Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Good looking, glass door, second side door, ash pan,

Dislikes: Ashes must be emptied at least every 2-4 days; a hassle even with ashpan. Air damper is counter intuitive; when wide open most people would think it is closed. Can only hold a fire for 6 hours max, even with Larch and Douglas fir wood.

Comments: Good stove for recreational heating or occasional use. Not a good choice for whole house heating.
