Likes: Nice looking unit.Glass stays clean, matter of fact we've not had to clean it after a month of daily use. LOTS of heat and very little ash. Ash removal system is great.

Dislikes: I'd like a bigger loading door and firebox, it seems very small compared to our last stove. Had to have the directions handy the first few days to refer to regarding controls/adjustments of damper setting/cat converter.

Comments: This stove fires up quickly, gets "hot" and stays hot. Within 20-30 minutes it puts off good "back warming" heat in the immediate area. Burns forever, I'm amazed at how much less wood we use compared to our old Fisher stove which then means less hassle with the ash removal. We use the stove and the fan in our HVAC system to heat our entire 2300 sq ft single story home. It was pricy but well worth it!!!
