This stove is easy to start and burns wonderfully. Doesn'nt use up as much wood as my 25 year, older vermont casting stove did.The neighbors enjoy the reduced smoke level also.
The fire box is a little small so you have to watch your log size,also the baffle tubes on top limit the height you can install wood up to.This a covection stove so it takes a little longer to heat up the room then my old stove.The glass does get a little dirty with each burn but since it's my first season maybe I'm burning at too low a rate and it's not the air washes fault.
I installed this stove to exact manufacturers specs, this makes a big difference with any stove you choose, so follow the manual.Choose your dealer and installer carefully so you won't have problems later.All the work in my research paid off and I'm comfortable to recommend this model you'll be too.
