Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Installed in 1993, this stove is still going strong. Although some of the porcelain paint has chipped off the top (I keep touching it up), he still is very easy to operate and works great. A decent sized-stove that has served me well.

Dislikes: Bushing on door latch isn't the sturdiest material, but I learned to give it a spin everytime I open/close it so it wears evenly. Door is slightly warped on left side, perhaps it came that way from the factory. As said earlier porcelain paint chips off the top.

Comments: This stove was bought back when Dovre was made in Illinois. They bounced around a little and now are part of Quadri-fire; you can still see hints of his design in the newer Quad stoves, and Dovre still is made in the U.K. Parts are near impossible to get, but there aren't many parts to go bad on this stove. Very pleased with him since 1993...
