  • Poor performance

    Philip McDonald 6 years ago

    I only bought our Chesney Salisbury because we were so impressed by the sales team who assured us of the quality and performance of these stoves. They installed it and the installation cost almost as much as the stove itself. This is our 7th wood burning stove over 25 years, so we know how a good fire should perform and I am very sorry to say that this stove under-performs very significantly. I find I am using more wood than I did with my previous fire which was more than double the size! The glass door fogs up unless the slide is kept well open. The lack of an ash pan is a serious oversight as the mess this fire makes is quite amazing. The push in and out slide adjusting control is jerky in operation and is hence very difficult to regulate. All in all, I would love to install another stove but having spent close on £1,900 for the stove and installation, I simply don't have enough money left to burn!!!!... []
