Likes: Soapstone really does retain heat for hours after fire dies down. Even heat,easily heats main floor and upstairs.
Most efficient when burning continuously (ie weekends).
Holds large load of wood.Able to have close clearance (8") with rear heat shield. Great appearance.

Dislikes: Draft control lever sticks a bit. Small amount of smoke spillage when reloading.Sits a bit low.

Comments: This is a real furnace. Very happy with the stove. Also had excellent service from Hearthstone and the dealer when I had questions. Would recommend it.
