    Palazzetti.jpg I was a proud owner of Whitfields, Quadrafire Castile & Mt. Vernon but nothing compares to the Italian made Ecofire Prima. The stove is over 90% efficient and my pellet consumption is down by 30%. Beautifull Mojlica tile outside, this baby puts out 44k BTU's. Very quiet much quieter than my Quad's were. Self cleaning firepot to! Control panel on top has six different programs available that can be customized to turn on- off throughout the day or week. It also has night mode, standby mode and customizable automatic pellet feed power and blower motor speeds. My electric bill dropped also, uses 110 watts only! Comes with remote also. I have always been a tried and true american and always try and buy american products but, after doing the research nothing compared. My friend owns a Harman Accentra and after checking out my stove, he is putting his up for sale. If this stove catches on at less than $2,500.00, the American manufacturer's will get a run for there money ! Added a new picture this morning of the stove in action. Christmas week is supposed to get cold here in upstate New York, the Quad and hitfield struggled to keep the house warm, Let's see how the Pizza stove will do!

    I'm with Gfreek, I wanna see some pics :) How is the pot self cleaning (pics)?

    Was your Mt. Vernon an AE model, or non AE? I thought the AE is pretty quiet stove?

    Congrats

    Grats on the new stove.

    Where are the pictures??

    This sounds like a bad advertisement to me...

    I did a lot of homework when I was stove shopping, and read a good deal about these. They have a lot of nifty features, that WILL catch on to most stoves eventually...

    Built in programmable thermostat functions are nifty.
    Nifty remote.

    However.

    Small hopper - I can go through 3 bags a day, the hopper barely holds a bag. (Compared to Vernon)
    Small ash pan. I have to empty my big ash pan every 2 months, screw weekly! Imagine if you weren't burning premiums! (Gripe 1)
    110 watts without igniter is not that impressive.
    Suggested cleaning is DAILY vacuuming. Who has time for that... (Gripe 2)

    So this stove is more for the niche market that just wants a fire or a pretty stove, or is heating a small place with a low load.

    Its a beauty ! Now how well will it last and how long will it run trouble free ? Ive got a stove that no long has a company behind it (Bixby ) and parts are starting to get hard to find and are expensive tio say the least! is this the fate of this Italian Beauty ?

    The stove holds a bag of Pellets. After a month of use the ash pan has about an inch in the bottom of it. It heats my 1600 square foot downstairs and I perform a minor cleaning once a week. don't forget my friend, i got rid of my Quad for this stove with no regrets and I have owned Quads since 1984 which was an 1800-I wood burner!

    The stoves blower forces air at a high rate during shutdown through the pot to force out all the ashes

    Very Beautiful. I did some looking and before you posted pics, seen that dealer on eBay..

    Thats a good deal if it heats that well. The Round pot looks very much like a Quadrafire Burn Pot!

    Watched a video on youTube and it has a very vivid flame, and tall too :)

    I have a Harman Accentra insert, but I would go Italian if I went freestanding.
