Comments: What a great stove! I have the extended model (great ledge for a pot of water to humidify). It pumps out the heat when up to temp. The blower works very well to push the heat out, especially during startup. Once fired up, the blower doesn't seem necessary. The firebox is big enough for large and lengthy logs. Overnight burn can last upwards of 9 hours when packed well. I use this stove 24/7 to heat my entire house during Buffalo winters! I'm very pleased with it.
