  • Clearview Vision 500 Stove - a complete revelation

    Frank K 2 years ago

    We have just had a used Vision 500 fitted for us by a local, reputable HETAS engineer. This stove has literally transformed a chilly, draughty 16th century farmhouse into a toasty and cosy place... []

    Stove expert replied: Providing the wood is dry, well seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20% the heat generated should be high with efficient burning achieved.

  • Worth the wait!

    Liz Wallace 3 years ago

    It took us 2.5 years to decide on the appropriate stove for future-proofing our sitting room. I really loved our open fire but the down-draughts of billowing smoke, soot, poor energy efficiency... []

    We installed our first one 20 years ago (we later put in a Vision and a Pioneer in other rooms). We only burn seasoned wood. Last year was the first time that we had it properly serviced and... []

    I wanted to buy anything but a clearview as everybody around us has one. However the more people we spoke to the more we were swayed back to clearview. Our local dealer initially advised... []

  • Not worth the high cost.

    3 years ago

    Having lived with our new stove for about 5 months, My honest felling is one of disappointment. The Vision 500 is not a cheap stove. It is in the higher price bracket, and in my opinion over... []

  • Best stove on the market

    3 years ago

    It is 14 years since we installed our Clearview Vision 500 stove to heat our 3mtr x 7mtr living room, and heat the domestic water and 2 small radiators from the small back boiler. In the time... []

    Stove expert replied: Most closed appliances (Stoves) use smokeless fuel and not household coal this is due to coal being a dirtier fuel, it burns with a longer flame and can distort internal parts. Being a dirtier fuel is often prevents the airwash from working effectively. Great long term service from this appliance.

  • 26 years of toastiness

    3 years ago

    Bought this stove about 26 years ago. It is the best appliance purchase we have ever made. What can I say other than it has never had a fault and provided my wife two children a dog and a cat... []

  • Clearview Vision 500

    4 years ago

    Great stove, love it and find the thermometer very useful. Can't remember what size rope - 10mm or 12mm? Thanks Cate

    Stove expert replied: The rope required for stoves varies not only in the diameter but the density so it is best to purchase a genuine replacement.

  • |Good Stove

    4 years ago

    We have purchased 2 of these stoves (2 separate properties). Burns well, the glass stays clean (I wipe it once a week with a damp cloth), it stays in over night no problem, jiggle it in the... []

    Stove expert replied: Do not let ash build up in the ash pan, this is best removed more frequently but as using wood I dare say not a great deal of ash is being produced.

  • Awesome Stove

    Paul Russell 4 years ago

    I looked at this stove over a year ago and thought this is a lot of money for a stove but after using it for only 3 days it's the best investment I have made, the controllability is just like... []
