Review of Glaisdale stove

Town and Country Glaisedale

P Vaughan 8 years ago

I have had this Glaisedale for 5years plus and am thrilled each winter by it's ease of use, fantastic control, from glowing embers to full flow within a couple of minutes and a truly top rate performance. It has been a fantastic investment and easily heats the whole house. Once lit it will stay in for the whole winter season if needed. The only reason for it to go out is not to feed it because as it is so efficient...we are too hot! I agree with one criticism, the door hinge does ride up and we lost the glass when the door fell off. Nasty when every thing is very hot. This is a serious fault which the manufacturer should resolve... I have easily solved this by replacing the pins with nuts and bolts. I have not had any other problems with the stove and have recommended it to my friends.

Stove expert replied: Easy remedy for hinge problem, well done. Sounds like a reasonable stove.
