Likes: The stove is very easy to start. Heats up pretty quick and has good air controls. Wife likes the modern look of the square (wide) door. Added a speed control to the fan for less noise. Unit puts out lots of heat at the high burn rate. Wood burns down to nothing but fine ash. Stove is controllable for a slow clean burn as well. Firebox is nice for multiple loading directions. Like the durable stainless steel baffle. Door glass stays clean with good burning technique. Overall this is a nice setup and would recommend for new construction or remodels. After using this and many other setups I still prefer a free standing stove.

Dislikes: Unit leaks air from below the ash lip. This is likely from the outside air intake.
