Likes: Beautiful (Black Cast Iron with no frills), glass stays clean, secondary combustion area is well in view and produces stunning flames and patterns, stays warm for hours after fire is out, excellent heating stove with low maintenance.

Dislikes: Very finicky, but if you take the time to study this stove, it CAN be tamed, air lever gets very hot and is in a bad place. If you live in a cold climate, get the fresh air kit and this bad boy will cook your whole house.
