Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 180 | House Size (Sq feet): 1650
Bought in 2009 , Price Paid: 3800
Location : Portland, OR 97201, USA
Purchased from: Home Center/Hardware - EcoHaus

Likes: Very Attractive unit with large glass panel to see fire. Nice "baking compartment" we use to warm up food (think slow microwave.) Very solid construction. Surfaces do not get too hot, seems safe and fireproof.

Dislikes: Expensive. Tiny firebox, I have to cut down all our splits, takes a max 14". Produces a nice even heat, but doesn't get super hot, a little undersized for our old house. Have to load frequently (did I mention tiny firebox...)

Comments: Knowing what I know now, I would have gotten a bigger unit. If you have a small, and/or modern (well insulated) home, this is a great stove, almost a piece of furniture.
