Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Very well made of excellent materials. Fit and finish are superb.
Thorough, well-written manual.
Not difficult to build good fires if you have good, dry kindling and pretty dry wood,


Dislikes: A bit finnicky at times to get started.

Comments: Overall, I like this stove very much. It definitely heats our small house pretty well and lets us save on natural gas bills.
