Likes: The stove heats up very fast

Dislikes: I would like to know what they mean by 10hours + of burn time. if they mean that after 6 or 7 hours you have a couple of coals that atre glowing on the bottom of the stove @150degrees than, they have something. i can't seem to get more than 4 hous or any real heat. I have the stove in my unfinished basement and if i keep my basement door open it will heat part of my house. I have to stove less than two months and the gasket around the door is broken. Also i already used over one cord of wood and its been warm out! How many cordsof wood do people use in an avagage winter? If this keeps up oil will be less expensive and mush easier
