Review of Clearview vision 500 stove
Clearview Vision 500
I installed my Clearview about 7 years ago after a lot of research and am very pleased with my purchase. I have to heat an open plan ground floor of approximately 40sq meters in a small drafty Victorian cottage, which is then open to staircases to the next 2 floors.As this is my only source of heat in the house, and I suffer badly in the cold, I find that I have to maintain a temperature of at least 4kw. To achieve this I use a lot of smaller logs to get the stove really hot before inserting normal size logs. As soon as the fire is really glowing (about 5kw) I put on a really large log that virtually fills the grate. When this ignites I close the vents right down and don't have to touch the fire again for at least 2 hours. Brilliant for baked potatoes! Wrap in tin foil and place on the surface of the stove. Turn once or twice and they are ready in about an hour. Taste great , no pun intended, And they cost nothing to cook!
