Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Heats well and looks real pretty (mahogany finish).

Dislikes: I can't seem to keep the glass clean even if I burn real hot fires as the manual suggested.

Comments: I keep my 2300 square foot old farmhouse heated well with this unit. I've never used a woodstove before and it took me a while to figure out how to best burn a load of wood with this stove, but now that I have I'm having lots of fun. I almost bought the Isle Royale because it's bigger but the reviews on this site made it seem like much of the firebox was unusable because it's hard to reach the back portion with the topload. I guess I figured they'd heat about the same square footage because of that. If anyone has any specific questions you can email me at pfettig77@hotmail.com
