vision 500 installed in my kitchen and Blimey Charlie its a brilliant stove. The kitchen is freezing during Winter in my cottage and the Clearview has made a massive difference. It gets up to around 400F in just 20 minutes and radiates so much heat. I have a Stovax Stockton 6 in my lounge and this stove seems so weedy in comparison.(It just doesn't seem to give enough heat) Im a chimney sweep so I often ask my customers if they are happy with their woodburners and the 2 manufacturers that have the most glowing reviews are Scan and Clearview. I find the Clearview really easy to light and very controllable, if the stove is burning too hot I can turn down the heat with ease. I have also noticed that in the morning there is nothing left in the stove other than ash unlike my Stovax that seems to struggle to burn everything through when cooling down
