Review of Yeoman CL8 stove

Disappointing

Mary Coleman 2 years ago

Very disappointed with this stove. Had to replace log holder as it literally just burnt out. The top casting again just burnt out and fell off. The parts are not very sturdy and are expensive to replace. Ash pan very small, has to be emptied regularly. Also it does not heat the amount of radiators it specifies. Expensive stove to buy and I would defnitely not recommend it. I thought I was buying a good stove but am very disappointed with how the parts literally just crumble away.

Stove expert replied: It is strange that you have had more than one part fail. It could be due to over firing of the stove so I would suggest a flue thermometer to insure that you are operating the stove withing the correct parameters.
