Likes: When it was new and the outside temp dropped to -40F stove kept the house warm. Burned about 7 chord a year. Fire was still there in the morning after loading stove before bed. Did what it was supposed to do and fulfilled all manufactures claims for use.

Dislikes: After 7 years of use water started running out of clean out in the back of stove all over floor constantly. Ruined wall to wall carpet. Had to spend $7000 on porcelain tile for purchase and installation . House stinks from creosote. Door glass hold down studs broken. No seal on door. Baffle seals on bypass deteriorated. Cracks on front of stove at corners of bottom of the door. Stove is 10 years old. Started leaking water from cleanout onto floor 3 years ago. Missionary chimney in custom home paid $25000 for chimney. Creosote build up in chimney is unbelievable. Stove is junk. would not buy another. Gold trim on door deteriorated and tarnished from door leaking gas. Going to a pellet stove on Tuesday. Going to throw away a $4000 stove after only 10 years of use. What more can I say stove is garbage would not buy another
