So, I just emptied the ash pan on my Harman P68 for the very first time, and all I can say is WOW! Who knew an ash pan could excite a guy so much? Coming from the Harman Accentra insert the past three Winters, WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The Accentra was a great stove, but the ash pan was beyond annoying. The thing needed to be emptied every 10 minutes! I'd be interested in hearing from other P68 owners on how frequently you empty this enormous ash pan? I'm so conditioned to emptying it every two days (in the Accentra, it's unmanageable after three days), that I'm just trying to get into a new rhythm with the P68. Could I actually burn a whole ton in one ash pan? Seems silly to ask but this pan is gigantic. I can see why they built a handle into the thing. This is going to make shutting the stove down in the dead of Winter a bit more manageable, just knowing that I don't need to do it, nearly as frequently.
