Likes: Purchased 2006 Reputation of Jotul comments on this site. The stove is in basement so did not expect the amount of heat I am getting. It has kept my upstairs at approx. 73degrees and the basement at74-75. It is a nice looking piece, nice flame views and very well made.

Dislikes: Not really a complaint but haven't found the right combination to get a long burn. The longest has been 4 hours.



Comments: If in NJ go to Fireplaces Plus in Manahawkin,This is my first stove and Ron, Mark and Dylan are all extremely knowledgeable,professional and courteous. Yopu can feel comfortable calling if you have questions and they will gladly help even after you have the stove.
