Likes: Very efficient and clean burning - rarely generates visible smoke. Good control of fire. Beautiful view of fire - Window stays clean. Interesting architectural design compared to many steel stoves.

Dislikes: I miss having an ash drawer - new stove replaced 20-year old Hearthstone. Low firebox height limits wood load.

Comments: After two months of full time heating with the Mission, I am convinced that this is a very good stove.
