Easy starts, smoke free reloads, high efficiency, long burn times, excellent heat output, very convenient ash removal system, all doors have quality adjustable latches and fiberglass gasket rope seals.
Requires more futzing around to get the efficient burns (hot bed of coals required before closing bypass damper) compared to other non-cat stoves.
