The front door has a huge expanse of glass. It really stays clean and transparent and really sets the mood in the room.
Not very efficient. Goes through a lot of wood and gives back much less heat than our catalytic stove (The Lopi is downsatirs in a four level split-level home. Our other stove is on the third level up).
We seriously heat with wood. My time is too valuable to continue cutting splitting and moving wood to burn in this unit. I plan on replacing it when I save enough to buy another.
