Comments: this is the best wood burning unit i've had in 28 years of experience. having gone through two wood stoves/fireplaces and one wood-burning furnace in that time, i can say that this is far superior to anything i've owned previously. we've had it for about three months now and still marvel at the control of the burn, the clean glass, the nice even heat and the available power. it's hard to imagine anyone not liking it. i also appreciate the dealer's pointing it out to me in the first place, since i was looking for another cast iron device and would not have recognized this for the gem it is without a little sales work on his part.
