Likes: Easy to light, 2.9 cufoot fire box, Burns incredibly clean. Beautiful veiw with large window in door. In expensive. EPA, UL,CSA approved. Throughs off good heat. When loaded, can get approx 6hr burn time, enough coals to relight with just putting wood in fire box. Not fancy for basement use. Five year warranty, fire brick lined box. Has four rows of secondary burn tubes. Heavy stainless steel insulated baffle.

Dislikes: vent control rod gets sticky. Thin gauge plate steel, who knows how long it will last?

Comments: At this point, this stoves works great. Burns very clean. If I knew as much as I know now about wood stoves, I would have bought this stove years ago. It is replacing a very small Regency free standing stove that I under bought for the intended application. I did not want to spend big money at this time so for amount paid it seems to be worth every penny. Hopefully it will last a few years
