Works and heats as advertised. Will burn for 5-7 hrs with full load. Opt. blower is great.
Cannot keep glass clean when damper is more than 1/2 closed. Small ash pan.
We are generally satisfied with this stove. It holds heat for at least a few hours after fire is out. This unit replaced one that was 30 years old so we don't have any other one in it's league for a hands on comparison but I would consider buying another if and when I had to. Adding an outside air supply line this year, it might help with it's performance and keeping glass clean.
