Insert has long burn times- had enough coals for a hot restart after loading the firebox 1/2 full with oak 11 hours earlier. Unit is extremely easy to use after coming from a previous catalytic insert. The air wash works really well, had to clean glass on previous insert every day. The door seals well and air control is very effective.
Left side blower motor is a little more noisy than the right, have not contacted the dealer about it yet. Heat output is not as even as the catalytic unit.
I wish I had bought this unit earlier, much better insert than the catalytic. Would recommend to anybody looking for an insert.
