    The manual (on mine it's page 25) says it is normal and tells you to open the windows for air circulation - there's a Caution box on the bottom of the page about it.
    Just interested if there's something wrong with it or if American made is just always better? Are you certain any "American made" stove is really made here?

    American made is the best IMNSHO.

    Everywhere else excepting China is second choice.

    China is my lowest preference due to the massive amount of trade deficit I see.

    So far, nothing serious wrong with it... Sloppy sticker application (warning labels, etc) and a stripped-out screw are about all I have to whine about. I'm just not happy about the salesperson's mistake regarding the country of origin.

    Can you ever really be certain ? I suppose not... But I would've been happier if it came in a box that said "Made with pride in the USA".

    The Paint smell will take some time... probably the best thing you can do to get the "burn off" over-with... is to turn the stove on high.. run for about 4 hours... ( make sure to open windows, turn off smoke detectors)... and hopefully by then it will have dissipate... If not... repeat !!!
