Likes: Provides excellent heat with an over-night burn regardless of the type of wood used. Good, solid, construction. Fan is quiet yet powerful. Only mid size stove of the three manufactures I was looking at that had the wood pcs. going straight in instead of side ways.

Dislikes: Window gets black very easily - usually within a day.

Comments: I did all my research on the internet regarding what wood stove was best for ME. I narrowed my search down to three manufactures with one model for each. Then I found every distributor/dealer in Wpg. that sold them. I started getting quotes and comparing via E-Mail until I hit the rock bottom price. Then I visited the three finalist and Dave Rousseau at F & C convinced me his was the best. I got the stove with a pedistal, blower, ash tray including taxes for $1,232.00. (That's 14% for taxes up here) I probably saved myself $400.00 doing it this way, plus I got exactly what I wanted.
