Venus log burner Review by Denise carrington
I have just had a Venus log burner delivered, the customer service was excellent, it arrived when they said it would, the delivery driver was so polite and helpful, after having a bad experience with another company I would highly recommend modern stoves . (Posted on 08/11/2017)
Condor Review by Don Charles
Hi Nicky,

We finally got the stove installed last weekend and if I were to write a review it would go as follows -
The Condor range stove is a good looking cheap alternative to other much more expensive models. Unfortunately that's where the good news ends. We lit the fire and it started and burnt well. As we opened the door to load in more wood a few minutes later, the sealing rope remained stuck to the stove front which left us in the position of a hot fire with no seal on the door and trying to push same back into the groove on the open door. We got the sealing rope back on in some fashion and next day I re - stuck it back onto the door. We then lit the stove again which started well.

I'm sorry to have to say all of the above, but do intend to publish this review to warn others. Your service to us has been great - it's sad about this product.

Don Charles.

REPLY FROM MODERN STOVES:-
Dear Mr Charles, we apologise for the issue, however the results are due to misuse during the first lighting of the appliance. When a customer purchases a stove from us, we send an email to the customer that recommends the door should not be latched shut during the first lighting of the appliance. This is because the paint finish begins to cure during the first fire and the paint will become soft and tacky during the first fire. Due to the paint becoming tacky there is a risk that the rope seal will stick to the painted surface of the body of the appliance and when the door is opened it can pull the rope seal away from door. If this occurs we ask our customers to contact us so that we can provide some high temperature adhesive (FREE OF CHARGE) in order to re affix the rope seal. If the rope seal is not re-affixed then it will become damaged and this will effect the operation of the appliance. Here follows a copy of the email that we send to all customers who place an order:-

We would advise that you make the first fire small, in order to allow the stove and paint finish to adapt to the heat. During the first fire the paint finish will be vulnerable to damage whilst it cures, and the rope seal on the stove door may also stick to the body of the stove if the door is locked shut, therefore we would recommend that you leave the door slightly ajar for the first fire or if this is not possible please open and close the door at least every 15-20 mins. Please be mindful that hot embers may spit from the wood! Essentially the materials of the stove need time to adapt to the effects of the heat.

Please note that during both the first and second lighting of the stove, it is perfectly normal for the stove to give a smoke vapour, there will also be a strong smell of burning paint in the room, this is perfectly normal, but may cause some discomfort if you do not ventilate the room, we therefore strongly recommend that you open at least one window. It is also normal that that you will see a haze in the room, this is caused by the effects of the paint finish heating up, after the second fire this will stop.

It is quite normal for the glass on your stove to become and remain black during the first few small fires you have. This is down to the curing of the paint and also because the fire is not reaching capacity owing to small fires. Please do not worry about this, once you are ready to have your first substantial fire, any black stuck to the door will burn away and the glass will then remain clean burning during subsequent fires.

It heats up evenly and stays hot. I hope this helps. I found the other reviews for his product to be very accurate. (Posted on 03/03/2016)
My review Review by Bill
I've had this stove for over 12 months now, and found it to be a reliable well made product. Originally I looked at buying a Rayburn but the cost was just so expensive, and I kepy finding my self going back to the Condor. But despite assurances from Modern Stoves I was worried about the quality so I traveled to Manchester to see it at their warehouse. I must say that on seeing it I was immediately impressed and Modern Stoves seemed to have a lot of knowledge and experience of its operation.
Although I was initially concerned that he Condor wouldn't be up to the job, I pleased to say that it heats all my radiators with ease (9 radiators, 2 of them are very large). Good points are that is is easy to light, and the large fire box means that you can load it up with fuel and leave it alone to burn.
Bad points.. my wife marked the top when we first bought the stove and we haven't managed to get the mark off, however Modern Stoves have said that it can easily be re-painted with some high temperature paint that they have, bit we decided to put up with the mark for the time being. l also think the stove should have come with a separate handle on the ash pan so that you can remove it when it is hot, but I've made something myself so that I can grab the hot ash pan, but a tool with the stove would have been handy.

Condor supply and installation Review by Luke
Very pleased with the new Condor back boiler stove oven. Heats our seven radiators with ease with just a small amount of coal or a couple of logs, for around 8 hours. Family and friends starting to complain of house being too hot! Starting to use it for cooking, and surprised at how effective it is.
Also, very pleased with new valiant boiler they supplied and fitted, very competitive price. Very competent and helpful fitters throughout.

Very satisfied customers

very good stove, excellent service. Review by antique crofter
We wanted to thank you for the excellent service we received before we ordered the stove/cooker. All our questions, and there were many, were answered without any problem or hassle. We are also very pleased with the stove which is now installed and working very well, can't wait for the winter to really fire it up! (Posted on 12/08/2014)
Just a few pointers Review by Pat
I have had this stove for 14 month and yes it is a great wood burning stove plenty of heat and hot water and I have done a lot of cooking on it BUT I would suggest the doors open fully as taking very hot heavy cassaroll dishes out if not careful you can tough the door with your arm resulting in a burn ( or am I just clumsy ) All in all great value for money and the service was second to none as they say you get what you pay for but in this case a little more (Posted on 03/01/2014)
Great value for money do not hesitate to buy if you want central heating, hot water and a cooker. Review by Ms S Chapman
Hi

Thought you might like a review of the Condor Range with Back boiler that we have just plumbed in for your website. It is a fantastic stove not only great to look at but is very easily running 6 radiators and hot water. It burns really well and draws amazingly plus is easy to control. Having the cooker makes it so much more useful. Great value for money do not hesitate to buy if you want central heating, hot water and a cooker.

I am very pleased and the service was great, very friendly and helpful staff. Plus the Flue was the best price anywhere!

Many thanks (Posted on 02/12/2013)
