Likes: You can burn anything you like. Even green wood seems to burn better in it than my other wood stove due to the clean burning technology. It doesn't soot up the pipe so bad as my other one does. I have to have the old stove chimney cleaned once a year. The Regency is averaging once every two years because the chimney sweep tells me the pipe is clean and if he cleans it he is just taking my money.

Dislikes: None that I can see. The stove we have is flawless perfection. Best money we have ever spent on our home.

Comments: I like this stove so much that I am replacing my old stove with another Regency F1100 pretty much like the one I have rated here. To put it bluntly, they just work and they are not just a five year stove. These stoves are made of high quality rolled 1/4 inch plate steel welded together by very competant craftsman and it shows. Buy one, you won't regret it. Don't let the posts about dealer flaws scare you from this stove. They are wonderful lifetime investments.
