Likes: Great looking stove, Efficient burn, can be placed very close to combustibles. Air wash on glass does an adequate job of keeping it clean.

Dislikes: The overall efficiency is not translated into heat output. The stove is a compromise between heat output and low clearance to combustibles. Seems you can\'t have both. Top with its extra metal cladding does not get hot enough to cook on.

Comments: I run this stove 24-7 from October to April. Sadly I am putting too much wood into it for the heat I am getting out of it. I am unable to heat my 1400 sq foot house as was suggested by the manufacturer. Now looking for a replacement.
