Review of Clearview vision 500 stove

Completely brilliant

Andrew 11 years ago

The first reviewer was obviously not working her stove correctly. This is a brilliant stove, ours is in a larger room and warms it very effectively. Sometimes too effectively hence only 4 stars on controlability. The heat from the lounge also keeps that end of the house warm. Ease of lighting depends very much on the quality of the wood. Dry well seasoned wood catches and burns easily, less well seasoned wood needs a bit more effort and a little longer to build up the heat. I would not consider anything other type of stove.
