Likes: Very good looking stove (unpainted), puts out some nice heat, easy enough to use, seems well built, glass wipes clean very easily.

Dislikes: None that I didn't already know about.

Comments: This is my first wood stove and love it. It took me a half dozen or more tries to get the hang of proper burning but now it's easy. We don't rely on it for our main heat source as it's more of a toy for cold days. It's heats two levels of new house (2800 sq ft.) no problem. It's positioned inside a brick fireplace built just for it and looks really great. Couldn't be happier with this thing.
