Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Large burn pot. Large hopper. Easy to use.

Dislikes: Its supposed to be a wood/corn burner. It does not burn just corn very well. 50/50 burns fine. Good routine hopper cleaning is a must. On just wood pellets it is much lower heat, good heat on corn/wood mix.

Comments: If I had to buy another one I would but would wait to find it cheaper. I plan to buy a Big E to put in the loft. The Cheap Charlie is in my family room/walk out basement area.
