Review of Clearview vision 500 stove

Is it worth the high price?

Catherine Thompson 11 years ago

Clearview are more expensive than other stove manufacturers, but is the price reflected in the product? I can only answer this with a resounding "yes!" my Clearview burns all winter-morning, noon and night without any trouble (and usually with poorly seasoned wood). If you are looking to buy a new stove, looking at prices will definitely cause false economy.
