Likes: Looks great with nice big window
Fit into my fireplace without extending over hearth slab
Easy to maintain
Keeps us warm

Dislikes: Could use a better airflow control

Comments: It took me a few burns to get the hang of starting and re-starting a fire.
As a beginner I realize now the key to clean glass is true fully seasoned wood.
I supplement with Envi 8's in between loads of cordwood and easily get overnight heat and an easy re-start in the am.
