COUNTRY KILN LITTLE COTTAGE STOVE REVIEW.

Ashley Richardson 6 years ago

Nice stove...BUT the glass went a milky colour after little use... I asked for a replacement as it was clearly not fit for purpose, with it discoulouring at low usage, they denied it and said I am misusing the stove and running at high temperatues !..... is that not the point of a stove anyway !

BUYERS BEWARE YOU WILL NOT GET ANY AFTERCARE!

Stove expert replied: Glass discolouration - a miky / cloudy deposit is normally due to over-drawing the stove and this will not wash off, Short periods of fast burn for no more than 20mins max at any one time is recommended. A stove needs to work but should not be used flat out all the time.
