Beautiful castings -- looks like a nice piece of furniture. Consistent heat output. Big viewing window that stays clean. Holds heat for a long time.
I wish the ashpan were bigger, and that it came with a handle.
I upgraded from an older, inefficient woodburning insert. I was forever cleaning the glass, and it didn't put out much heat unless the blower was on and went cold fast when the fire went out. I'm burning about 1/3 less wood (at least) now. I love this stove.
