Likes: Heats like a banchee: 3/8 steel top will go to 700 deg F if needed. Secondary Burn is on EBT, and runs on auto when firebox gets hot enough, turns off when not needed. Keeps house toasty down to below zero easily. Very easy to control even with high chimney and temps down to zero with wind.


Comments: Best Stove I've every used in 35 years of wood heating. Fire is easy to start, and gets to secondary burn very quickly and stays there even when turned all the way down. Holds a fire a long time. Clear Ceramic front is beautiful and easy to see condition of the fire; clean off easily at edges with a little ash and water. Air wash keep ceramic clean except at edges in very low burn levels.
