Review of Stovax Riva 55 stove

Good working stove but poorly made

Charlie Wheadon 2 months ago

Its a good working stove but the components are cheaply made and the metal is thin and poor quality I would imagine its not made in the UK..

When you have to replace parts they are excessively expensive " what a shame"

Stove expert replied: It is quite often the case that spares seem to be priced high compared to the initial purchase cost, this is common in may cases with other goods purchased. Most components do last a reasonable time and no information on what has been replaced means this is therefore difficult to comment on further.
