Likes: Heats very well and attractive. Dealer very helpful and knowledgable. Dealer came to my home and checked application first. This stove has a tapered back, which helped me go to a larger stove.

Dislikes: Blower is a must. If you load the stove up and choke it down-the glass is gonna get dirty. Smaller, hot fires work better to keep it clean.

Comments: If your fire smokes the glass is gonna get dirty. Heats very well, very good dealer.
