Likes: Excellent heating capacity for room/house size, easy to start and maintain fire, very attractive unit, awesome view of fire (if you can keep glass clean), long burn time (7-8 hours +), excellent radiant heat throughout house, fairly good size ash pan, simple operation of stove.

Dislikes: build-up of film on glass - not very easy to keep clean and clear

Comments: We think this stove is awesome! Were tempted to go with 3 CB model because of smaller house, but are very glad we chose the Oslo.
