Likes: This stove is so impressive, from it's ease of operation to it's aesthetic beauty, I cannot say enough good things about it. Slow, even heat, I love to cook on it, the kids like to nap about 5' in front of it. Very easy to clean with the ashpan set up. We installed it ourselves and are very pleased with the help we got from the staff at Woodstock, they are amazing. Customer Service is a real priority at this company and it shows. I will be buying another for our house addition in the near future.

Dislikes: I wish it had a completely smooth soapstone top to make cooking easier, so instead I had them custom cut soapstone blocks to put on the top for a cooking surface.

Comments: It has never dropped below 250F overnight yet, and that is even on nights down in the teens. We use it as our primary heating source and it works beautifully.
