Likes: visually appealing with leg installed is about it!

Dislikes: even though advertised as a large it has a small load capacity. Handle can cause burns as it has a wire wrap around it and not very welled sealed. MFG\'s user guide just non existent. Doesn\'t perform well.

Comments: Come to find out in Mass., it is against the code to put a reducer from 8\" to 6\" flu. Furthermore, the stove is very quirky with updraft and one only finds out how bad is after installed and in use.
