Likes: Beautiful Red enamel Front and top loading stove, can heat up the whole house for hours. The stove is easy to operate and controlling the burn is easy. We are proud owners of our lopi.

Dislikes: The only problem I have experienced after two years is a bubbled up strip of paint in the top front lip of the stove. We are still trying to figure that out. I\'ve heard that the paint on these stoves can peel/burn off after a while so I\'m not very concerned at the moment. Eventually I may sand it off and re-paint, but for someone that uses it as part of the decoration, this may be a caveat particularly if it is a color that can easily show imperfections.

Comments: It decorates the front of my kitchen/bar elegantly. I had someone from our fire depatment install it and he did a fantastic job.
