Room Size (Sq ft): | House Size (Sq feet): 3000
Bought in 2000 , Price Paid: 1800
Location : Norwich, CT. , USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Preston Trading Post

Likes: Nice Looking Unit.

Dislikes: Overpriced, Terrible design and construction.

Comments: Cast iron back plate needed replacement due to cracking - cost $100.00 plus. Burn plate needed replacement twice over an 8 year period, cost $100.00 plus each time. Adirons snap off easily. I replaced 2 in 8 years. Stove is only good for a 4-5 hour burn, NOT overnight as advertised. Glass does not stay clean as advertised. AVOID THIS STOVE LIKE THE PLAGUE!
