Likes: For a small insert, this thing can put out some heat. It's easy to start fires and heats up quickly. The glass stays pretty clean. Definitely a great stove for the money.

Dislikes: Small firebox, which means overnight burns can be tough. Loud fan that rattles at times, but it's better than hearing the oil furnace run. Gasket material around the door glass loosens up quickly and has to be adjusted at times to maintain the seal.

Comments: I'm looking or another insert, but only because I need a bigger firebox that can give me consistent overnight burns. Some things seem a bit chincy, but it's a great insert for the money.
