Likes: Nice looking stove,made well.Bought warming trays for sides to keep food warm when entertaining.

Dislikes: I used to think the cat wasn't working correctly until I bought a thermometer.It has helped a whole lot. Don't even bother bypassing the unit until the top of the stove is 400 degrees.It could take an hour or more to reach that temperture. Use smaller sized wood for this stove and be prepared to feed it plenty of wood!

Comments: Buy a thermometer! Save yourself a lot of time and effort.
