Likes: Absolutely love this stove, you'll find some bad reviews but they were in the earlier production models. Lopi has done a good job fixing all the initial problems. Stove throws a lot of heat and I love how the cast iron puts the heat out. Fit and finish of the stove is great and it has exceeded my expectations. We only turn the heat on in our house if we've been gone on vacation for a couple days, etc...this stove provides all our heat for our 1880 sq ft ranch house. It has standard ceilings and an open layout which helps. Lastly, I've been out cutting wood for the winter twice with my brother. Both times he complained I was cutting the wood too long...this stove will take a lot longer log than his insert; a real plus.

Can't say enough good things about Denio's in Cameron, TX. Good, honest, hard working people....from Austin up to Waco you should give them a chance for your business.

Dislikes: this isn't a knock on the leyden but on cast iron. I'm sold on cast iron for looks and how they hold/put out heat but you can't cook on a cast iron stove the way you can on a steel stove. This won't be a consideration for most but it bugs me....
