Throws a ton of heat. Nice big window to view fire. Hinged door allows full view of fire when opened--unlike other units that don't open all the way--good if you want to roast a marshmallow or two. Stove top ledge for water vessel.
Occasional downdraft problem for smokey start when cold--this may relate to wind conditions & house position in a valley--have learned to be aware of this and wait for draft to reverse (leave door ajar for a bit) before starting fire.
This unit heats a large room with a cathedral ceiling and two adjoining rooms-- Love it! Would run it constantly if I didn't have to go to work all day :(
