We purchased the Lopi Cod Cod this autumn. The CC is a beautiful , very heavy 3 cu ft stove that is just not performing at all during the shoulder season. We have heated our home with our own firewood for 35 years so we know a fair bit about stoves, operation and firewood . The Lopi CC has much shorter burn times (full load=5hr), dirty glass, high maintenance and no self monitoring controls. You must be messing around with it a lot! Seems like it has internal design problems still to be worked out. I thought this pricey, beautiful unit would really perform... Very, very disappointed at this time. Beware! Severe remorse at this point! Study one in operation through start up to extended burn before you purchase. We will run it through the winter I guess, but will be looking at alternative cats or other hybrid cats unless we can get some much better results this winer. Wish this beautiful stove would perform better. Very disappointed! Cosmetics are not enough for serious wood burners.
