Likes: The minimum fireplace size information was the best of all the stoves I researched. Once we learned how to use it and got it set up properly this stove worked superb. PE's customer service is excellent. They coached me through getting the stove to work properly and were very patient and helpful. So far a great stove. Heats our entire house.
Fits in a very tight/small fireplace. Fire box size good for its size.

Dislikes: The Installation manual and operation instructions could be better organized and more detailed.

Comments: Depending on the particular instalation, the PE tech support recommended removal of the Outside Air (O/A) cover for an inside air installation if the house is air tight and the stove is a tight fit in the fireplace. Good news is the O/A cover can be removed after installation by removing a screw and with a little wiggling and jiggling
