Likes: Excellent stove, will practically burn you out of the house! Airwash 90% ok, glass still smokes a bit, but it is probably because of the local cottonwood I burn. I love my stove!

Dislikes: Dealer tried to slip me a floor model, though I had agreed to pay the asking price for one to be shipped in on a pallette. When caught in the act, the dealer reluctantly ordered one in.

Comments: Great manufacturer (my in-laws have a lopi from the early 80's they love) and great stove!!! Next time, I will drive farther to deal with a different dealer.
