Likes: Unit heats well, most of the heat is efficiently transmitted into living space.Looks good

Dislikes: Chimney setup sensitive, did not like our external masonary chimney.Could not get enough heat up the chimney and creosote buildup was terrible even with good dry wood.

Comments: Would recommend this stove if the chimney setup was to be made for the stove otherwise its a risky venture to get it working properly
