Other Information about the Home and Stove

Bought in 2006 , Price Paid: 1600
Location : , New Y , USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Heat Revival

Likes: Easy to use, nice fire view, excellnt heat output, reasonable burn time, ash pan.

Dislikes: Glass gets dirty easily unless burned real hot, initial lighting of fire can be a bit difficult.

Comments: This is a great stove for small to medium size areas. Burn time is hot for 4 hours and enough coals to start up again after 6 or 7 hours. Nice looking and a well made stove. Ash is a bit hard to clean on the matte finish and I would get the blue/black enamel if I had to do it again. You can't go wrong with this stove.
