Likes: auto stoker-fill the 100 pd. hopper and it will burn for at least 1 1/2 days(rice coal), vented with SWG power venter through basement wall (no chimney), heat dial, built in fan, large viewing window, easy to clean

Dislikes: The heat settings go from 1-5. From 1-1/2 it radiates little if any heat. On 2 1/2 it starts to through decent heat. On 5 the coal does not burn as efficiently(hot coals will fall into the ash pan before they are burnt up
