Likes: Long burn time.
Simple to use.
High quality construction.
Long time between ash removal.
Any part you need gauranteed for life (not a manufacturers claim but an obvious one due to the huge numbers built)

Dislikes: No ash pan, but thats not really a problem for me.

Comments: This has to be one of the worlds finest stoves, if not the best.
Ours burns 24/7 thru the winter.In the morning I rake the ash, throw a stick on and away it goes for the rest of the day, although a small stove due to this long burn time it keeps the heat coming and creates a comfortable heat throughout the home unless it is very cold. We have a temperamental climate in Scotland which means winters can be very cool or freezing cold, but always very windy and ofcourse Scotland being so far north we have a very long winter season, not so extreme in temperature as say Canada but much longer.
