Likes: Nice clean burn,very easy on wood load, looks nice,real easy to start and it exceeds burn time listed with out any fussing with control. Been burning wood for over 20yrs. and this is by far the best stove yet!!!!


Dislikes: Don't use wet sponge on white ennamel when hot!!
It will leave stains, they will clean off but who needs the extra work!

Comments: Dealer (Preston tradding post) could not have been nicer people to deal with. They knew their product and had no pressure tactics. Went to alot of dealers but their prices as well as their know how sealed the deal.
