Likes: Very attractive stove. Easy to install and use. Had problems at first getting a hot fire but realized it was the wood I was using. Now that I have decent wood (dry oak and maple), it puts out good heat and the glass stays clean.

Dislikes: The blower fan is weird. It has a thermostat so it will come on at 140 F and turn off at 130 F. Sometimes the chimney is 400 F and the fan shuts off. Don't know if thermostat is flakey or not.
