Nice looking stove. Once the stove gets going it throws off some good heat for it's size.
Small fire box. Hard to establish good draft. Cheap Handle. You need plenty of SMALL Splits of wood. You are lucky if you get 2-3 hours on a load of wood on slow burn but watch for cresote.
If you are looking for a functional stove that can maintain a fire overnight, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a nice decoration that you can have a fire in once in a while, this is your stove.
