away but the control only allows it to either roar away or look as if it is going out. The back bricks cracked and the rope has come off both now fixed. You can put coal on it and the heat is intense it easy to clean and looks good yes not sure how I ever managed with out it
Stove expert replied: You should be able to operate the stove so a gentle flame picture is achieved, the controls should be moved only slightly until this achieved and now the rope seal has been sorted should be easier to achieve.

. Accepts large logs, but must light with kindling and smaller sticks - then easy. Have not tried burning overnight, but found embers that could have been relit. Only real criticism is primitive controls which do not allow fine adjustment, and some awkwardness in removing full ashtray.
Stove expert replied: Recommend emptying ash tray more frequesntly as this will help to prolong the life of the grate system adn makes it easier to handle.

I dropped in a metal plate to reduce the air flow which worked. I now use Ovoids so that we can keep it in over night or while at work. Running 24/7 it uses about 4 x 100 weight bags of Ovoids a month (180kg I think). At Â£16 a bag it works out at Â£64 a month running constantly. Our room is 5m x 6m and the fire is usually fully shut down so that the room doesn't get too hot. The glass soots up a bit but we do shut it down which doesn't help. The wide body allows large logs which is great. I find the stove easy to light. The controls are basic and aren't the best for fine adjustment but its not hard to get it right.
was too difficult.This little steel stove is also made in the UK which is a great feeling when buying.
Clearview Vision 500 which has nearly twice the output. The controls are crude and provide no real adjustment. Hardly any heat reaches the top so it's no good for heating kettles of water.On the plus side it projects heat forward well.Compared to our Clearview it's third-rate, wouldn't buy another.
