Likes: its pretty to look at

Dislikes: Stove has too many adjustments, gaskets, parts and catalytic combustor which always isnt working or needs expensive replacement. Hard to start unless wood is PERFECTLY aged for a couple years.

Comments: Having wood stoves for the last 50 yrs., I really made a mistake with this one. Highly recommend anyone who wants to heat a house, to look elsewhere. If you want something pretty and use it once or twice a year....here's your baby.
