Review of Clearview vision 500 stove

Clearview 500

I bought this stove on the reviews it received from this web site. I had no knowledge of wood burners at all.\n\nWhat a fantastic stove easy to light and the way you control the wood burn rate is fantastic, I can slow the stove to stay in all night and adjust it so a single flame just flickers across a single log. \n\nIt took two men with a trolley to position the stove the guy remarked cheaper ones he can put in himself with out assistance they are that much lighter. Obviously the cheaper ones last no time at all. \n\nThe glass stays clean but can be brought back to as new with a damp cloth.\n\nWith the logs I was gullible enough to just think you throw them on and get your self a bonfire, you don't just place a few on and watch them burn down to nothing then put a few more on and do the same. \n\nIf Simon Cowell rated this stove it would be the X factor winner
