Superior combustion effeciency -
Gets up to Clean Burn Temp. fast!!
I believe their 75% effeciency rating on this unit.
Continues clean burn when turned-down.
Great flame display. Glass stays cleaner, longer.
Longer between ash cleaning than before.
Air control is a bit "sticky" at times.
Not as fancy some stoves, but good
enough for the price. Small unit, so
burn times are about 4 hrs max.
This is our 2nd unit of this model. It replaces
a big, overpriced & under-performing cast-iron
unit. Was ready to blame the misgivings of my
cast-iron unit on my chimney, until I installed
the above unit. The difference was immediate.
I would recommend this model to anyone.
A real "diamond-in-the rough" in my opinion
