Likes: Excellent workmanship and overall quality. No shabby castings or ill fitting parts. Huge firebox. Plenty of surface area for heat disbursement. Smooth operating parts. Beautiful design. Does everything it\'s designed to do. It\'s really beefy at 656 pounds.

Dislikes: This isn\'t your grandpa\'s heater. Takes some time to get acquainted. A more specific section for fire building and maintenance in the owners manual would be helpful.

Comments: I love this stove. Don\'t know where the backpuffing complaints are coming from as I have not experienced any of them. Been heating with wood for more than 25 years. I\'ve owned everything from circulators to exotic Scandinavian models; but nothing comes close to this stoves performance. I would highly recommend this stove to anyone who is serious about heating a large home with wood heat.
