Likes: Current oil price today $1.46 gal. Outside temp. 17 deg. Inside my living room giving me the opportunity to pass on this information to you or whomever about this fantastic Jotul F400-Castine a very warm 86 deg.

Dislikes: Ash pan seems a little small being I have to empty it every 2 days when burning continuous. Probably normal for most stoves? Glass doors get very black when burning slow, but become crystal clear when I fire it between 500 and 650 degrees on top of stove,not pipe. Every other week end I let stove cool to room temp. and clean glass with RUTLAND glass cleaner with silicone. This is a beautiful casting and would match any living room like a fine piece of furniture. Needless to say we love our F400-Castine. It was a great investment. To the oilman we won't see you to soon!
