Very easy to use. no catalyst to maintain. wonderful view through the glass door of a finely tuned fire. Well made. Good factory support with answering questions/ finding obscure parts.
Still haven't been able to maintain a consistently hot fire throughout the 3-5 hours of one burn. Temp seems to get hot for the first 1-2 hours then cool down. This may be common with all stoves or be because of my masonry chimney installation.
I bought this stove because I read other reviews on this site. It's the only stove that had all positive reviews. I am very satisfied with the purchase.
