    We gave our pellet stove to our son and invested in a propane Napoleon Gas Insert (XIR4). It was supposed to be their top of the line insert. What a mistake! This stove had so many issues that the manufacturer sent a regional trouble shooter here from Canada to find out why the problems couldn't be resolved. When he couldn't resolve the issues he brought a 2nd stove in and that one had similar problems. No more Napoleon. We're now researching a Mendota FV44i which is supposed to be one of the best!

    Any comments on the Mendota?

    The 44i Mendota is the best out there. Great flame, great heat and a lot of awesome features. Great unit.

    Mendota makes excellent inserts. I am sure you will be happy with it. Mendota is also a excellent company to work with.
