Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Heats 50 precent more square footage than manufacturer claims

Dislikes: Small log size -- instructions say up to 18-inch logs but that requires twisting and turning; 15-inch or 16-inch logs work best.

Comments: Great product; extremely efficient; works better than promised and heats my whole house instead of just the downstairs.
