Review of Town and Country Runswick stove
Good value & very efficient
I already have a Clearview Vision in another chimney. This is an excellent stove, very high quality but badly overpriced. I wanted a new inset stove for my lounge to replace a Jetmaster ie the available opening was on the small side & I didn't want to undergo major building work on the fireplace. At £730 the T&C Runswick was much cheaper & had the major advantage that it could be fitted without the need for an additional liner. The Runswick is very efficient at 79.9% & belts out a lot of heat keeping a large room warm. The quality is lower than a Clearview but quite satisfactory. My only niggle is that the riddling grate is poor & barely functions but this is not a major problem. By comparison, the Clearview riddles very effectively. The Runswick firebox is quite small requiring max 30cm length logs but of course I knew this before purchase. The airwash works very well & the stove is very easy to light & fully controllable. Overall I am very pleased with this stove & I deem it very good value.
