Our engineers have studied flicker patterns to perfectly emulate the flame of a real fire, with hand-painted logs that produce a deep lifelike glow. Beautifully crafted, Chesneys gas stoves strike the perfect balance between efficiency and elegance. Once you’re set on a Chesneys stove, all that’s left to do is select the perfect model for your home. To help you decide, we’ve put together this guide highlighting the key features of each Chesneys gas stove range.

Getting the most from your Chesneys gas stove
Unlike more traditional wood burning and multi-fuel models, Chesneys gas stoves are equipped with a few modern amenities to enhance your fireside experience. They can be operated using a remote handset, allowing you to control the fire from the comfort of an armchair or sofa. Lighting the gas stove is as simple as holding down the power button on your handset. In approximately three seconds, you’ll hear a short beep – this is your cue to release the button and watch the fire spring to life. The remote control can also be used to adjust the height and temperature of the flames on your Chesneys appliance, giving you a level of control that would be impossible with other types of stove.
With any gas appliance, safety is of paramount importance. The Chesneys gas stove collection has been tested and certified by the UK’s leading independent test laboratory and our rigorous quality control systems ensure that all our appliances conform to British Standards. With the handy remote on each of our gas stoves, you can programme the handset to disable the fire after a set number of hours or minutes – so you can put your worries at rest and focus on spending quality time with your loved ones.
