Likes: This stove is absolutely incredible! Great air wash(clean glass) yery easy to light, easy to control and unbelievable burn times!

Dislikes: Really none that I can think of and that's saying a lot comming from me I am very hard to impress! If I had to give you something id say I dislike that they drill through the stove to bolt to pallet and give you silly rivets to block holes... But reall not a big deal and like every stove out there the ash pan is a little cheese witch I reall don't care as I will never use it anyways as most people don't.

Comments: I have to say this was an up grade for me from my 2004 hearthstone homestead (pos)! This stove I don't believe can be beat for the capacity, burn time, btu out put and cost! Plus it's a great looking stove.. I installed this only a few days ago and have only burnt two time and it really isn't to cold out yet so it's kind of hard to really see how she works but from what I have seen there is no question in my mind this thing rocks! And the bur time wow! First burn not even a full load of mixed hard wood oak,maple and I got an honest 6 hours of viewable flame and 3.5 hrs of cherry red heat producing coals!! I can honestly say I think I can baby this thing into a 13-14 hr burn if I stuff it full and throttle her down!! I also want to note the dealer! If your in the market please give him a call this guy was amazing! Very easy to deal with knows his stuff and actually appreciates your business! It wasn't like he made the sale and that's it your done he has made a lifetime customer! Tell him Craig sent ya!
