Easy top load. Burns wood very efficiently. I can fill it up with wood (Oak or Madrone) and it will keep the house warm for 8 to 10 hours, due to the catalytic converter.
Handle gets build up on the inside making it difficult to turn.
Although this is our first wood burning stove we are very happy with it. We have friends who have wood burning stoves and they seem to go through wood at a much higher rate than we do.
