Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: compact stove unit, ash pan

Dislikes: air wash doesn't keep the door clean as advertised. Build up of cresote in chimney and under top of stove. Using seasoned hard wood - manufacturer had no answer for problem, after sale no help was sent when requested

Comments: We will be buying another wood stove this year - the cresote build up really bothered me so I wouldn't recommend buying one.
