Likes: Good looking unit and seems to put out good heat. In the 20's outside a typical burn goes like this:
1:30 in: Heats up the stove room (SR) to the low 80's rest of the house (ROH)to low 70's
6:00 in: SR slowly cools to mid 70's and ROH cools to upper 60's
9:00 in: SR has cooled to the low 70's to high 60's and ROH is in the mid 60's. this is when I re-load

Dislikes: At the end of the burn cycle my fan would constantly rattle, I had to install some bushings to keep it from happening.

Comments: Overall I couldn't be happier with this stove. My only previous experience with wood-burning is an outdoor wood burner/boiler, compared to that this thing is an absolute wood miser and still puts out great heat.
