Good looking, reasonable size
Fair price for a respected brand
Fire box access very limited by obtrusive secondary burn baffle.
Fingers burn on unprotected various controls.
Ash pan very small pretty much a waste and only something else to monitor and maintain
Fire box base almost level with opening much ash escape, ash lip difficult to sweep clean
No blower option available
Be cautious with top venting. Top vent flue collar adapter is pretty cheesy
and very difficult to inspect for integrity after install
For a stove that's been around a while there is a lot of clumsiness about this model.
Beveled top creates very small usable stove top surface, especially w/top vent
I think its good looks distract from some annoying liabilities
