  • Customer service at Mendip

    I bought an ivory Mendip stove a few years ago to find the brushed steel handle once heated by the stove was dropping due to grub screw not holding the handle in place. This caused the handle
    to smash onto the enamel surface and chipped it accordingly. I have also experienced some crackled glazing on the edge of the stove glass and despite emailing the company on numerous occasions, there response has been lacklustre and not helpful. In fact they have not respond to my last email requesting assistance in locating some touch up paint for the stove. I will certainly not be using this company again. After sale back/service is poor, and I find them detached from their customer base.

    Stove expert replied: There are other spares suppliers who should be able to source the correct touch up paint for you if this has not been resolved with the supplier. Regarding the glass crackling effect, this is due to the stove being operated on a low setting for pro-longed periods. This causes a chemical reaction between the gases and the glass that is permanent but to prevent it increasing the stove should have short periods of fast burn at least twice daily. This effect does not alter the integrity of the glass and the stove is safe to continue to use.

    This little stove has a contemporary look to it, is easily lit and gets to the temperature you want in a short space of time. It is built very well and was excellent value for money. We love the stove and we would recommend this to anyone buying a stove especially for the first time.

    Stove expert replied: Great comments for this small stove.

  • Nice stove

    Michael Bull

    It's a well built and compact stove. As it was a fairly new stove when we bought it, there were no reviews, so we bought it purely on the quality feel of the handle and damper vent. The airwash keeps the glass quite clean, and it's very easy to control the temperature. I can keep the fire at 240 degrees easily with just the air wash fully open, and the bottom vent closed. Temperature control seems very stable. My only issue is the ash pan. It doesn't cover below the grate fully, and any ash which does drop down the sides of the tray, or whilst you're removing the tray is difficult to remove due to the design of the bottom of the stove. Other than that, I'm happy.
