Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 300 | House Size (Sq feet): 1600
Bought in 2004 , Price Paid: 300
Location : Manitowoc, WI 54220, USA
Purchased from: Home Center/Hardware - Menards

Likes: Inexpensive, yet very efficient unit. Small, yet really puts out the heat. I can see where they claim 74% effecient.

Dislikes: Not the fanciest looking unit, but what do you expect for the price. Glass occasionally soots-up.

Comments: Very happy with the performance of this stove, considering how much I paid for it. Sad to say, but it outperforms my large cast-iron stove located in the basement, for about a 1/4 of the cost. Chimney setup probably also helped a lot on the performance of this unit - Duravent run straight up inside our house.
