Burn time

Dislikes: Very strong odor when first burning, but every stove is supposed to be like that. Make sure you are able to vent house during first few burns. No smell after a week or so of burning.

Comments: We could not be happier with this unit! Any questions we have are easily answered by a phone call to the manufacturer. This stove is a beautiful unit. We heat our home exclusively with wood, and this is a nice change to our former cast iron, which was heating us out of the room the stove is in. This stove transfers heat to the air so nicely! We have a chair about three feet from the stove, and it never gets hot, but our room is a toasty 75 degrees most days. 30 mins to get a roaring fire going, and there are still embers 8 hours later to restart if necessary. We would highly recommend this product to anyone.
