Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 300 | House Size (Sq feet): 1000
Bought in 2001 , Price Paid: 1400
Location : Portland, ME 4101, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - The Finest Kind

Likes: Large glass door. Quick, easy lighting. VERY clean burning when used properly. Easily heats our entire home - this is our primary heating source. The convection without the blowers really works.

Dislikes: Can't get the advertised 9 hour burn time, but I always have hot coals in the morning to easily start the next fire with. I do wish the gas reburning tubes were a little higher in the box, they get in the way and stop me from really stuffing it with wood.

Comments: Good, basic, no-nonsense stove that makes heating with wood easy and enjoyable. I would buy it again.
