    We have a Hearthstone mansfield, going into its 5th burn season.. 4-5 cords go through it per season...it still looks great..We looked at one of those pacific energy units...thought they looked sharp..We know someone who bought one and they are happy with it.

    Porcelain is not paint. It's a fired on finish. Should hold up very well unless you like to crack walnuts with a hammer on the stove. If the finish started failing I would consider it a warranty defect unless it was from mistreatment of the stove (most likely, severe overfiring).

    You should be happy with the PE. There have been lots of glowing reports about them.

    They have the red unit also.. I think that stove is made mostly of steel...IMO it is one of the best looking steel ones...If the house is cold, that will get the heat out quickly..Good luck..

    Seconded, or thirded......

    Enamel that is fired on can last decades - antique kitchen stoves from the 20's often still have original porcelain. In this case, you are even better off since the porcelain is on a convection chamber, not on the stove itself. This is subject to even less stress from the heat.

    Great looking stove . Easy to clean . stays clean looking all winter . The red get just a little darker when hot and lighter when cool . Love this stove . Its worth every cent for the Porcelain add on .

    How long a burn time do you get when its filled right up, all i have is softwood birch alder hemlock yellow ceder ect.
    i currently have the super 27 one model below summit.
