Very large glass for such a small stove (good view of flames). Suitable for smallish fireplace openings, but good heat output. Can get relatively long pieces of wood in for such a small stove (will take 1 foot long logs)
Not suitable if used in a very large open area (heat output 6Kw). Difficult to get logs to last a long time. Usually needs refuelling every 20mins or half an hour. Screen wash not bad but can begin to mist up after 2 uses - need to clean to keep absolutely clear. No 'pre heated' air intake at top for 'turbo burn' of exhaust gases, which means this does not classify as a 'clean burn' stove for regulatory puprposes. Still, pretty clean though (no visible smoke from chimney).
Over all very pleased with it.
