    We had a Clearview stove at our last house. It worked really well and heated most of the house.This house is much more modern and needed an inset stove. Clearview don't make one of the right... []

    Stove expert replied: the second baffle probably does not get as hot as the first baffle. One should expect more deposits and condensation to form on the second baffle. Perhaps it might be worth getting a moisture meter to check the fuel quality. If the fire is being slow burnt or slumber burnt then this would also contribute.

    Love the stove but have a problem with where you put the door handle in. There is a guard around the hole that you put the handle in and ours has come out and wont stay back in again. Not sure... []

  • No regrets

    Ian Best

    We bought this fire to replace a Jetmaster like unit six months ago and have no regrets. We were looking for a fire that gave us more control and that we could close down while out and bring... []
