Very clean burning. Gives off good amount of heat for size. I mentioned to a couple of friends that I will be upgrading to the Liberty next fall. Even though the stove is 8 years old, I got 3 offers to buy in a couple of days. Bottom line, they hold their value!
Pins that hold combustion tubes fall out periodically. Cheap and easy to replace though. Not much to complain about.
I have pushed this stove to the absolute limit in the harsh North Dakota winters and have been very satisfied. With some practice it is possible to attain long burn times. For a medium size home with at least some insulation, the Answer will do well. I will be upgrading to the Liberty next fall.
