Location : Bellvue, CO 80512, United States
Purchased from: Stove Dealer -

Likes: Easy to light. Good ventilation control. Can hold 18"-20" long split piece of wood. Good airwash and viewing window. Can easily warm/cook food on top.

Dislikes: Fan very loud on high little effect on low, manufacturer claims exaggerated- stove is inadequate for heating a home. Claims of 70,000 btu sustained most likely false. Small firebox needs reloading every 1.5- 2 hours (dry pine). Can only hold 3 split pieces of wood. Signs of poor workmanship although never over-fired, manufacturer does not stand by warranty, no ability to contact manufacturer directly. Would not recommend this unit for serious home heating. Front loading and no ash removal tray make this a messy unit.
