Dislikes: Disappointed with burn times vs.salespersons claims
I get coals in the morning (after a full load at approx 10pm) in dead of winter. But it has long since stopped heating to any degree. Perhaps a 3 1/2 to 4 hr burn

Comments: the room I am heating has huge windows on two walls (Floor to ceiling on one wall) and this unit keeps it cozy at -20 degrees centigrade. I put 3 1/2 full cords through this unit over each of the last two winters with barely any creosote build up
