Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: easy to light, long burns even with pine, great looking and solidly constructed

Dislikes: a bit slow to warm up but hey, once it gets warm, what a nice comfortable heat.

Comments: we have a new log home with radiant floor heating in the concrete basement floor and the main floor. BOught the stove thinking to use it as "supplemental" heat. Has become our primary heat source for the main floor. The radiant system never really turned on all winter except in the basement. We burn pine (no hardwood to speak of in South Dakota-at least where we are. We've had the stove for one winter. We've run it day and night. Have yet to clean the glass, removed the ash three times, and, are surprised to find the flue completely clean! One of the best purchases we made with the new place. Would highly recommend this stove to anyone.
