Likes: It is hard to top the service. I wish more business's were as helpful and friendly. They helped me arrange the cheapest shipping across the US. Special paint color for no additional cost. Quality craftsmanship best describes this stove. The stove always draws compliments.

Dislikes: It takes 2 hours to warm a cold room. A steel or cast iron stove would be better for the quick heat. Not the stove of choice to back-up-to to get warm. The back of your pants will not feel hot aginst you skin when you walk away.

Comments: Creates a warm room like forced air heating. Not the hot spot in the corner. I was concerned about building a wooden mantle near the stove yet the radiant heat has not been a problem. Great for keeping the house warm thru the night. Not your typical wood stove. If you want to keep a stove burning for 24hr/day do not look farther.
