Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Hearth & Home, Brookings Oreg

Likes: Looks good. Multi fuel. Size.

Dislikes: Unit is poorly built. Cheesy!

Comments: We didn't even get it off the pallet. The stove is poorly built and flimsy when you remove it from it's packaging.
This thing is hardly freestanding, and below our standards.
You would think a cast iron stove would be more solid. But this thing barely holds itself up. The dealer says "that all pellet stoves are like this." Looks like I need to find a new dealer as well.

It's going back to the store today 3-6-07.
