Likes: Great stove for the price... heats the entire lower level good burn time for a small stove. Clean castings and seals.. stove top can be cooked on.. thermostat works well.. Door lever is wood..can open it with out a glove

Dislikes: Glass needs cleaned often.. Will only accept 16" logs.. Ash pan could be larger.. thermostat lever gets hot..could use a wood lever like the door ( I am using a wooden bead that works good )

Comments: Good looking stove, would buy it over again. Dealer had limited information on unit. Manufacturer's web site had limited information as well. But there is a Toll Free # for tec support and staff was very friendly and helpful. This stove replaced an older wood stove with-out the clean burn Tecnology and the difference is well worth the change.
