Likes: It lights, with a match; a big, long match. I'd do better with a charcoal grill in my living room.

Dislikes: Everything about it is goofy; the gas access is just where the logs need to be plumbed, the blowers don't really "blow", the blower switch is antique design and on the front? and the manufacturer's engineer was nasty when I asked a question about styling the fireplace.

Comments: Peice of Junk; avoid FMI.
