Likes: Handsome stove, modern styling. Beautiful fire, flames. Lots of heat through the front glass.

Dislikes: We wanted a stove that radiated in all directions, but the 2110 doesn\'t radiate at all toward the back, and the sides take well over an hour to get hot. The stove is insulated on the sides and back, preventing good even radiation of heat. The stove draw well, actually too well, and way too much heat went up the chimney.

Comments: This stove was way too small for our situation. We didn\'t want a stove that would over heat our house, so we chose this one based on the BTU ratings listed in the literature, but this was misleading, as so much heat went up the chimney. We had to put wood in every hour to warm the house, and that meant emptying a lot of ash every day. We have replaced this stove with one that radiates more evenly. We previously burned wood in an \"airtight\" stove that had even radiation, so we wanted that feature again.
