Likes: Stove is well built and preforms as the sole heat source. Burns with air entering from beneath fire, (one of the few that do), and so it doesn't clog up with large coals like previous stove. Glass stays pretty clean. Easy to control fire. Styling is simple and pleasant. Holds more wood than the Jotul I had.

Dislikes: Door handle design takes getting used to, remove the darn spring as the others have done. Ashes are a bit of a pain to get into the little ash pans, but once a day will do it and not much flies around the room as with the bucket and scoop method of some others.

Comments: I had purchased another brand which wouldn't heat my home and switched to the Morso after several people highly recommend the way they burned. I was having a real problem with coal build up in the previous stove and the three way air inlets in the morso eliminate that problem. I have used it for a year now and it shows absolutly no wear after a full year of being the only heat source. It is a stove I feel confident in leaving or going to bed. Easy to load from front, or side door. Although the side door is best if your chimney may not draw quite hard enough. The stove is able to provide good heat in the coldest weather. My first stove left me cold most of the time. The glass stays reasonalby clean when burning good wood on moderate heat levels. Low will cause more darking as will greenish wood.
