Likes: Absolutely the greatest stove ever. Easy to use (simple air control) Holds huge logs....10-11 hour burn...Can't tell you enough how great this stove is. Replaced a Quad with this monster and wish I had done it much sooner. If you are even thinking of a stove check this one out! Have been heating my house with it for 2 years now. Not one complaint! The glass actually stays clean just like the dealer said. Much closer clearances than my other stoe too. Love the stove! Did I say that already?

Dislikes: Let me see....wood handle maybe not the greatest. But hey.....if that is the only thing I can say....You gotta get this stove!

Comments: Looked all around the Buffalo and the surrounding areas. Lots of stove shops here. Only two dealers that carried this stove. One was totally arrogant. Thankfully, I found Heritage Fireplace! What a great bunch of people. Answered all of our questions, compared all the products available. Even started a fire for us so we could check it out ahead of time. Polite installers actually covered the whold room with drop cloths! (Even my wife was impressed with that one). I would highly recommend this company...for any of your heating needs. They will take care of you, and you will just enjoy the whole experience!
