Likes: We installed the unit in a corner and used a metal chimney/flue. We also used the trim kit and the heat shield. The stove is very easy to light and with the glass front provides a nice view of the fire. I like the top loading feature too. This stove looks good even when its not burning.

Dislikes: Winters are too warm in Texas to fully utilize this stove.

Comments: Very happy with this stove. It was a bit more expensive than some of the other stoves, but it has been worth it.
