The stove is very well made.
The stove is impossible to clean over the top firebricks. Ash accumulates in this area on its way to the vent. Also the glass will not keep clean. After having a Vermont Castings Resolute stove for 20 years I bought the Aspen and was very disappointed. In fact I am going to sell it this fall an get another brand. I have burned wood from my 27 acre woodlot for over 20 years so, I think I know stoves and understand how they work.
