Review of Clearview vision 500 stove

Excellent Clearview Vision 500

Will Richardson 11 years ago

After trawling through a mountain of brochures, visiting endless showrooms and online review sites we finally settled on the Clearview Vision 500 and had it installed in February. We couldn't be happier with it and it looks even better in the flesh than in the brochures. The simple design and large window, easy controls and ash pan mean that it is a pleasure to use and the heat output is impressive. The handle does get hot but useful gloves were included so have had no problem there and we have not managed to keep it in overnight yet - but that is probably down to our wood rather than the stove. Highly recommmend for an 8KW stove, especially its British roots.
