Likes: Small footprint, high output, easy to light, easy to control, burns evenly, big glass door,great airwash, front and side loading, ash pan and grate, solid construction, seems very efficient

Dislikes: Single insulated handle for three doors takes some getting used to.

Comments: Footprint very similar to Jotul 602B this Efel replaced but has a larger firebox and puts out much more heat. I believe these stoves are more popular in Europe than here in the states.This nicely heats our large kitchen and TV room of about 1000SF We also have put in a ceiling register to allow some heat to flow to the master bedroom above the kitchen. We have not used our hot air furnace yet this year and have had several days below freezing. We will see as we get into the winter.
