Easy to load firebox, fits in small hearth opening, throws the heat, little to no smoke, very efficient. Blower works great, not very loud, especially on lower settings.
Sticks out a ways onto hearth, which is either a pro or a con, depending on what you want.
I love this stove! It heats my entire 1400 sq.ft. Cape easily, and fit into the small fireplace opening I had by extending out on to the hearth 10" or so. Easy to keep a hot, efficient, clean fire rolling. Vents work great for control. I don't like or do "low and slow" burns, but a "normal" load before going to bed at night with about 1/4 of the vent open leaves an easy "reload and go" coal bed in the morning. Highly recommended.
