Likes: A pleasure to look at!Wonderful steady heat.easy to operate and seems very responsive to the controls.Window seems to stay clean so far,and I love the side loading over the front.Ive had two other stove in the past and both had the huge front door and I didnt like it,ambers poping out and massive amounts of heat blasts you in the face.Awesome stove.

Dislikes: With soapstone you should get it up to temp slowly and this can be a drag,so far im only building small fires to season everything so im getting it up to 350 or so and letting it go out. Im hoping after that break in period and once I have a large bed of coals I can get it going in the morning before work and again after work without having to start from scratch.

Comments: This Is a gorgeous stove!
Theres something about this stove.....I cant quite put my finger on It.It looks like a very old antique and gives me the feeling that It has been around a very long time heating someones home for the last 125 years.I love It.
