Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - the fireplace

Likes: looks great, blower works great

Dislikes: too small,over engineered,with blower on top never gets hot enough to heat water pot,broke glass putting in long logs,i should have shopped around before buying.i replaced a dutch west i had for almost twenty years,it rusted out.i dont like the single draft and flue controls.side door useless for loading.they should have cured the paint at the factory,when i burn at optimum temperature it smells and my smoke detector goes on .dissapointed

Comments: i miss my dutch west,this stove was pricey,4300$ installed,ive only had it a few months warm weather for November and December time will tell, when i here some ash or whatever falling down the chimney i wonder where its building up at.
