Likes: Big firebox, big glass area, excellent gasket design, quiet and highly adjustable easy to clean fan mounted in the front (where it should be), tough burn tubes can take a lot of abuse, don\'t have to remove burn tubes to clean flue(!), seems to maintain coals for very long time to make relighting easy. I get effective burns (stove above 350 degrees) for about 8 hours with good dry hardwood. Puts out a ridiculous amount of heat if run hot, easily heating my whole house.

Dislikes: Door glass gets a haze on it after a few uses no matter what I do. Bypass damper is clunky and loud if you aren\'t careful. This thing goes through a LOT of wood. I burn through a big wheelbarrow full of wood every 24 hours.

Comments: A very well designed and solid stove that is easy to use and puts out a LOT of heat while burning a LOT of wood. Very few drawbacks or annoying
