Likes: LookS nice, decent burn time

Dislikes: Everything! This stove was honestly useless by the time the stove is up to temp and ratiating the kind of heat you expect from a wood stove your 1-1.5 hrs into burn if you don't have perfect wood, kindling etc you won't be lighting this stove either! Also bad smoke problems every time u open the door get ready to hear the wife complain!

Comments: Over priced useless stove! This is a stove that belongs in a room where looks Matter and will not be used often! You do get long but times but what dose that matter if your not getting heat from the burn? In my opinion get a good steel stove you will be much happier!
I ended up choosing the enviro 1700 step top based on reviews price heat output and capacity I ordered today and pick up in a few days I will review that once I have a good feel for it. Thanks for reading wish I had before purchasing
