Other Information about the Home and Stove

Location : flemington, nj ,
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store -

Likes: It puts out some (emphasis added) heat.

Dislikes: What a total disappointment and waste of money. This Chinese-built stove is made of cheap sheet metal and crummy components, unlike Quadra Fire stoves of years gone by. This thing is simply junk. It squeaks and rattles to no end. If you want a junk stove that costs a lot of money but doesn't put out much heat, then this is the stove for you. If you want a quality stove that's built to last, heats efficiently and is worth the price, then this stove is not for you.

Comments: Did I mention that this thing is built like junk?
