Likes: Stove heats up quickly and is easy to use. Glass stays fairly clear, unless flames are directly against it. Small size- perfect for small house or room. Beautiful styling.

Dislikes: Shallow firebox makes it somewhat difficult to load. Small firebox means using smaller pieces of wood- shorter burn times. I'm burning alder and spruce- which adds to the short burn time. Air adjustment is small and heats up- use a piece of wood to adjust.

Comments: Good little stove- and good looking. I was concerned about buying larger stove that over-heated the house. The Nordic is the right size, but the small firebox means you load it more often.
