Dislikes: This stove is the worst i have ever had and i am 56 and have burned wood all my life. The fountain assembly is an engineering nightmare built with the least longlasting material possible. This coupled with their hiding behind dealers to avoid having to even talk to angry customers and selling the company to get out from under their warranty proves to me they know their mistake and refuse to make good on it. I won't even sell this boat anchor because i would have to rip the buyer off to con him into thinking he is buying a working stove. STAY AWAY FROM VERMONT CASTINGS!
