Likes: It can take a 19'' log easily, burn times are very good, and the air wash works well. I did not get the blower; I use an Eco-fan which is silent. I have it in a large kitchen and use small doorway fans for circulation. This set up keeps my four bedroom house at about 70 degrees. I also have a Napolean 1100 fireplace insert in the living room, which I never use if the Drolet is going. The Napolean is also a good unit but if power goes out the fan doesn't work.

Dislikes: None.

Comments: Manufacturer and dealer are excellent. A small roller mechanism attached to the door bent after using it last year. I contacted all concerned and they sent me 4 extras within a week. I actually could still use the original after straightening it out on the vice. Very pleased all the way around.
