Likes: Nice looking insert with fairly long burn times

Dislikes: My suggestion to you would to stay away from Napoleon all together. I bought my insert 3 years ago and since then the stove has gone through 6 blower motors at over $300 per motor and countless sets of waffle boards in the top of the stove.

I have tried to deal through the dealership and through Wolf Steel themselves. All I get is the same runaround, there is nothing wrong with our stove. What a crop of crap, so they are basically telling me to go screw myself and it\'s not there problem.

I am now pulling the stove out of my house and now looking at anything but Napoleon.

Just a little advice for everyone thinking of buying this piece of crap product and even worse customer support.
